Summer 2017 Album : Mullett Lake

We spent a lot of time outside and in the water this past summer and this album is certainly going to reflect that. This next spread I'd like to share out of my Summer Album is from a week-long trip we took at our friends home in Northern Michigan. Having a cottage up north is a huge goal / dream of ours (someday!), and we are very lucky to have friends we can stay and enjoy the water with.

This simple layout came together in just 20 minutes and one kit - the Summer Vacation Traveler's Notebook kit from the Kelly Purkey Shop. If I'm going to continue making progress on this album, quick and simple is always my way to go.

Naturally, the process video is short too - under 6 minutes! - so check it out if you'd like to see how this spread came together. The stamp set in this kit was really fun to play with and the cards will go a long way since I'm trimming them down to fit in my 3x4 pockets.

Getting brave and stamping on the dark water and sky in the large 6x8 photo didn't come without testing the white inks that I have in my stash. I print at home on an Epson printer with glossy photo paper and found the Brilliance Pigment Ink in Moonlight White was the best combo for a crisp clear image. I'm always giddy when I pull the block away and the entire stamp image is there and the ink dries nicely. Hooray!
