My Daughter 90

Mona Pendleton | Tuesday, May 1, 2012 @ 10:50 PM | , , , ,

Hi there! Hard to believe we're half way to the weekend ~ yahoo! I've been a little busy working on projects for the May Waltzingmouse Stamps release that will begin this Saturday, May 5th. It's been awhile since Claire has released new stamps sets but I've been lovin' the ones I already have. I think Claire's images are  unique, timeless and versatile.


I scrapped one of my favorite photos of my dear daughter, Angie and I that was taken nearly 10 years ago using a hodgepodge of products from various companies. Oh how time flies...sigh...
While I was out for some retail therapy, I came across a great sale  on manufactured flowers ~ they were 50% off! Needless to say, I picked up a few packages. However, I made all the pink blooms on this layout using my neglected Tim Holtz Glassine Kraft paper, Spellbinders Rose Creations dies and some ink. The rest are the manufactured ones I previously mentioned.

Rather than journaling, I stamped a sentiment from Waltzingmouse Roses in Bloom, cut using a Spellbinders Circle SM die, layered and stitched on top of a Lacey Circle die cut then adhered it to a Want2Scrap Nestaboard Heart Circle. Many thanks to Donna Salazar for the pretty Want2Scrap Dress Form and pearls used on this layout. Back in March, I was the featured artist on the Donna Salazar Designs Girlie Grunge site and as a prize, I received those items. 
In case you were curious to know how I made the pink blossoms, I took a few step shots. First, I crinkled up a sheet of Tim Holtz Glassine Kraft paper, cut using Spellbinders Rose Creations dies:
Then I painted using various inks:
I adhered the layers together with a little dab of glue, then finished off with a brad. SUPER easy! :)

For sketch inspiration, I played along with the May Once Upon A Time Sketch Challenge which also has a "Mum" theme.
Thanks so very much for looking! Be Sweet :)

Other supplies used not mentioned:
Dies: Spellbinders Nested Pennants, Fancy Tags One, PTI foliage and Parisian Lace DoilyGrand Calibur
Patterned Paper: Donna Salazar Botanique, Antiquities
