Thru Thick & Thin

BY & I have been married for 10 years, so I was trying to sift through my photos for us together.  Thanks to the many computer crashes, we don't have much! So I took one that we took at the start of the year when I got my iphone 4.  The photo had been deliberately made old and retro by an app and I thought it would be perfect for a 10 yr layout.

Combined with my interest in creating "dirty" layout (which had June laughing at me for liking dirty layouts), I did this vintagey, retroey, non fluffy layout.

I'm not a frequent user of rub-ons, but on this one I applied two different types to get the contrasting letters in the same height.  I also managed to get a number of rub-ons on my fingertips... haha!

I like that imperfect look. 

Materials : Papers - DCVW cardstock, K&Co patterned paper; Washi Tape; October Afternoon rub on letters; CatsLifePress stamp; Maya mists; Tattered Angels glimmer screens.


  1. Hi Alicia, wonderful take on Ed's Sketch and what a simple yet lovely layout :)

  2. Love the color palette you chose to use. I really like how you let the different ink patterns do all of the work for you. Nice photo too!

  3. Love the page!! I do spy patterned paper :)
