Isla | Inspiration by Crystal Bowman

Well, its about time I shared some more gorgeous layouts using Storyboard Kits!!  Crystal created these four gorgeous layouts using last month's kit "Isla".  Just love Crystal's trademark paint effects. I definitely need to try this technique out for myself!

For those of us that traditionally scrap 12x12, Crystal's layouts show you how to get out of that box!  Here, Crystal has used the My Little Shoebox scallop diecut as her background to great effect. If you're concerned about how this layout might sit in your album, just place a white sheet of cardstock behind.

Love how Crystal has added a calico bow with staples to this one. All the little pops of colour against the black and white photos and black paint make this layout something special.

During March (actually, on my birthday!), Crystal married her partner! Congratulations!!! Love that she created this sweet layout to document their special moment. Can't wait to see layouts using her gorgeous wedding photos.  Oh, and its not Crystal Bowman anymore, its Crystal Goulding...better go and update her profile pic!

I absolutely love the simplicity of this layout! Each element has been thoughtfully placed to compliment those sweet, sweet photos of Crystal's daughter.
Today's tip from Crystal...
To change up the look of plan calico, Crystal has tied the calico into a bow, then placed it into a snap lock bag.  Green mist was sprayed into the bag, and then scrunched together so that the bow would soak up the mist!  The end result is gorgeous!!

Stay tuned for more layouts...
Cheers, Lis.
