Beautiful by Vicky


Vicky explains her layout of her very pretty daughter:

'This is a picture of my daughter on her first birthday. Everything on this layout with exception to the chipboard came from Meg's Garden Store. The beautiful are from the "Forget Me Not" and "Le Belle Jardin" collections. I just love how you can mix and match the collections so well.

Here is a close-up of the peek-a-boo lace (great way to use my Green Tara lace scraps!) and the  chipboard title. I used white distress crackle paint and then smudged light yellow and brown chalk ink to give the cracks and edges some definition. See how the papers look hand stamped - so gorgeous!

Here is a close-up of the beautiful blooms and corner vines. I primed the chipboard with gesso and used a few green and brown inks to polish it off. It really makes the delicate white blooms stand out don't you think?'

I agree Vicky, it does make the white blooms stand out .  Your layout is so beautiful - well done!

Bye for now
