“Perfect Beauty”

Hello and welcome.

Today I have my Design Team creation for Maja Designs, “Perfect Beauty”.

Last year was a huge year for my eldest daughter having graduated from high school. Of course there was the formal and semi formal and graduation dinners and lots of differing ceremonies to celebrate many milestones of her schooling life. And as always, I was there at the ready with my camera to capture all of these moments.

Sometimes for me, it is easier behind the camera, because I can hide my emotions of joy of pride and of just being her mum. I am, as I am of all my children so very proud. So you can imagine how I felt when I saw this photo after taking so many many photos in only a short space of time. Because of course we were running late !

So with you I will share now all the details of this project.

 

For my project I used a combination of different collections. My background piece “Sunbleached” was from Denim and Friends.

And my second piece from the Summertime collection.  This is titled “Wind in my hair”. Is was so easy to combine both pieces for this project. Looking closely at the Sunbleach page you will see snippets of the vintage orange with compliments it very easily. And because the quality of these papers are amazing I was able to do some creasing of “Wind in my hair” by spritzing the paper with water and manipulating it. I then dried the paper off. Did a little sanding, tearing and distressing. I then adhered the two pieces together.

With my remaining papers ( I actually used two sheets of each) I did more tearing and made layers to sit under my photo. I also matted my photo. I have embellished my page with lots of Dusty Attic chipboards that were dressed in acrylic paints and distress inks.

Above you can see the layers of papers intertwined with chipboards and flowers and lace and also a little Cheesecloth.

My flowers used were from 49andMarket. They were all coloured with acrylic paints to compliment my layout.

Here you can see the creases made on my background paper. I have also done some stamping and painting of my background.

Lots of layers made with the papers which you can see above. I love to tear these papers and use both a and b sides. I have tucked in lots of pieces of lace cut into smaller pieces to give some height to my layout.

Well that is all from me tonight. I do hope you have enjoyed my post here today. Thank you for popping by.

Until next time take care and happy scrapping.
