'My Beautiful Girl' for Inkido/Sizzix

 Today I have a sweet page to share that I made for both the Sizzix and Inkido design teams. The pictures were taken the other evening at the nearest beach and I decided to convert them to black and white. I love working with black and white photos because they blend in so well with the coloured papers and embellishments. They match with everything!

I primed my 'Beautiful Memories' paper with gesso and a little mist using a stencil as well for added texture.

I cut two large circles using decorative scissors and stitched them to my paper. With a paintbrush I added gesso diluted with water to tone down the background music pattern. It could esily look very busy. I cut and embossed a smaller circle and used it as a mat for my two photos.

I made these gorgeous flowers in two sizes with the Tattered Florals die set that I love. It is just soo good for when you need some flowers to tone in with your papers.

I made my flower clusters tying in a swirly chipboard piece and also a light blue lace ribbon rosette.

I fussy cut some pretty butterflies from a matching patterned paper using the Susan's Garden Tool Kit which has become one of my absolute favourites to use when I craft.
All the tools in the kit are really very useful!

I love the texture added by the sweet handmade blooms made with Inkido papers.
-And being the same collection they are a perfect match!

Here you can see I layered different mediums too.
-Diluted gesso, modeling paste through a stencil and Prima Color Bloom mist.
