I Can Fly

This was my 2 page layout using the beautiful Stella Rose collection from My Minds Eye. I started by printing out a photo (with title) on watercolor paper in black & white. Next I used glimmer mist & water color to a paint the picture. Than I randomly stamped all over. I punched the left side of the paper with a border punch. The word fly was quite muted so covering it with glossy accents helped it to pop a bit with that epoxy look. I printed out a 2nd photo & cut out just my daughters face & cut a hole in the watercolor paper to put the photo face in. The only problem was her head looked funny as she had this photo jutting out of it. Adding jute in cut strips to represent her hair was the perfect fix. The title & flowers, & swirl are all from the same Pink Paislee alphabet sheet. It is wonderfully covered in glitter which added some more texture. After matting & putting my photos on the 2nd page I created a tag, distressing it with spiced marmalade, than stamped all over vintage photo & added a cute key brad. The edges of the tag were distressed with the tonic distress tool & inked. Ribbons & a charm were added along with a THoltz reinforcer sticker. A strip of paper & tissue tape both THoltz was added at the bottom of the photo along with one of the My Minds Eye brads. They come in a package with all sorts of fun paper embellishment. i hope you enjoy!!!
