Once again I've got behind with blogging....and I vowed to be better this year...Oh well! 😉
I'm going to go out of sync with my projects today because I am going to share my #3 project made for the prompt challenge with my friends when I know I haven't shared #2 yet. This is because I am sooooo happy to have finished today's share.....it's only taken me nearly 7 years, lol, and it needs a post all of its own as it will be a bit photo heavy. I'll share project #2 and a few other things I've done in a day or two.
The prompt for #3 was People/Photos. I decided it was the perfect opportunity to create the scrap layout I started to plan for a favourite photo of our two beautiful granddaughters Alexa and Izzy about 6 years ago. The photo was taken at our daughter's wedding 7 years ago this coming May when they were both 3 years old. Izzy was 10 last December and Alexa will be 10 in March....where do the years go?
I don't have any step by step pics as I got carried away as usual and forgot to take any. I used some gorgeous papers from 7 Dots Studio designed by Finnabair as well as lots of her mechanicals metal pieces and yet more from my stash. There's some distressing and inking to the paper edges and a little stamping in the background.
Alexa on the left and Izzy on the right....just love their cute body language!
One of the things I learned from a Finn class was to use border punches just on small sections and I thought the butterfly one was very approriate. I also used a little flower one.
Collaged paper pieces, strips and other elements from the same paper collection. There are also a couple of lovely flourishes from Scrapinek that I heat embossed. Doubly pleased I am using my stash more and not just my stamps and colouring mediums.
Don't forget you can click the pics to see the details better.
I just loved their pretty dresses, quite different to the traditional bridesmaid.
The main arrangement of embellishments. I used a fair amount of Treasure Gold to highlight everything and confess I chickened out at using sprays. I was pleased with it as it was and didn't want to risk spoiling all that hard work squirting ink in the wrong place, lol! Maybe next time 😉
I love this little arrangement!
The teensy butterflies cut out by the border punch! I always use them.
I really enjoyed rooting about in my stash finding pieces to fit the puzzle and must try and do some more layouts.......
I couldn't resist a closer pic of those two little happy smiling faces!
Well this was definitely a doting Mamma post, lol! I hope there weren't too many pics and I promise my next post will have a lot less. Thanks for bearing with me and I'll see you again soon.
