Happy Easter weekend!! This week's Designer Challenge: Focus on Product - shimmer and shine! Use cardstock, paints, stickles, glitter glue, whatever you can think of to add shine to your projects this week! Shine on!!!!
This week's palette is really soft and girly, almost too easy to make something that is OTP sweet. This is miss T whom some of you have made acquaintance with before. The little doll that she's holding in her lap is her cousin's daughter W. The photo was taken last summer at a family do and because it was a special day of celebration, miss T was allowed to wear lipgloss again (shimmer, see!).
White cardstock, the punched pale blue paper is from Girl's Paperie and misted in TA Gold, Shimmerz Concrete and then chalked in 3 different blue hues. Too bad it only shows IRL.
I stitched a narrow blue satin ribbon over a blue/white checkered cotton ribbon which I then mounted on a strip made of punched white cardstock (EK Success) and cut-out strip of dotted pink paper from Girl's Paperie. That's the frame that goes around the whole page.
The centre floral pp in the cirlce is Prima Botanical (peach), mounted on white cardstock misted with TA Vintage Pink, chalked in Victorian Velvet and Ash Rose before I cut the edge in scallops to mimic the PP Artisan Elements. Matted with a white paper doily. Pale blue liquid pearl is dotted around the outer cirlce of the Artisan Element and a bow made of the both ribbons mounted with a stacked button of blue/white. The birdcage is Girl's Paperie (shimmering little jewel hanging from the bottom).
I also decorated a large white button with a peach rose and a pink one with white liquid pearl dots around the rim and a small peach bloom as can be seen at the very bottom. I mounted them on b/w stencilled floral circles and sticky padded them for added height.
The photo itself is triple matted in white, peach checkered Graphic45 Spring Fairy, and the same pink dotted pp as in the frame, then stitched. Gesso is then applied throughout the whole page for added shabbiness. Pink printed chippie letters are from the same Girl's paperie line as all the other products used, Whimsy.
Thank you so very much for having a peek at my page and any comments that you may want to lave are infinitely appreciated! xx
Hello and welcome to my little corner of the world! My name is Eila Sandberg and I live in Sweden's capital called Stockholm on the east coast by the Baltic Sea. My family is a small one; it's me and my very supportive and patient husband and our 3 cats - Max, Alice and Elsa. I have a grown-up stepdaughter. My friends kindly let me scrap their children if I need willing guinea pigs for a layout. My roots are Finnish but I was born and raised in Sweden. I am an Anglofile and love everything beautiful, London is my favourite city in the whole world. I've been sort of dabbling with scrapping since 2009 but more seriously so since 2010. Scrapping is a wonderful way for me to gain balance and happiness in my otherwise very stressful office life, I scrap mainly 12 x 12 layouts. Thank you for visiting my blog! Your comments make me very happy!
