Family

Hi everyone,

Here is another single page layout put together with some absolutely fabulous Ivytree Studio papers. This layout is of my eldest daughter and her youngest daughter. Isn't this just one of those gorgeous "aaah cute" photographs?


I cut out 8 circles from the papers listed below, using both sides, as long as the paper had pink colour on it. Then I decided to go a little overboard with the embellishments and added flowers and leaves punched with an Olba punch out of the same papers, and hand sewed a running stitch around the edges of two of the circles.

The quilled leaves and flowers were made by cutting thin strips (about 3mm wide) of Ivytree Studio papers, and I then chalked the white edges of the 'leaves' with Tim Holtz Spun Sugar distress ink. Flat-backed pearl drop gems were added as the bling (yes, I'm still bling mad).

This is the punched flower in the bottom-right corner of the layout, with a pearl added in the centre - eek and more bling.

I discovered this Enmarc chipboard in my drawer while I was looking for something else, and thought it would work very well on this layout. I chalked it up with pink then added Glossy Accents to create the 3D depth and shine.

Flower at bottom-left of the layout was created with punched pieces, and the large one cut out of Ivytree Studio papers. The centre is a brad holding everything together.

I am very happy with the end result of this page!
