Two New Layouts

This is a Layout that I did for 52Sketches52Weeks for the week#19 challenge. If you haven't looked at this site, http://52sketches52weeks.ning.com/ , you really should. There is a Design Team call going on right now. I think I have to try again. Fingers crossed. Anyway I used Basic Grey Wisteria papers for this and I did some experimenting with some Golden Matt Medium on the background. I like the way it looks like wax. This is a photo I took of my nieces Megan and Caitie a few years ago in one of my photography classes. The gold paper at the top and bottom of the photo is cut from a gift bag from the dollar store as well as the butterfly, they come in packages of 6, how great is that? I die cut the flowers from some different mulberry papers and pattern papers and then added some Matt Medium with acrylics. I just love trying all different papers for flowers. Yum!

This is a layout I did for a Design Team project at Pages In Time http://pagesintimestoresite.ning.com/ You can find all the papers I used on this layout in the online store. These are papers from Little Yellow Bicycle and Stemma. First I distressed the background using the smooch and lift technique and then I used the negative of a Tim Holtz mask to outline the flourish and I used glitter paint and pink glitter to go with the other elements. This is a photo of Johanna and Kylie on their trip to Hawaii last week. My niece and great niece. Aren't they cute? And the background makes me want to go. Anyway I decided to add some silk flowers into the mis this tine and layer them with paper after I colored them with ink and some gel pens.

I used chipboard covered in DP and them put a coat of Mod Podge on it to make it shimmer. That baby just has the cutest little smile and the hat is to die for.

Have A Great Week.
