All the papers seen here are by SEI and I've used an XL Dazed Shape & an acrylic Fleur-d-Lis by Clear Scraps.
This is my little Toby as a puppy back in 2008. He had just finished running around or 'dancing' as I like to think of it as--in a summer rainstorm with me. It's one of my fondest memories of him as a puppy.
Dancing in at least one summer rainstorm is kind of a tradition of mine. This was the first time I actually had someone join me! He ran all around the backyard in his yellow slicker--chasing me around & just enjoying life & the fabulous rain. Needless to say, I looked just as drenched as he did after it was all over. :-) We had a lot of fun that day...
I'm also happy to say that this was the layout that was printed in the PaperHaus Spring Issue 2013! I was quite honored & happy to be selected along with other such wonderful talent.
The lovely ruffled light blue flower seen here I bought from an Etsy shop called More Paper Than Shoes. Anna the owner, has many absolutely gorgeous handmade paper flowers for all sorts of occasions in this shop--she does lovely work.
The vellum flowers were handmade by me & the light blue organza star flower seen in the bottom right hand corner are flowers from my stash. I have many of these flowers in all different colors currently available in my own Etsy shop if anyone is interested.
I feel that adding a bit of tulle to your pages softens it a bit--at least this is the impression tulle gives me.
Zeus & Zoe. The owner Marivic has these & many other fabulous items for crafting in her shop!
Fleur-d-Lis is one of Clear Scraps Clearly Accent Embellishments. I've applied drops of blue & yellow alcohol inks directly onto the acrylic in order to give it a bolder effect. I highlighted the edges with a black Sharpie Oil Based Paint Pen.
I applied the same technique to the edge of the acrylic XL Dazed Shape in the background--I accentuated the border with a yellow Sharpie Oil Based Paint Pen & dots of blue Liquid Pearls.
If interested in how I make these journaling scrolls--you can find a tutorial here.
Thanks for stopping by & enjoy the rest of the week!
