A layout – about time!

Last week I had a little minibook page lurking on my WOYWW desk but in the end I really felt it needed a more substantial treatment so I switched to a 12 x 12 layout.  A photo of DD, wearing a mask we bought her for one of her school plays.  She was dashing by be when I snapped the photo, hence the unusual angle.  But I love the photo and although I have made a layout (many years ago) using other, more recognizable shots from the same day, this photo never seemed to fit anyplace.  Now it does, in a very OTT layout that is embellished to within an inch of it’s life!



a couple of fun things – I used clear TAPE  (Heidi Swapp, maybe?), which I have a lot of but always hesitate to use because getting it stuck down smoothly is hard for me.  I stuck it to a bit of vellum (and it did allow a bit of pulling up and sticking back down) which gave it a different look.  I like it.  And the little crocheted rose – I found a great pattern which I will link to, probably tomorrow.  I’m experimenting with a few variations and if I get time I want to make some other samples to include.



I like the wire fronds with beads stuck in place with Diamond Glaze, something that struck me while struggling with the darn birdcage earlier.  I have a lot of wire and a lot of beads so this will possibly show up again.







Those letters are from a tub of WRMC double-churned alphabets.  They don’t punch out of the surrounds well (I don’t think) and always look a bit rough, but by sponging on some Distress Ink and clear embossing, they look a lot better.







The background and the corner of flowers over the photo are from Websters Pages and the big wings are from the Caio Bella paper pack.  Oh, and I used some skeleton leaves (remember when they were all the rage?) that I unearthed.



Off to crochet….
