Well...I finally found time to use the beautiful and highly inspirational May kit from the Scrapperie. I cannot fully express the amazingness (is that a word) of these kits. They are phenomenal. Sandi just has a knack for finding stuff that works together...incredible. I use things I would never have used. In this latest layout I used feathers...Yep...that is right...feathers. Needless to say, the minute my DT term was over I signed up for a 6 month subscription of her PDR option. (That is the kit that has it all!)
And even though I struggled with this layout...beads, flocking, painting, inking, color core, and sanding...I just love it. My Dad always takes pictures...especially of me and my daughter. These are the only photos I have of her and I. But alas...my dad is not digital and doesn't understand the concept of "framing". I really need to invest in a scanner...probably the next scrappy purchase I make...but in the mean time, I make lemonade out of these wonderful lemons. Check it out -->Ok...the photo does not do this layout justice. The chipboard is inked with frayed burlap (ranger/tim holtz ink), then flocked with brown flocking by doodlebug. I used the quicky glue pen to make it look like bark. I put beads on the wing of the felt bird and sewed a bead for the eye. I used multiple colors of paint for the birds and used a feather for their tails. I should take a close up photo for all the deatails! And here they are -->
I think I have at least another layout and some wall decor coming out of this kit! I can't wait to see what materializes!!
