Using the Curvy Cutter Circle template, cut a circle, 10"-11", out of one of the 12"x12" pieces of cardstock.
Trim 3" from one side of the circle.
Place the stencil on the circle, and rub Gelatos Colors across the top in a dark shade (Grape or Boysenberry). Most of the Gelatos Colors will stay on the stencil, and that is okay.
With the stencil still in place, use a foam blending tool to rub in the color. Remove the stencil.
Use a lighter shade of Gelatos (Cotton Candy or Blueberry) to draw onto the edges of the circle and rub in the color. Continue to add color and blend until you fill in the circle. Keep adding color and blending until you like the look.
Add a darker color of Gelatos around the edge of the circle and blend in.
Cut 3" long strips from the paper scraps to use for journaling.
Attach the large circle to the second piece of cardstock.
Trim three of your photos to 4"x4". Line them up and adhere along the side of your page.
Add the fourth photo to the circle. Adhere journaling strips.
Create your page title using Thickers™ chipboard.
