The photo frame in the middle is very inspiring. I cut out the middle, flipped it over and added it back in after distressing and inking the sides. I also distressed and inked the frame and added a bit of lace around it. I cut a small incision to add a half of a journaling note card from Prima (from a previous kit), which I misted and worked with smooch colors to match the colors of the layout.
There was this white space above the photo, which I did not like. Then I watched the monthly technique kit from Lynne over on YouTube and then had the idea of adding texture with molding paste and ink.
A bit of sewing was added to the sides and the inner sqare. The ZVA creative swirl was just white, I used my copic marker to color two strands in blue to match the layout.
The photo was really bright blue- I used the "fade" function on iphoto to match the colors
Here are a few details. I love the tinsel from PinkPaislee which I added to the flower cluster.
Here you can see the molding paste and lace I added. I also added a pull out tag for the hidden journaling.
The design was a bit too oriented towards the right, so I added the flowers and butterflies for a better balance.
In our apartment, we have got very dangerous furniture! It keeps "eating" our little boy! 6 months is a fun age.
Thanks for stopping by!
All the best,
