LAYOUT: Rhythm of OBX

I love these pictures, but it does make me wish for a better zoom lens! I caught the picture on the bottom left, before she was aware of me – and I would love to have more, because she was being herself – moving to her own rhythm. Hence the name of the layout! I used alcohol inks on the Maya Road / Luxe sheer letters so that they would be more subtle and not detract from the photos.



  • Creative Imaginations’ Art Warehouse Fresh collection papers, rubon and chipboard journaling spot
  • Paper Trunk big flower – I think from Jellybeen paper collection, sprayed with Patina Glimmer Mist
  • Maya Road Sheer Stoney Island letters
  • Alcohol Ink
  • Fancy Pants Felt (blue)
  • little silver charms and buttons (I love the little blue crab on bottom right)
  • Hero Arts blue and white crystals on the flowered paper.
  • Fabric swatch from my upholstery store in upper right

It makes me giggle every time I say OBX because after making one of my projects for the HGTV shoot featuring pictures from the Outer Banks, and the crew said, ‘What is OBX?’ I realized that this is one of those acronymese moments.  So for clarity, OBX stands for Outer Banks, as in the coast of North Carolina.

Clear as mud? :o)
