Today we have a layout made by Mahlin Wiggur.
I love that she used the Ocean Vintage Double Dot,
It makes her layout POP!!

 The quote on the layout translate to: 
" As long as you have your training wheels you fly away with such speed. "
 Designer tip:
"I like edge distressing and layering my papers and I don´t worry especially if I get the paper torn. 
I just make it a part of the distressing. I also like to fold and crumple the edges a bit extra for 
that little extra dimension. 
 I use both mist (which i splash onto my layout with the nozzle, tapping it firmly) and gesso. A great thing is that you can distress your gesso by wiping it carefully with a baby wipe."
Patterned Paper:  Stripe, Dot, Bounty, Afternoon/Apple Cider
Double Dot Paper: Ocean Vintage
Petals:  Apple Cider
Trinkets: Apple Cider
Jewels: Apple Cider
Combo Sticker: Little Miss

Isn't this layout fun!!  I bought some Gesso and have played with it a little
in an art journal, but haven't used it on a layout yet.  I think Mahlin has
inspired me to try it...  How about you guys?   


  1. love all the yummy distressed layers...beautiful colors too!

  2. This is gorgeous! I just bought some Gesso too. Mahlin makes it look so easy to do. She's encouraging me to try it!

  3. Wow, this is a super layout and the colors are so vibrant. ( I really have a hard time reading the word verification...this is my 4th try)
