I like to fill the page when I scrap!! Lots of papers, lots of layering, and, of course, lots of distressing!! So to do a challenge that calls for negative space is a little outside my comfort zone! But I think I was able to accomplish . . . even to my liking! lol
I sprayed glimmer mist on the background from one corner to another diagonally. I then added added the strip of paper with the hot air balloon and words on it. I put a transparency over the pic so the focus would be on my new (and first) great-nephew! I then added some little stickers, a couple prima flowers and a button. The stickers, papers and even punched border are all from Simple Stories Baby Steps Collection. It is so pretty and can be used for boys and girls! Lots of birds and owls in the collection also! I like it so much that I might be willing to leave some negative space more often!! Hope you enjoy and thanks for looking!
