I chose my background, to bring out Jacobi’s blond hair, then started to layer using the colors in her outfit & in the photo.5bdab22d-c626-4387-86f3-4ad128efd9cd_zps03a70b66

Here is another LO I did, using a photo of me & my 5 dogs in the garden area that I staged for the Maja Vintage Papers. I am so happy I did that, the garden turned out beautiful & I got lots of good photo’s to use!!! This garden was also very different from the rest of my gardens.03376df8-31fb-419c-a017-c1ac35906ef6_zps3f09bc88

I wanted my flower cluster’s to look woodsy as they do in the photo. I started by punching out a lot of tiny flowers, out of coffee filters,drew lines on them, inked the edges, then dabbed on some Viva Gold Metallic rub, then I put a drop of petal pink liquid pearls in the center of each flower. I then put a drop of glue on the center of the back of the flower & glued them down to the LO. I then cut out lots of little flowers from the 6th of April sheet,& glued these in between the other flowers. I put a drop of opal white liquid pearls on those flowers. After the glue dried I played with the flowers with my fingers,lifting them, to bring out each tiny flower….1d543d82-6336-4ad7-87df-62c264c17286_zps58eb55f1

Where I did the lace work, I worked with that piece before I glued it on to the main back ground. I did all of my distressed layers,stitching & lacing, then I glued it to the background, with the burlap trim under it….ac58e8cc-41bf-4cfb-9f74-7c6d1b29c8b3_zps88719765

I used picket fence crackle on the flourish & once that dried I rubbed in brown chalk & inked the edges…a871bf88-0447-482d-9ef4-6690fc8e43e7_zps007e97f9
