Beautiful - just the way you are

Thank you so much for visiting my blog today.  I truly appreciate any visitors.

Over the weekend I created two pages  - the mojo is slowly returning.
Today's page is from the Scrapfriends (Kreative Koncepts) current challenge #23.

I have used photos of my DGS #2 along with a Dusty Attic word which says it all.  My journaling on the back says "Dear little Jake - you were born with a "Port Wine" stain birthmark on your cheek  Right from the start you were a little person with character, such a happy placid baby and you are BEAUTIFUL just the way you are - Love Granny"

Here is my take on the sketch
and some closeups.   I had fun playing with some mixed media.  On the Kaisercraft frame I used a template with heavy gel medium then inked to reveal the pattern.   Also used was moulding paste and liquid pearls for texture.   

Products used for this layout.
  • Prima paper -  Sunrise/sunset - Aperture
  • Prima flower vine
  • Prima tag & tile
  • Tim Holtz film strip & distress inks
  • Dusty Attic - Words DA0951M
  • Heidi Swap and The Crafters Workshop templates
  • Kaiser Bling Circles and Frame
  • Manor House pre-cut shapes
  • D-lish scraps wooden stars
  • Miscellaneous metal pieces - birdcage, bird nest, word circles
  • Wild Orchids cabochons and heart doily
  • Silks acrylic glaze - nutmeg
  • Heavy Gel medium
  • Moulding paste
I was really pleased with the way the page turned out.  Thank you Scrapfriends for a great sketch to work with. 

Well must away and get organised for Trina McClune's 3 'n 1 Class at Artful Crafts tomorrow night. 

Thanks again for visiting.  It would be lovely to know you have been by leaving a comment.

The other page I created is based on this months Prima BAP sketch so I will share that soon. 

Until next time......
