This is a Layout that I did for my Guest Design Project over at CS Designs this week. The details will follow:
My granddaughter KayLynn has been talking about having her hair cut for a very long time and she wanted to donate it to Locks Of Love. Well Friday was the day. My daughter and older granddaughter and I accompanied her to the hair salon. Here is how it went.
This is the ponytail going away.
Oh boy a hair wash just like the big girls.
Some trimming and a little layering...
And some blow drying( KayLynn wanted her to straighten it some)
She doesn't look that excited here but then I guess she never realized how much time it took to get a hair cut since she has never done it before.
The end product. Very cute and I can't wait to see what it will look like when she washes it and lets it go.
Okay so on to the Layout. I have been working with these Images from CS Designs and this is how it all came together. I will be making more flowers with these Expressive Hearts. I started with a photo of my two granddaughters and a gate that is from a SVG file by Treasure Box Designs. Let me just say that I love my Cricut and SVG files. While I'm on that subject let me just tell you that the flowers here are from a File by Fred She Said. There are a lot of SVG files out there so if you have a Cricut check into the Sure Cuts A Lot program. So much fun.
I used a Tim Holtz Mask on the base card stock and spritzed on 3 different shades of Perfect Pearls Mists.
So here is a close up of the 3 Flower Girls. I printed the faces on some W?C paper and colored them with my Copics, Printed two sets so I could cut the hair out and place it over the first layer with dimensionals.
The buttons in the centers of the other flowers are from my stash that I bought at the Button Show last week.
The green fabric flower and feathers are from a barrette that I found at a Farmers market for a dollar.
I love the little bling on the cheek.
I added some tiny pearls and rhinestones to some of the leaves. I hope you get some great ideas to try on your own projects.
