i had another layout and card to share from my crate paper samples that i mentioned yesterday. once again, i simply started with about eight 3x3 squares of pattern paper. this time using the paper doll collection. i picked my favorite six of them, and here's what i did.
awwwww, miranda. such a sweetie. and one of my all around favorite, technically awesome shots of all time. and yes, i've scrapped this photo before. no reason i can't use it again. i was actually looking for another photo on my external hard drive, and came across this one. it just called out to me, to be used.
i trimmed down the papers to fit the area i was working with, and then distressed the edges of them and roughed them up. then on three of them, i found coordinating thread and tied it haphazzardly around the paper and tied a bow on the front. then i adhered the thread-wrapped papers with pop dots. i had shown this to a few friends, and one of them asked if i had bought that thread to match. nope, i didn't. i just happen to have a very large jar of random embroidery threads, in just about every color out there. so i can usually find what i need.
for the journaling, i went and searched her mom's blog. this photo was taken when she was about 8 months old (give or take a little). and now, she is almost 3 years old. i found a post sierra had written a few months back, where she talked about what miranda is into these days. so i wrote my journaling from her parents view point, and if they had any idea back then, that she would be who she is today. at some point, i'm sure this layout will end up in mom's hands ;)
and then another twist on the card i posted yesterday. this time using samples from the pink plum collection.
