Mixed Media Layout - Will love you FOREVER

Hey, hello!

I'm so excited for becoming an auntie that I couldn't help myself and made a layout with one of the first ultrasounds of the baby. It is amazing how it can be seen that there is already a tiny human being of 47.5 mm in there!! And moving arms and legs as dancing... 😍

Hey, hola!

Estoy tan emocionada por convertirme en tía que no he podido evitar hacer un layout con una de las primeras ecografías del bebé. Es alucinante como puede verse que ya hay una persona diminuta de 47.5 mm ahí!! Y moviendo sus bracitos y piernas como si bailara... 😍

It wasn't easy to choose an appropriate paper for this layout... I didn't want anything too childish, too obvious, too flashy... but either too plain or dull. I finally found and old BoBunny Christmas paper that was perfect. I added color with Lindy's Magical Shakers, and as my sister loves rainbows I made it super colorful and happy. This baby is a blessing for the whole family. 

No fue fácil elegir un papel apropiado para este layout... no quería nada muy infantil, muy obvio o muy llamativo... pero tampoco muy simple o soso. Al final encontré un viejo papel de Navidad de BoBunny que era perfecto. Añadí color con los Magical Shakers de Lindy's y como a mi hermana le encanta los arcoíris, lo hice súper colorido y alegre. Este bebé es una bendición para toda la familia.

I added some texture with transparent texture paste and a stencil full of little stars that looked almost invisible until they absorbed the color creating a magical effect; I also stamped some little bees here and there. Then I laid some leftover scrap papers form different baby collections by Fabrika Decoru and the ultrasound on top. You can click the photos to see them bigger and see details.

Añadí un poco de textura con pasta de textura transparente y un stencil lleno de estrellitas que eran casi invisibles hasta que absorbieron el color creando un efecto mágico; también estampé unas abejitas aquí y allá. Entonces superpuse unos restos de papeles de bebé de colecciones de Fabrica Decoru y la ecografía encima. Puedes pinchar en las fotos para verlas más grandes y apreciar los detalles.

I made my own chipboards with my Silhouette and during the process I realized this project was perfect for February's More Than Words Challenge!!! So besides the circle with "life happening", I cut out a FOREVER too. Then added some hearts here and there with a stamp, chippies and even a badge! 

Hice mis propios chipboards con la Silhouette y durante el proceso me di cuenta de que este proyecto era perfecto para el reto de febrero de More Than Words Challenge. Así que además del círculo con el "life happening", corté un FOREVER también. Después añadí corazones aquí y allí con un sello, maderas e incluso un pin!

It just needed some little details, but not too much stuff cause I wanted the ultrasound to be the focal point. Just some tiny flowers, sequins and big glitter points. And to make it complete, I glued the sentences. I have to say my sister loved it when I gave it to her. 💕

Sólo necesitaba unos detalles para terminarlo, pero no demasiadas cosas porque quería que el centro de atención fuera la ecografía. Flores, lentejuelas y unos puntitos de purpurina grande. Para completarlo, pegué las frases. He de decir que a mi hermana le encantó cuando se lo di. 💕
