Hi everyone! I'd like to share with you my latest l/o! It is about my Great Niece, who was born 6 hrs after her Great Grandfather passed away. He was my hubbies Dad. It was a bittersweet day. The Lord giveth and the Good Lord taketh away. Blessed be the Name of the Lord!
I took a 10" white paper doily and inked it with Distress Inks. I used a flourish frame from Dusty Attics that I had gotten in one of my Swirlydoos kits and painted it with Antique Linen Distress Crackle Paint. I fussy cut the bird cage and the bird from some of my Webster's Pages paper, used my Heartfelt leaves stamp to make the leaves. I used some green distress ink as water color, with a paint brush. I created some curly tendrils with floral wire and tape. I made the flowers from white card stock using the flower tutorial I posted earlier.
In the top left hand corner I used some silk flowers I collect from some of my mom's flower arrangements after she passed away. Pink Paislee has these amazing embellishments called Artisan Elements, and I used 2 different pieces on my layout. Here, I used one under the the flower cluster and inked it with distess ink in Broken China and Vintage Photo.
In the top right corner I used a mask from Prima. I sprayed re-positional adhesive on the back and placed it on the paper and then used Distress ink in Antique Linen , with my blending tool. I placed white half pearls in the scallops of the doily.
I had photo copied a part of the background paper where the butterfly was and used Rock Candy Distress Stickles on it, giving it a nice aged look. I then glued on the body part over the butterfly in the background paper and adjusted the wings so it looks 3 demensional. I used another Artisan Elements ornaments and inked it in Aged Mahogany distress ink, and put the title in mini letters in the center.
Thank you for looking, and please leave a comment as I love to hear from you!
