Hello NY - layout for SG CREATE Magazine July 2015 issue

Hi everyone!! For today I thought I'd share my first project for the July issue of CREATE Magazine. This layout was created for the product challenge using the awesome Shimelle collection, a TCW stencil and Heidi Swapp color shine and Studio Calico's Mister Huey's color mist:

The challenge was to use a stencil (or mask) in an innovative way on a traditional layout. For my layout I chose a stencil with a map of the subway and used four different colors to mist. The photos are from our vacation in New York in 2011.

And a few close-ups:
