Beautiful



So the first thing you might have noticed is it is not the most traditionally beautiful photo!  It makes me laugh as it shows what it is like trying to get a beautiful shot of the kids and their characters.

I created this page based on the sketch over at the Studio this week - I reduced the size of the grid and added the title on the other side of my grid, but other than that I stuck fairly closely to it.


I used a mixture of Crate Paper lines - some DIY shop and Flea Market.  I cut little 2" squares from a range of the papers, and then went about decorating, distressing and inking them.  Starting from the top left and going across, I punched a heart and then made a shaker using acetate and seed beads, for the next one a couple of layers of paper and a prima bark star, the next a couple of lines of prima lace and a Pretty Party sticker.  Onto the next line and a little banner made from twine and paper, the next I used some of the word strips on the Flea Market paper, the next was left plane as it is behind the photo.  The bottom line I used the punched heart and piled some twine behind it and then added a prima wooden button to the top, for the next one I used some wood veneer chevrons from Studio Calico.  I placed my photo inside the large polaroid chipboard shape you get with the Flea Market chipboard and added a golden heart.  I then cut a few of the plates for the circle part of the sketch and added a little chipboard button and butterfly.  The title is also from Pretty Party.  
There is lots of inspiration over on the Studio blog here, and I am also up on the Tando blog today with a noticeboard here.
