CREATE BEAUTIFUL THINGSGetting one final entry in for this month - it's been a very busy, crafty weekend!!! I wanted to try to enter the White... with 1: May Challenge: Raspberry Wine blog challenge. I love the concept behind the White... with 1 blog, and the Raspberry Wine would force another girly page out of me.
To add a bit of extra dimension to the background, I stencilled some Whipped Spackle through the TCW Mini Butterfly Collage, focussing on the splotches and cup rings.
I had won some flowers by Green Tara in a blog challenge recently. I used my Melon Mambo reinker to ink up the bottom layer of the white flowers, and to edge the petals on the top layer as well.
To add interest to the pink photo mat behind my photo, I used the offcut strip from my 12x12 white card base and added two strips behind the photo, at about the height of my daughter's face in the photo. This has the effect of drawing the eye into that part of the photo. With such a cute little face, why wouldn't you?!!
I made a bow with some ribbon, and then also put a length of ribbon through a ribbon-glider brad. I had covered the brad with patterned washi tape first, and also put a strip of the same washi tape alongside the length of ribbon.
For a final touch, I randomly scattered some Kaisercraft Epoxy Dots, and then added my title "CREATE BEAUTIFUL THINGS" FROM THE Cosmo Cricket 'Tiny Text' stickers.
I've loved how this page came together this afternoon, and it's nice to have cause to create a girly page every once in a while!
