This is a picture of my DD on the stone veranda wall at Boldt Castle. I can only imagine what she must be thinking and wishing at this very moment. This was such a fun day trip for us. She LOVED the castle. What little, or big, girl wouldn't? LOL
I made this page for a challenge at Swirlydoos. Mandy is running one of the group challenges this month and her challenge was to use curves! No...not like that! Circles, solid and a loop and for an extra point we needed to use something that you wouldn't normally use on a scrapbook page.
The patterned paper is a combination of a past kit and the current kit. The black paper is made by Glitz and the white paper is made by Pink Paislee. It is actually the back side to one of their resist papers. I love the old, fancy-schmancy handwriting.
I handmade the Calla Lillies using a stamp from Heartfelt Creations. I used the Spellbinders Dies that coordinate with the stamps to cut out the shape. I also used an embossing powder by Ranger called Bridal. It is so pretty. It has really fine glitter in it and when heated you end up with a glowing, glittery shimmer that is so soft. It was hard to get a picture that does it justice. You have to take my word for it. It is very pretty. I also used it on the chipboard word "Beautiful" by Dusty Attic. First I used an Adirondack Paint Dabber in White and then while the paint was still wet I put the Bridal Embossing Powder on it and embossed it.
The leaves I hand made using Fimo Clay and Perfect Pearls. I used a leaf mold made for jewelry that also had a built in embosser. The embosser gave the leaves all of that lovely veining. After I cut them and embossed then, I then used copper and green Perfect Pearls to give them that autumn feel. I shaped them by hand in order to five them a more dimensional look. All that was left was to bake them for 30 minutes and then they were ready to put on the page. I am in love with clay and will certainly be working it into my pages going forward.
