Brooklyn's Baby Album

Good Morning,

I wanted to start a baby album for Brooklyn's first year. I still have to do the layout of the ultra sound photos but I haven't quite figured out how I want to do them yet. It will be a one page layout as it's the first page in the album when I figure it out.

For the day that Brooklyn arrives, I chose to use a sketch from " Lets Scrap" You can click the link here to visit   http://letsscrap.ning.com/?xg_source=badge

This sketch is tagged 5-5-12.
INSM12#6, 5-5-12 Scrap Yourself Scrapping!

Here's my take on the sketch...

Ornaments for Festival of Trees

Good Morning,

I'm just doing this quick post to share the two ornaments I made for the Festival of Trees. The first one I did was the Christmas Tree. I used Acrylic paints, glitter, glossy accents, perfect pearls, and fibers. The picture doesn't show the fibers all that well. The second one I did was the Peacock Feather. On this one I coated the base with gesso and went over it with golden shimmer acrylic paint. I then used a peacock feather stencil with some modeling paste. Once that was dry I used liquid pearls to follow the pattern of the feather and added the ribbon.

Tree Tops

Happy Saturday,

Today I made a layout inspired by sketch 4-25-12 over at Lets Scrap.  Here's the inspiration layout.


Here's my take on the inspiration layout.

The first four pictures were taken on Friday 11/1 in the evening around 5:00pm. The second three pictures were taken this morning 11/2 around 8:30am. I was sitting in the same chair in the same spot when I took these pictures through my family room window. It's pretty amazing how different the tree tops look with about the same amount of light outside but being different times of the day.
