Two "Adventurous" Layouts using the {Let's Get Lost} Classic Kit

Hello Noel Mignon Friends!!!  This week the design team is working with the "Let's Get Lost" kits and creating "adventurous" layouts.  I am working with the Classic Kit

Today I'm sharing 2 layouts of pictures of my son back from 2011.  We were playing and fishing in the mountains.  I have quite a few layouts from this day, and I have so many pictures, so I didn't need to include jounaling on every single layout.  But I did want to try to fit as many pictures as possible on a few pages.  The "Let's Get Lost Kit" was perfect for these photos, this is what I came up with...

For this first layout, I used the Fancy Pants "Teal Dot" paper as the background.  I only used one more scrap of patterned paper on this layout, the chevron patterned paper by Pink Paislee.

I used a combination of an arrow stamp with blue ink,  a "+" stencil with watercolors, and some of the Heidi Swap "Ocean" Color Shine splattered on the Teal Dot background paper to create an interesting canvas.  I also used a little white acrylic paing under my title and the date to allow those to pop and not get lost in the background.  

I created my title with a combination of the glitter Thickers and a few stamps from my stash.  I added a few cork stickers to the title as well. 

I used one of the flair pieces and a cork sticker from this month's kit to embellish the 4x6 photo on the page. 

I used the canvas banner, a date stamp, another cork piece, and one of the glitter Thickers to embellish the bottom corner of my layout.  

The second "adventurous" layout that I made with the Let's Get Lost Kit is also packed with photos.  I used a "We R Memory Keepers" patterned paper as my background, and matted the entire layout on another "We R Memory Keepers" paper.

Again, I had so many photos, that I didn't need to use much more than a few scraps of the patterned papers from the kit.  I did pull the green gingham scraps from an older Noel Mignon kit. I matted all of the photos with the Kraft paper that came in this month's kit.

I used a glitter Thicker's phrase for my title "Let's Go!".

I fussy cut a few shapes from some various patterned papers in this month's kit to create embellishmnets.  I loved the Bingo card that came in the kit, so I made sure to use it here too!  My favorite part of this layout was when I realized our city "Tucson" was on the map paper!!!  It was very close to the edge but I HAD to stitch a little red heart around it.  It still looked a little bit lost, so I added some blue ink all around the heart to bring a little more attention to it.  I absolutely love this little area of the page! You can see the heart in the photo below.

Thank you so much for visiting today!  Check back on the blog all week to see other "adventurous" layouts by the rest of our creative design team.  We would love to see your work on Instagram #NoelMignon
