It's already been a jam-packed weekend and we're about ready to head out the door again so my post will be brief. Just wanted to make sure I shared this page with you before the last few days of the month got away from me! I lost track of time and didn't get a chance to play along with the first challenge at Boy Meets Girl so I made a special effort to work on a page for the second one. For the second half of the month the subject must be a girl and this challenge was to use texture. This was so easy for me...I love dimension and texture! I roughed up my papers with a distressing tool, did some handstitching, and added embellies like brads, buttons and jewels. To create this layout I also used a fabulous sketch from Sketchabilities, which I rotated and changed the number of photos from three to one.
As usual I have used a mish mash of supplies including Crate Paper, Fancy Pants, Basic Grey, Prima, My Mind's Eye, Glitz, Colorbok and Sassafras Lass. The photo is of Paolina posing in her party dress just before the guests arrived to her third birthday party. I tried taking some quick photos of her with my iPhone which in my opinion didn't come out that great, but I played around with this one using a photo editing app and I'm pretty happy with the results. What on earth did we do before digital cameras and photo editing software??
