Thursdays with Tombow!! I Confess My Love With Turquoise!!

I think I speak for all the scrapbookers and crafters out there when I say that most of the time the projects or layouts we make are for other people. We work so hard to tell all the stories about our children and family that we often forget about ourselves. Once in a while we should make a page about ourselves, that way when future generations see them they can get an idea of  who we were. I am the first one to run away from a camera, always behind them, never in front of them, 
but I HAD, not wanted, HAD to take a picture of myself.  *cough* Tombow made me *cough* 
Since it came out pretty decent I made a layout about
 things I currently love.  This week we had to use turquoise, one of my favorite colors!!

These octagons are from the 
George and Basic Shapes Cartridge.
What did I told you yesterday about this doodling style?! Loving it!!
  After I gather all my supplies for a layout I start by matting
 the picture, but instead of using just white cardstock, I used Tombow's  Dual Brush Pen to draw some stripes and then added the photo to do some doodling around it.

I used the Eye Stamp from Tim Holtz to replace the "I".
I felt the need to put the Love on something otherwise it looked wrong, like it was floating and I used a doily. 
The word is from the Create A Critter Cartridge. This beautiful swallow is from the Indie Art Cartridge and both
 were made with K and Company Paper. 
I used the Mono Multi Liquid Glue Fine Tip to apply the black layer, which worked awesome because I didn't made a mess with the glue and it looks really clean.  

In the bottom of the picture I made like a word collage 
of the things I currently like.  

This is one of my favorite Cricut Cuts EVER!! 
Is a cassette from the Indie Art Cartridge. 

This is a gorgeous Tim Holtz Stamps, one of my favorites too!! 

For the gluing the rope I used the Mono Aqua Liquid Glue, since it dries completely clear you won't notice the glue. I also spiced it up with some bling and brads I made with my I Top.
I made some embellishments with my Spirograph 
I love to make these, they are so fun!!  

In the center of this one I used an embellishment I made 
with my Epiphany Crafts Tool on a Vintage Setting.
I added the I Love that I made on my Label Maker because I printed it out a few days ago and didn't use it and it was just lying around and I felt that it looked good on the layout.

I added staples in each side of the rope and I made this rose and misted with my world famous home made mist. 
I kinda wished I had used more mist.

More octagons on this side. 

Look at all that dimension!! I love my Tombow Foam Tabs
Almost all of the embellishments were glued with the Mono Multi liquid Glue or my Stamp Runner Dot Adhesive.

Remember to say Hi! at the Tombow Blog

I hope you love my loving project!!

Hermoso trabajo, me encantan los colores. Es la foto te ven muy bonita. Los stamps están bellos y me gusta mucho que hayas usado elementos retro como el cassette con elementos delicados como el doily y la flor hand made. Hermosa creación.
