Beauty 12x12 Layout.
Most of you know by now I am moving at the end of the month to Nevada. I should have packed up all my craft stuff by now but we ran out of boxes. :p (that is my excuse for right now anyways) I was trying to clean up my desk last night and I could not stop thinking about this gorgeous paper. The Prima Nature Garden. I HAD to create something with it.
I created this layout for the March Sketch over at Once Upon A Sketch
I used the Nature Garden paper along with some embellies from the collection as well. I used some gorgeous lace from Wild Orchid Crafts along with some flowers. I used some Lindys to color the flowers silver and black. I sprayed the Prima vine with Lindys as well. I used a Crafters Workshop mask to paint the bricks. I painted them in a creme then put a crackle paint over. I also did the same with the clock die cut. I used some grunge flowers that I got from Jules in the cameo album set. They are so perfect to slip in for some layering. The doily on the left is from my friend Miranda. I also did a little bit of fussy cutting. The sketch was super fun but I had to twist it a little bit hehe!!
This brought me out of my comfort zone as one of the requirements is to journal. Most of you know that i do not journal. Ever! lol. But I Journaled on the back. It basically is saying how much I miss her when she was a newborn and I already miss her as she is now. If that makes sense lol. I am not sure why I don't like journaling. Doing the hidden journaling i think is the best and then i won't regret not doing it later. As you can see I have horrible handwriting and i am a horrible writer too.
If you have any questions please feel free to ask.
