Just a Pretty Face?

Happy Monday! We have a new challenge for you up on the Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge blog.

From face stamps to the face of a clock, cameos to silhouettes – this week we challenge you to be inspired by a face of some kind.

I was inspired by a fun Crafter's Workshop stencil to scrapbook a page about my oldest daughter. Here, I have gathered my supplies...
 First up, let's get some faces on our background using some Distress Ink and a Foam Blending Tool...
 Oh, I LOVE that! Look how fabulous that looks with her peeking out from behind the cloud... yay!
 With all my faces stenciled on, it's time to see where the real star of this show will live:
Layering up some papers...

This is one of my favorite page compositions. I love the visual tension and balance created by having one large stack of layers and the photo on one side of the page, along with a smaller stack on the opposite side of the page...
Now that I pretty much have my basic design down, I want to highlight some of that stencil work with my white Signo pen...
 Ah yes! Likey so...
A few more embellishments added...
And a cute little umbrella never hurt anything...
And there she is! My darling girl...
So much more than just a pretty face!

Now it's your turn! I can't wait to see how you interpret this challenge.

Go get crafty and link-up with us! Every week a random winner is chosen to win a $50 spending spree from
