The inspiration for this layout is my adorable niece Anna. Anna loves to pretend. She is quiet when she pretends & usually whispers. I wanted to convey a dreamy sort of quiet feeling in the layout & the Basic Grey Wisteria papers were just the ticket! They were featured in the June 09 Limited Edition kit from My Creative Scrapbook.
The flower base is the Basic Grey Wisteria chipboard stickers. I added a couple layers of punched flowers, using various punches & dies to give them some dimension. I used the papers used in layout & lightly distressed them with Distress Ink-Faded Jeans, Milled Lavender, & Scattered Straw. Green jeweled bling was adhered for center.
I punched those pretty papers with a Martha Stewart border punch & distressed it with the Faded Jeans ink. The leafy vine is from the Wisteria Chip pack highlighted with Stickles eucalyptus.
The title work was originally white letters from the Basic Grey Euphoria line. I painted them with a combination of 2 Ranger Alcohol inks-Wild Plum & Stonewashed. I then added some of the Blending Solution to lighten the color. A quick top coat of Lavender Stickles completed the process.
I highlighted the chip flowers with Stickles-lavender, Eucalyptus, & Waterfall. Say it with Crystal flourishes were cut & scattered on the center circle.
I was happy with the results!! It felt so great to create again!
Thanks my friends for taking a peek!! You are the best!
