I have had this layout finished for a few days now, but I am just now taking the time to share it. I needed a break from studying for an exam. It's Monday night, so wish me luck :)
Once again, I am participating in a sketch challenge with Creative Scrappers. I thought this layout would be perfect for some of my photos of my eldest stepdaughter dancing. I didn't get the great photos I was hoping for, and so I knew I would need to keep the images small.
Let's see: The black base cardstock came from Paper Temptress. I don't know where I found the shimmery white. The blue glitter cardstock that I used to emulate ribbons came from Michael's (I think -- don't quote me on that). I cut two strips of the cardstock, then cut one of those strips in two. Yes, one of the strips is thinner than the other. That was intentional. I then cut a little triangle out of the bottom of the three pieces. I'm going to have to remember that trick -- it works well when you don't like your ribbon choices.
The flowers came from Petaloo. I debated spraying them with some Tattered Angels mist, but ultimately decided I wasn't sure how that would turn out.
The butterflies are from Maya Road, and I painted them with a dark blue Silks acrylic glaze from Luminarte. If you love paint and/or shimmer, I recommend you try out Silks.
I am pleased with how my pictures turned out -- some things are actually in focus! I applaud those who are able to use an iPhone to create a great work of art. I don't think I will ever be one of them. Give me my DSLR any day.
