Birthday page without the "theme papers"

I love B&W photos.
They are so much fun to work with because everything goes
and reduces the clash of colors.
Isn't that owl adorable?? From a Halloween sheet that
I've been eking out and using sparingly.
 This adorable sticker came from Studio Calico I think
and when on some shopping spree found that cupcake.
Looks delish.
I did break out the die cut machine, punch and
fussy cut the "title".
 Love the arrows and shock upon shock
had that gray number that was 
 The Studio Calico number page really
helped making it a celebration page.
I have so much paper and none of it "themed" really
so it was kinda of neat to do DIY.
Sprayed some SC color theory around just do
do something different.
I hardly ever spray mists anymore,
mostly because my spraying is totally out of control. 

This is the third birthday for April - lots of grands in that month
and you got it - another one without a "theme paper"
coming up. If you check here another birthday page.

Really really old paper

I did go with the obvious here again especially
when I found this paper in my stash.
This is really really old stuff - Creative Imaginations,
Marrah Johnson design, Creative Cafe Tag which is really
more red in real life. 
I also broke out the die cut machine.
Love those feathers.
 I paired that 6x6 number paper from Studio Calico
with the striped transparency because 
it seemed like the thing to do.
Even those tabs are big die cuts from Quickutz
long time ago.
 The cuteness factor of this photo is above a level 10. 
He  has all the instruments he needs to lay down a track.
No doubt he'll rock it.
Both parents are musicians.

The perfect background paper

Happens to be an older collection of Shimelle
and its perfect for a mermaid.
And it turned out perfectly to go
with the photos.
Yesss...another multi-photo page.
This page is a loose take on one I saw from Eyoung.
She does such clean pages.
That I didn't copy LOL.
 Layers upon layers and no specific title really
and not a lot of journaling.
 And sequins because every mermaid needs sequins.
 I even layered the journaling tags - which
I can tell you I played around with for awhile.
For some reason and I don't need a reason - it just wasn't flowing right.
 It's too adorable however, that gap in the
middle is testing me.
I feel there needs to be some sort of connection
but since I can't think of one I'm
going to stick it in the album real quick before
the madness takes hold.
This is mostly Shimelle, with some Studio Calico
thrown in.
Bustin' that stash.

Banners and mixed media

I am really on a mixed media roll this week, here I
used molding paste and paint for the "stars" and
ink and stencils for the dots.
Of course the packaging technique came into play using
green and orange mists because I felt the brown and grey were too dull.
These are the photos I had in mind for Monday's page
that just didn't quite work out.
 For some reason I only mixed media half the page and felt the
bottom looked really plain - even with 3 photos so.....
banners. A mix of triangle and fishtail.
 I did get inspiration by watching a ton of Missy Whidden's videos.
I've been binging on videos since I got home.
She uses different mats for each photo.
I found I like that.
I did use a quite obvious title but hey
sometimes you just gotta roll
with it.
Studio Calico, Basic Grey, Paper Issues,
Tim Holtz and Crafters Workshop stencils.
