So, my AWESOME layout I showed on Wednesday is properly photographed and ready to show!

I distressed my 12" x 12" background paper first.  Then I used stencils, bubble wrap and inks for interest.  I cut a 10" x 10" piece of cardboard and covered it with sewing pattern tissue paper.  I stitched the background papers together.  Next, I added more stencils and inks to the center of the background.  Then,  I stamped my Prima Doll Stamp on ivory cardstock and colored her in.  I fussy cut her out and attached her to the center with foam dots.  I stamped the sentiment and the border around it, fussy cut it out and attached it with gel medium.

 Now for the FUN part!  Decorating your piece!  I love adding the details!  Here is a close up of the lower left corner.  I sprayed the wood embellishments with white spray ink, made some rolled paper roses, and added a yellow flower.  Do you see the hints of spray ink droplets?  Or the bits of the stenciling?  I LOVE that!!

The upper left corner was much whiter so the cranberry ink I used to stencil with really shows!  I sprayed the wood butterfly embellishments white and added some crystal swirls.  I think there should always be swirls of some kind with butterflies!  The wood leaf finished this area up nicely.

Thanks so much for visiting!  Have an awesome day!!
