The picture is of my older sis just a few hours after she was born....It will be framed and I will give it to her as a Christmas gift. I used Plaid paints....Apple Barrel Bubble Gum and FolkArt Metallic Sequin Black. I distressed all the paper edges with the paints. Do you like the little vintage birth certificate? I used it as a background paper and added a little miniature version to the layout....I added my sister's info in my PhotoImpact program.
I love the way this flower turned out... It was created with the leaf in A Child's Year. I stretched the leaf cut in DS and cut 12 separate petals all the same size and then just put them together with pop dots. I added both paint colors...dry brushing the edges with the black and added stickles....The Prima in the center and the others on the page were all painted to match the layout. Stop by and see Kristine at Your Memories here for these wonderful Prima flowers...she is having a sale right now, all of her Bind It All products in stock are 40% off!!!!
These precious little leaves were cut with Lyrical Letters. The butterflies were made by cutting them from Indie Art from transparencies. I added the black outlines with permanent marker and then painted over the marker with pink. On the front I added some pearl paint and stickles....I will be using these lots more I am sure. The mat is a card cut from ACY with some pearl paint accents. The punch is MS....the doily punch.
Buttons and bling...you can never have to many of those......
The miniature birth certificate with a button, charm and little prima and the lace is from WM. I also added some black fiber tied around the flower.
Hope on over to Practical Scrappers to see all the fun projects created with paints....you wont be sorry...and visit Kristine for some wonderful scrappy deals....hope you liked it.....if you would be interested in a tutorial on the flower or butterflies let me know....I'm thinking of doing one on both.....Thanx again to Practical Scrappers for the honor of being a guest designer on their site....I truly am a practical scrapper so this was such a thrill for me.
