An absolute delight - when she wants to be....
Saturday, 3 April 2010
Yes my girls are little angels - arn't everyones? Until they decide not to be and then it's a mix between tornado, terrorist, and garden fairy! They can magically blow up my entire house in seconds, leaving me with the rubble to clean up. I chose a photo of Amber for this weeks challenge over at Practical Scrappers - we have to use Rub-ons - which seriously are not my friends. I don't use them very often, so this really was a challenge for me. Either they don't transfer properly, our something else horrid happens and they make my layout look like a chook ran over it! Any way, thankfully this time they behaved. I found these beautiful rub ons in my stash that I've had for years, and as soon as I put them and Amber's photo of her upside down I knew exactly how I wanted my layout to look! These rub ons reminded me of chandeliers (which I love!), so I added them to the layout, the using my sewing machine, created gold thread lines from the top of my layout down to them. Then I hand sewed some orange seed beads and primas onto the gold thread to add interest. What looks like journalling down in the bottom right corner is in fact a rub on from the same sheet as the others. I doodled a border around the photo in black pen. The photo was taken of Amber, head down - bum up after a swim - I thought it looked pretty cool! She's such a funny girl!
Here's a closeup of the rub ons and the primas - I love the intricacy of the rub ons! I added some bling to the centre of the white flowers and the rub ons.
