This is a layout I made for a friend a couple of weeks ago. I am planning to make a layout of her daughter as well one of these days, but thought I’d share this in the meantime. It was so nice to take a break from all the cards and do something scrappy again, it’s been far, far too long. kort-dec-08-007_cropped

A couple of things about the layout: I made the background using several shades of blue and silver Color Box (cat’s eye) inks, the title is a rub-on transfer I made, as you can see by the smudge, which I don’t mind at all actually, I think it makes it more interesting than perfection would be. I made the flower from the same paper as I used behind the photo and then I sprayed it with home-made glimmer mist (distress (walnut stain) reinker,  gold acrylic pain and water) and it shimmers a lot. I think I’ll go easier on the gold paint next time I make a batch. The image on the tag is an image transfer I made with the help of Mod Podge (gotta love that stuff!) and then I inked it with distress inks.

Thanks for looking!
