Yo Mama Loves Echo Park!!!

Many of you may not know, I am the co-owner of an online accessory boutique called A New Deja Vu. Recently I started adding little girl's tutus to our list of available products on etsy at

This week I invited the girls over to have a little fun with the tutus. I let them play around the yard in the garments and took some photographs for my etsy shop. I even caught them settled down long enough for a few posed shots. When all finished I realized these pictures were just too darling to not scrapbook and who better to turn to than Echo Park Paper!! I had the opportunity to go to Scrapfest this year at the Mall of America. The Echo Park table was definitely one of my favorite! Jody and Madison are always a hoot and a lot of fun to talk to and joke around with. (I actually ended up selling one of my tutus to Jody for his little girl!) This project was also just in time for Octobers Fresh Face Designer Campaign. I thought I might give it a go.

My first project featured many papers from their A Walk in the Park line. I loved the bright cheery colors. I wanted to pull in a few other things so I combined some pieces from other collections, such as For the Record. I thought the black accents brought out the tutu from the picture.

In order to get the splattered paint look on my page that mimics spray inks:
1)mix dime size amount of paint with a couple drops of water
2)load end of paint brush and flick towards page
It's that easy! Be sure to cover photos before flicking and cover work service. Paint drops can be slightly controlled but overall are unpredictable.

While I had my supplies out I decided to make one more project for my craft room.
