So theres an AMAZING challenge going on over at MY CREATIVE SKETCHES! I usually never participate in many challenges outside of Scrapbook.com, but this one was wayyyy to awesome to pass up! Check out the details with the link I posted!
Here is the challenge sketch:
Here is my take on the sketch:
I love the way this page turned out. I was going for a vintage shabby chic look and I'm pretty sure I aced it! It has such a romantic feel to it! The photo is of my my middle daugher, and honestly IRL the shadow on that photo doesn't seem that dark. The background paper is from some of my, My Minds Eye stash, I used embroidery floss to stich around the edges and then used scissors to grunge up the edges, which happens to be one of my new fav techniques.
Don't you just love that look!
Aren't thos flowers GORGEOUS! To my surprise I went to Walmart the other day and they all this new scrapbooking stuff, ColorBok brand I believe. These flowers were fussy cut from a page that was in one of the paper pads that I bought. The swirls were also from Walmart off the $1 rack! The butterflies were handstamped and I cut them out. Here you can see some of the details of the stitch work I did. The 'love' title was fussy cut from a Webster's Page's Hollywood collection, I love the look it gave the page!
Here is a gorgeous close up of more of those beautiful flowers I fussy cut! You can also see the lace deatils, I am obsessed with lace these days I can't get enough of it! The butterfly is another that I stamped and cut out! I think maybe I should have mist or chalked it but it didn't look bad on the page as is so I left it.
The 'Life's Portrait' sign is also cut from the Webster's Page's Hollywood collection.....that took so much time to cut the detial is so small, but I love the feel it gave the page!
I hope you have enjoyed my page, TFL
