I can't believe I've made 3 layouts this month! Guess I'm making up for lost time when I didn't get any made in October, November and December!! Here's the promised follow-up to my previous layout...Mother's Tea 2013 with my youngest son, Daniel.
I started out with no papers in my stash that I liked with the picture so I inked up a piece of 12x12 paper on the backside. I have several papers I don't like that were given to me so thought I would put the plain white backside to use! After inking it in I still didn't like it so I bought some on Friday to choose from. I liked the Bo Bunny polka dot paper but still wasn't quite what I'd hoped for. So, I decided to ink the paper in more and this is what I came up with and I actually like it much better. I used Tim Holtz Blueprint Sketch and Salty Ocean with just a tad of Black Soot.
The "memories" and flourish chippies are from Creative Embellishments. I used liquid pearls (for the first time on chippies) in Royal Blue. The netting under the picture is from ham packaging! Also utilizing another of my handmade flowers. Black trim is from Pamela Wright's boutique, butterflies (I inked in the wings a bit with TH Blueprint Sketch to match my color better), teapot and spoon are from Reneabouquets. Curliques are wire from my stash that I wrapped around a pencil. Feathers are from Hobby Lobby. I added Stickles sporadically over the paper to match the bling in my blouse that is hard to see in the picture.
