Yippee!! I made it through week 1 of Bad Girls Top Designer!!! So here is my class 2 LO.
We had to use a least 2 types of printed paper. As usual I went overboard:):):) But "to thine ownself be true" right? :):)This design has been in my dreams for awhile now and it feels so good to finaly have it on paper! I love quilting and wanted to encorporate it into my scrapping, so I made my own victorian crazy quilt! I sewed tiny pieces of paper and fabric together to make this mini quilt. What fun to not worry about 1/4 inch seams and precision cut pieces!! This was very liberating:) I used alcohol inks on transparency for the leaves, crackle paint, glossy accents, embossing, lots of stitching and distressing! The Prima peach and blue flower is from my dear friend Karen, aka Scrapoholiker! (Thank you Karen:)This photo was taken 6 years ago when we were a family of 3! It really was was perfect day! TFL:) take care!

My Son

Here is my latest LO of dear hubby and Evan! My little man was only 5 days new! This was created for the Bad Girls Top Designer competition class 1! We had to focus on layering and showcase at least two examples!! As usual, I couldn't stop adding stuff:):):) As for techniques used, I sewed the background paper to the hambly transparency, and sewed the photo down as well. I used crackle glossy accents on the hands stamp, (a tip I learned from my dear friend Karen)! Alcohol inks on the metal clocks, and lots of distressing! Of course, I had to sneak in some bling, and two tiny butterflys! Thanks for looking, ya'll have a great day!
