I have scrapped this photo before in a wallet size. I love the French Riviera look of it and decided to use it again. i photographed it on an old weatherbeaten table top in my garden.
Erica from Your scrapbook Stash sent me Jillibean Soup to work with last month and I still have some more of it left. I have been stretching the papers by cutting away pieces where it can not be seen. Erica always sends me such awsome DT kits!!
I distressed all the edges and painted with white gesso along all sides as well as a little wearing and tearing.
I measured out the piece of cardboard I needed and even painted that. I had a round piece of pp that I cut away from my "Blue Eyed Boy" layout in the previous post.
I divided that in two and added the halves at each side, together with half of a doily.
I made a pleated flower, but I don't really like how the colour appears in this photo.It looks a lot better IRL. I added some of my new mulberry flowers that I bought off the Internet and some word stickers from the Jillibean sticker sheet.
The awsome little twig or swirl, I don't know what to call the beauty, is by Imaginarium Designs. They manufacture the most beautiful lazer cut chipboard shapes and are sponsoring us on the OUAS design team the whole year. How is that for GENEROUS!!!!?
If you want to buy the chipboards, or start by having a closer look at them,you go HERE to Seriously Scrapbooking.
I painted the chipboard with my white paint and added it to balance off my other embellishments. I even added some sweet pink half pearls to add more softness to my design.
Erica also sent me a sheet of white corrugated chipboards from Jillibean Soup. They are so pretty and versatile. I painted them with my green jenni Bowlin paint dabber from Your Scrapbook Stash and then inked them so they would show off more on the page.
I added some thin twine to a few buttons, and I think thats it really.....
Here are a couple of more close ups for you!
I actually love the combo of the pink with the green. I must do that again.
I hope you have enjoyed what I had to share today.
I would love for you to leave a comment if you are here.
Yesterday my blog had more than 200 hits which is almost a record for me. But I was so sad because I could not see where you came from and for several hours people could not comment. Seemed like commenting was part of a lottery!
From time to time I like to watch the Feedjit feed moving, buy mine did not move. Today it is a little better as at least one or two visits show up on the chart.....grr %%^>><!##4#¤ grrr...
I have spent literally hours too, trying to comment on beautiful submissions for OUAS with no help at all from Mr. Blogger!! Enough now!!
Hope it will be better tomorrow!
Thanks for visiting
