A Little 13 Arts "Frosted Life"
Finally have time to blog a little bit!
Last night was my stepdaughters first prom and I was so excited to see her all dressed up with her prom date. Dad however, was a bit weary about the boy and had a hard time coming to terms that his first born is growing up so fast. In between teary eyes, I snapped a few pictures of the two. Of course I got right to scrapbooking with them!
For this LO I used 13 Arts "Frosted Life" collection along with some other goodies from the Flying Unicorn store.
I started by taking the Moon Dust sheet and then punched it with my Lucky 8 Fancy Scroll punch. I saved the leftover 'outline' after punching which I used to frame my LO. Sometimes if I'm very careful it'll punch nice and clean and I'm able to save those but usually they rip. I then fussy cut some bricks from the Cold Brick Wall sheet.
Now I also did this LO for CT member Marilia's Make your Own Background Challenge in the FORUM.
I used a lid and some gesso to creat the circles on the bottom sheet. I then used stamping, masking, and Lindys' mists to create my background. I also pulled out my Sew Easy tool to do a little stitching. I also altered the Petaloo Flower Vines just a bit by misting some white on them to tone down the color.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you find some time to get creative this week!
