I don't know how your weather is where you live, but here in the Pacific NW we have been having some very grey and RAINY days. It poured all day yesterday and today seems to have the same theme. This weather makes me long for some sun and spring flowers and happy colors. So if I can't have the real thing, why not create it on my own? The My Mind's Eye Ooh la la for Her line was perfect for this layout. I started with one of the XL Deco shapes as my base.
Then traced the shape onto the polka dot paper and cut out inside of my lines with my pinking shears, inked up the edges and applied it to the Clear Scraps page. Measured out the green polka dot page and the turquoise paper behind the ribbon and applied those. Put my photos on next. Next, I cut out all of the circles for that fun border, fold the side edges of the circles up and line them all up. Creates a really fun dimensional border that shows of both sides of the paper. Now the white card stock page I created on my own using floral stamps, Copic markers, Spica markers and buttons. Adhered that slightly over lapping the circle border and popped it up a bit with pop dots. Used Scor-Tape for the strips of glitter. Sewed down my ribbon (yes through the Clear Scraps, it works great!) TIed my bow and embellished with a button and rhinestone. Added my journaling and Thickers title and there you have it. Something to make the days around here brighter!
Here are some close ups...
Oh and the last thing that I did was to outline the edge of the XL Deco shape with a ZIG painty pen.
THanks for stopping by!
