This girl has STYLE...

I am not sure exactly at what point my daughter began her fashion sense. I would love to say that she gets it from me, but let's be real here... she has barely seen me in anything but jammies and jeans since she was born.

I guess it is just the girl in her. In this picture she has quite a few things going on. She was wearing a bright printed tunic, with this leopard print hat and she had just had her adorable face painted. But even with all of this going on... this face is simply her and just so cute!

Here is the layout that I did for my Guest Designer Spot over at Couture Cardstock in full, I re purposed a frozen pizza insert for the circle. I then drenched it in Marshmallow Glimmer Mist and added some Tinsel Town Glimmer Glam for that added POP. together this really made the cardboard circle look like pressed metal.

You can see here that the Prima pearl and flower swirls were painted with Oil Slick Glimmer Glaze. I just love the look of these black roses.

Here is a close up picture of one of Heidi Swapp's new Custom Cut out tags that was Glimmer Misted with Frozen Lake and then glammed with Chandelier Glimmer Glam. The trim around the circle is silver sting of pearls from a craft store.

I TOTALLY LOVE THIS! This is some white rosette ribbon that I found at Hobby Lobby. I glimmer Misted it with Turquoise Blue and Sapphire Glimmer Mist and then added a hint of Tide Pool Glimmer Glam for that little added sparkle. You can see the glitter on the netting. I LOVE this!!!!
And well what over the top layout wouldn't be complete with a feather? LOL. I had these feathers left over from Halloween and put them to good use here. Well one to good use, I mean anything more and this layout would have been gaudy! (-I say this in jest... I know... I am gaudy with about most I do...but I embrace it!-)

And tucked on top of glimmer misted party crepe (I sewed a seem down the middle to gather the crepe) is this gorgeous title in the brand new Heidi Swapp Gothic Alphas. These have a resist on the letters that make a nice two tones effect when you use an art medium over them. I used Cinder Glimmer Mist which is a beautiful pitch black with a blue glimmer.
I know... As if this layout didn't have enough going on... I added lace to the black background. This is that gathered lace that you buy by the spool (the kind that looks like a lace ruffle) This made a nice frame around the center of the layout and since the center of the layout is circular, the lace circled the layout nicely. I just sewed down the frame of the black cardstock and trimmed the excess lace off.

And last but not least... this gorgeous bloom flanks the right side of the page. I created the base of this flower in a video I did for the Wear Your Adhesives on the outside" Blog Hop. The center is Prima Crystals that I assembled with my Crafty Power Tape.

I know this layout is a bit much, but I can't help but love the vibrancy of color and texture that it has. So many things going on with this layout, but they all make me smile...

Thanks for stopping by today :)
