Good Morning!!! Finally a decent day here in Melbourne, first couple days of spring were dreadful as it was cold and it just kept raining! however, this enabled me to fit some time in to create this page!! Today I've created a layout of me and my beautiful younger sister. I'm entering this page into Scraps N Pieces competition this month. It's all about creating a feminine layout. Now, if anyone goes through my album, you will quickly realize I have a thing for pink in my pages, because this was a feminine layout competition, I wanted to step away from that security of mine of creating a stereotypical pink page. I wanted to keep it simple yet effective to the eye!
For the background, I have used watercolor to create stokes of color (Blue, Peach and Yellow). I have also used a triangle stamp by Kaisercraft for stamping and have added some Heidi Swapp embellishments.
I have added some ink splatters with Heidi Swapp color shine (seafoam, mustard, pink) and Dylusions black Ink.
Wooden Veneers are one of my absolute favorite embellishments at the moment, since this page was all about females, I thought these people embellishments by Studio Calico would be perfect to represent a big female (me being a big sister) and a little female to represent my little sister. (shes 14 now, but she will always be my LITTLE sister!)
I have used a collage of papers from Best of American Crafts Paper Pad-Meilleur D
Please feel free to leave comments! I hope you come back to my blog soon and also have a look around at the other layouts I've created!
