We’re on summer holiday and we’ve invited some of our friends to share their voices and projects here over the next 2 weeks. Say hello to Kelly Purkey:
Hello it’s Kelly Purkey here to share a spread from my Project Life book. This year I’m using a Sn@p! album and enjoying the smaller 6×8 size. The spread uses my August & September Project Kit from Simon Says Stamp, which makes it easy to come together.
I love the gold trend happening right now and can’t resist adding gold sequins to everything. My favorite way to incorporate a flash of gold is stamping with the Brilliance Pigment Archival Ink Pad in Galaxy Gold. It’s a great ink to use on photos and shows up nicely on darker photos. I print at home on semi-gloss paper purchased at Costco with an Epson printer.
The What I Wore card was made by printing out the photo twice to use as a mask. I then cut out my body to use as a mask for stamping on the second copy of the photo. The stamp comes from the Kelly Purkey Happiness Is set. It’s a fun way to add some stamp sentiments to your Project Life!
