Happy Friday everyone! The weekend is here! Saturday night my daughter and her Fiancée will be out for their weekend [Sunday, Monday]. I love spending time with the fam! My daughter is getting married in August so there is always something to discuss! Head on over to Stuck on U Sketches and check out the other design team members work!
Today I want to share with you this lovely layout I did of my massage therapist daughter, Avery! Yes, I get my photos any way and any where I can!! lol This photo is taken by Personal Expressions Photography , a local photographer who does amazing work. I toned down the brightness of the yellow to go better with my papers.
I used Prima papers from their Fairy Flora line [love it] You can't see it in any of the photos, but on the yellow background paper I used a very fine glitter pen over top of the swirls. Trust me, IRL it looks awesome! The crystal flourish is by Prima as well.
This is the sketch we were given to work with, by Liz Qualman. Her blog My little Sketch Blookis really fun, and I did some Designer Guest work for her in 2010.
Here is a close up of the floral corner I made. The main flower I made using Tim Holtz's Tattered Floral die, white card stock, distress ink, distress stickles and puffy paint. The tiny bird with the kissing cherubs [look close] is a chippie by Tattered Angels that I bought when I first started scrapping because I loved the colors and shapes but had yet to use any. I had resigned myself that they would never be making it onto any of my layouts. Glad I could finally use some!
Don't you just love doilies? I find myself using them more and more! I've been lucky and been able to get them really cheap at my local thrift store. I got my Pink Paislee artisian elements and Smoock ink out and inked the edges in this nice blue that you can find in small accents through out the layout.
I used the same Smooch ink on the chipboard letters.
Here is another Tatter Angels chippie I got to use from the same collection, only this time its a dragonfly! I covered it in Rock candy distress stickles.
Ya'll come back now, ya hear? :)
