I was such a cute baby! Look at that hair-style.... I even continued this tradition with my own children, little mo-hawks. This is my last layout/project for the My Creative Scrapbook, Limited Edition Kit for February. What a wonderful feast of products I got to play with this month. You can find all kit information 'HERE', and the Limited Edition Kit information 'HERE'.
My Mother waited a long time for my arrival, she had many losses and often said to me, it was 'true love' when I arrived.
The background paper was just too pretty to cut into, so I opted to use it as my base, doing a little mixed media with paints and texture paste - a few splatters of Glimmer Mists, and ink to complete.
The trinket does have words inside, though very hard to photograph with the domed glass.
I used some small glass beads to highlight in 'trails' - almost resembling a bead spill, over the whole layout. I absolutely love this 'look' and you'll no doubt be seeing it a lot more in my work in time to come. My bead collection is calling my name! LOL
Fussy cut elements from other papers in the kit, became flowers - again filled with tiny glass beads.
Corrugated board and me are best friends, and I adore teaming it with beautiful patterned papers - paint works wonderfully, ink just loves soaking into the edges giving an aged appearance without much effort. I have more ideas for cardboard.....mmmm
Well that is it for me for this month in my projects/creations for My Creative Scrapbook. Soon another month will be here, and another kit or two to highlight.
