Hi folks! I thought I'd share the layout I made in the class taught by the talented Emilie Chamel on the Merly Impressions Retreat that I attended last weekend. I used a photo of my little Isabelle having just had her face painted at a friends birthday party.
I stamped some feathers, flowers and leaves (from the Elegance collection) straight onto some white cardstock which I splattered with distress stains and flicked with watered down acrylics. I created the feathers by painting some more white card, drawing leaf shapes and snipping in the feathered detail. The beautiful blossoms came in the class kit.
I die cut some Funky Foam for the title and added some AB crystals. These are really sparkly to the naked eye. I couldn't capture it too well in the photos but I filled in parts of the stamped images with glamour dust adding yet more sparkle (you can never have enough sparkle). I also stamped the butterfly again and added it as a decoupaged layer on top of the original butterfly on the top right of the page. Of course I added some pink sparkly gems to the butterfly too :)
I finished off the page some lovely pins given to me by my friend Linda, who put up with me sitting opposite her all weekend :)
Ciao for now!
