HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
My layout for today was submitted at Soul Scrappers for their Word Challenge (WC18). The word to use on your layout is "Believe."
I chose a sketch from Becky Fleck/Page Maps (April 2012) and this is what I created:
These are my nieces. My sister sent this photo to me of their dance recital. They're such cuties!!
Butterfly Stencil: The Crafter's Workshop
Gems: Forever in Time
Font: Cricut Opposites Attract
Martha Stewart Border Punch
Stars & Hearts
Foil Embossed Swirls: Forever in Time
Elastic Sparkle Stretch Cord
First time I used the foil embossed swirls and they are so cool!
The circles were made with random objects to trace. The heart was traced and cut, distressing the edges and adding a bow using sparkle stretch cord.
The heart was so "white" so using a paper towel with alcohol ink dripped on it, I swiped the edges of the heart and before the alcohol dried up, I lightly coated the whole heart. A small flower with pearl gem was added in the center.
Under the title I hand wrote, "that you can."

And here's the right side of my page.
Have a wonderful start to 2013!
