Bobby's Girl - This layout has a photo from 1961 which I discovered recently, when scanning some negatives. So lovely to have a photo of my dad and me together as he was usually behind the camera.
the Vicki Boutin 'Mariposa' paper I cut and distressed three strips
4.5cm x 27cm. These were placed vertically on the left of the page.
The photo was arranged in the centre, with a Doodlebug cupcake mini doily under the top right corner. I placed this upside-down to give a pale peach effect.
I placed the scalloped ribbon (self-adhesive) in a curve under the photo.
Three butterflies were cut from the 'Mariposa' paper and added to the page using 3D foam pads. I added some stamen to each butterfly to represent antenna and painted the large butterfly with Nuvo Glitter Drops.
In the bottom right corner of the photo I made a cluster with the large butterfly together with the metallic fern leaf from the kit and some wired crystals from my stash.
I used some Nuvo Crystal / Glitter Drops to add a trail from the butterflies. A few gems were added to the doily.
My title was cut from Arroyo Bazzill using alphabet dies. I found some old alphabet stamps to add the names and date.
Rock Star - Little Andrew loved sitting on this rock at our accommodation on holiday in Norfolk!
The base for this layout is the Vanilla Bazzill. I decorated this by splatting with several blue and green shades of Distress Stain.
Then with some stains applied to the craft mat and mixed with a little
water, I flicked a splattering of smaller drops and drips over the page.
I mounted both photos onto some of the Parakeet Bazzill and arranged them with two pieces of the 'Sunset' paper in the centre of the layout.
I stamped the title with Distress Paint and Tim Holtz, Type lower cling foam stamps.
I cut some more butterflies from 'Mariposa' paper and added these to the page. I had some Dusty Attic mini butterflies and mini dragonflies - I painted them with some Shimmering watercolours - Corney Flower Blue. I glued these onto the page.
Finally I cut fronds from more of the Parakeet Bazzill and just one layer from the Tim Holtz Sizzix Thinlits - Bloom Colorize die set.
Thanks for looking. Back with the June Kit soon.
