Another gorgeous photo that I have been dying to scrap for so long, this time it's my Riley...
I didn't want to lose the innocence in the photo by making it a real "boy" layout so wanted it softer... Tracy at My2Angels answered my prayers the other day when she handed me a brand new product - an embellishment kit in blues with some flowers and a gorgeous altered flower with a charm - called charming florals (she is sooo good at these - checkout her charming chains too!!). Naturally as I'm so addicted to her gorgeous hat pins I had to add one to the layout too :-)
I love the new Twiddleybitz Bird on a Branch so I had fun glimmer-misting it and then using enamels to make the bird blue - but my favourite part of that is sewing it to the page with my machine (who says they are really for material and making clothes)!!!
I also love my new Tim Holtz Tab Die (Thank you to the awesome Rachel Pepper Walsh for helping me figure out how to stack it in my bigshot!) and how perfectly the little stamped saying fits. I have hand journaled on the patterned paper (did you see it straight off or did you have to look for it?). The foliage the Twiddleybitz leaves provides really breaks up the blue - but nicely; I really like the way they all sit behind the fence and only the charming flower is hanging over. I love the definition inking around the edges gives - my tried and true favourite technique I think!!
