April Project 12 LO

Thursday, May 20, 2010

I've got another Project 12 layout, for you all, today.
Here's what I came up with.
I, really, love how sweet this layout is!  Although, how can I possibly go wrong with my baby girl as the subject :)?!
I started this page by layering the cherry, patterned paper on the green, diamond, patterned paper.  I, then, machine stitched a white-threaded, zig-zag stitch between the two.  The pictures and journal box, which had been punched across the top and bottom, were added next.  A punched strip of blue, polka dot, patterned paper was, also, added to the left side of the photo to the far left of the page.  I, then, machine stitched a white-threaded, straight stitch, across the tops of the photographs and journal box, running over onto the cherry, patterned paper, and down the length of the left edge of the cherry patterned paper, beginning above and ending way below the far left photo.  The journal box reads, I just couldn't resist snapping all these gorgeous pictures of you hanging out on my bed, reading one of your library books, and looking so sweet.  I'm sure that there will be many more just like it as we eagerly watch you grow.  It was dressed up with a"sweet baby" die-cut title; a strip of red, polka dot, patterned paper, punched along its bottom edge; a May 30, 2009 date card; a "Pretty AS A PICTURE" butterfly, dimensional sticker; a "six months" die-cut; a star strip die-cut; a star tab; lots of gemstones; and a paper, box flower.
The box flower was punched out and embellished with a chipboard button, stacked with a Pure Poppy button and laced with a sheer, polka dot ribbon, tied in a bow.  The chipboard button was painted with acrylic paint, distressed with Chamomile and Chai inks, and glittered.
This side of the layout boasts all the same goodies.  As well as, machine stitching a white-threaded, zig-zag stitch between the main and inside papers, I, also, carried it up between the red, polka dot and cherry, patterned papers.  The far right side of the red, polka dot, patterned paper was trimmed with a punched strip of blue, polka dot, patterned paper.  I, also, added the same, white-threaded, straight stitching, across the tops and down the length of the far right photo, running over onto the red, polka dot, patterned paper.  A chipboard bracket; a row of gemstones; and a couple more box flowers, dressed up with Pure Poppy and/or chipboard buttons, laced with white string, were the perfect finishing touches.  The chipboard pieces were prepared the same as described above.

It's raining, AGAIN, here; but we're going to have a fabulous day, anyway!  You do the same!

I love the pops of red, the flowers you made, and the white stitching. I also really like that bracket!

Thank you so much for playing along! Davinie
