Sweet Child Of Mine...







Here is another fun layout using my March Bad Girls Kit. I have been meaning to post all of the pics, but I wasn't sure exactly when I would be able to post them, so here I am...posting them now... better late than never... I will add the rest as I go (I think I only have a few left).
This Layout is of my sweet child. Although she may look like daddy, her fiesty spirit is all mommy. I say right she says left, I say here she says there... She is argumentative, but in a good way, she keeps me on my toes and well I love every minute of it because she reminds me of when I was young. I only hope that her independent spirit remains and that this world will embrace her strength.
The technical scoop:
For this layout I took the box that my kit came in a cut out a 12x12 piece of it, I then ripped and tore it to get my fun corregated look. I gesso'ed it with a paint primer and continued to layer my favorite colors of Glimmer Mist onto it, from there I inked the edges and brushed some fun colors of stickles along for a little sparkle (this is what I love to call the girly grungification of cardboard). I exacto'd out the frame to the Prima Flirty Little Secret paper and cut out hand drawn leaves and hearts to decorate my page. The flower is flanked with paper that I misted with glimmer mist, folded in half and cut fine slits into so that it framed the flower and added some much needed fluff around the flower (well the flower really didn't need the fluff, but I love the contrast of textures). Lastly, and seriously the coolest trick ever... I applied green stickles to the tops of the Prima Say It In Crystals, with the crystal on the bottom, it adds depth to the stickles and makes them look like set rhinestones.
Well I hope this has given you some ideas for you next project, I definately feel like a mad scientist sometimes...sitting in my scraproom...concocting schtuff.
