Live Your Dreams: A Layout for Visible Image's May Anything Goes challenge

I just love using the Visible Image stamps on my layouts and was able to use four gorgeous stamps for this layout!!

Here you can see the beautiful Small Butterfly stamp which I have stamped in Jet Black Archival Ink and fussy cut out. I did three of them to add dimension to my layout.  I also used the Retro Dots Background stamp with some of my acrylic paint to add texture and dimension under my photo. I love to use gesso or paint on some of the texture stamp for that added dimensionality and different look they give. The paint is more opaque and the texture stands out from the page.

Here you can see the subtle stamping I did on the wooden banner piece on the layout, my favorite script stamp, Bronte Script. I also used the gorgeous Cobblestone Fence chipboard from Molossi, painted in cream acrylic paint to tone in with the background paper colors. My final stamp is my title: Live Your Dreams. This photo is one I took of Aine during a trip to Tuscany last summer. I hope she does get to live out her dreams!

I hope you come play along with us this month at Visible Image
look forward to seeing your projects!!

This is a very pretty page. My favorite detail is the cute butterfly holding up one end of the banner.
