It seems I cannot really get back into my routine of everyday chores + scraping and blogging.
I haven't done any 12x12 page for while but have a pile of never posted pages done while ago. I would like to share 2 of them with you today. I did them just before going on the summer holiday, they are similar in design and use some of very old and some of new stash as well.
Ok, I know we are approaching Christmas and everybody had forgotten about Easter so far, but I was doing kind of stash 'clearance' and those spring style MME papers were perfect for the Easter photos, they also go well with kraft card that I just bought at the time and my raffia flowers that I was in a mood of making. I have few more sheets of these MME papers and I just want to use them up. I toned down the paper using white acrylic paint and dry brush technique.
Little birdies are stamps; Hero Arts (the birdie) and Technique Tuesday (owls), coloured them with promarkers, added gloss on top and little gems to highlight the eyes. Ribbon is by the Webster pages and punches are Fiskars and Martha Stuart. The title is hero Arts stamps and Sizzix dies, love this bigz dies as I can make my own chipboard letters with them - I pained them first, then applied clear cracked paint- love this stuff. And one close up:
This page is special to me because it was probably our last egg hunt which both kids enjoyed equally. This year's was disaster as the big girl (DD1) who is 11 was looking for something far more exiting and for the little one was too complicated and all ended up in tears, I did not even take any photos.
Second page, uses similar design:
I was trying to take a passport photos of my DD2, and it all took us 3 photo sessions and lots of photos taken untill we got something where she wouldn't be making faces or smiling or laughing.
Again I used kraft card that I just got at the time and stamped it on the left hand side with my brand new butterfly script background Hero Arts stamp and distressed it with the Ranger stain. The papers and paper flowers are from one of Papermania goody bags and fabric flower is hand made using the Webster pages netting. Title is stamped using Autumn Leaves and Hero Arts stamps. Borders are Martha Stuart punch and small craft tonic square punch used with border system to make a 'film'.
This is all for now. Thank you for reading my blog and all kind comments.
