Stephanie's Love

Hello Bloggers

Stephanie explains her take on the sketch using her daughter's photo & explains:


'Meg’s Garden is sponsoring Once Upon a Sketch this month and I did this layout as a Guest Designer using their sketch for February 2013. I love this “French Bird Cage” paper from Meg’s garden and the colors are perfect for doing a layout about love since February is the month of “Love”!

I did some fussy cutting of the 4 x 12 strip of this paper which I added to the top left corner of the paper and then one small piece peeking out from the flower cluster. Under the photo I added a doily from my stash witch I also added some pink rosebud and leaf trim to around the outer edge of the doily. I then laid the photo down. In my flower cluster I used one of the White Gardenias from Meg’s Garden. The two pink flowers are ones I handmade which I added a bit of glossy accents to and then dipped them in some Diamond dust .

I took one of the Recollections flourishes I had in my stash and cut that into a few pieces and laid it on the layout as shown.  I printed my journaling out on some pink cardstock and then cut that up to glue down onto the right side of the photo. I cut my title out using my Cricut machine. I distressed all the edges of the 12 x 12 paper and on the bottom I ripped the paper down a bit, rolled the 2 sides of the tear back, added a small piece of pink paper behind the tear and added one of my handmade rosebuds to the tear. TFL!'

What a gorgeous layout - love the embellishing & the pretties along with your daughter in an animal print.  Well done Stephanie.

Bye for now
