Grandma's Garden - Swirlydoos May Kit
This page makes me think of lemonade. Not sure why, but it does. I used a Florabella action on my photo of my daughter at the lake a few years ago. I love the warm vintage look of it. I'm not a huge fan of plaid paper, but when I paired this up with the floral print and the coordinating card stock I immediately fell in love. It reminds me of Grandma's. The design is based on a sketch by Suepup for Let's Capture Our Memories.
I once again used Petaloo's Color Me Crazy frames. I applied Vintage Photo Distress Ink to the smaller frame directly from the pad and then misted it with water and let it dry. I misted the outer frame in yellow, olive and espresso bean. I attached the two frames and used one of the Inkadinkadoo stamps that came in the kit and embossed the corners.
This page is for the monthly sketch that Beggahuna does for each of our kits. It is a gorgeous sketch but there is soooooo much white space! I have some bizarre fear of white space. I try to do white space pages, but I can't seem to keep myself from adding things LOL. I flipped the sketch upside down and decided rather than using 3 individual photos that I would use one photo and crop it in a few different ways.
The heart is from the Petaloo Color Me Crazy frames pack. Don't they look like tumbled stone? I wrote a tutorial for Swirlydoos, so head on over and check it out!
Thanks so much for stopping by and checking out my May projects.
