I have a new Grand Nephew!! My Nephew Matt and his wife Nancy (the doctor) just had a beautiful baby boy!! His name is Justin Goodwin.. He is Gorgeous!! My Nephew just graduated College and is going on to Law School so there is a lot going on in his life right now.. I am so happy for both of them!!
I grabbed a picture of Justin on Facebook and did a Layout with it. The first of many I'm sure!
I first inked the edges of my 12x12 paper
with Walnut Stain Distress Ink
then in my stash of paper I found this Graphic 45 piece of paper and
distressed the edges heavily with my Distress tool
I stitched around the 12x12 paper and the top of the scrap piece of paper not really trying
to stay straight..
I then cut a strip of the Graphic 45 paper I had another scrap of and created the border
which I put underneath a big torn edge of the first piece of scrap paper..
Then I thought what else does this need.. flowers of coarse!!
I took out my White Petaloo Flowers .. They are the "Wild Roses" and are just right for painting.
I painted them with Perfect Pearls.
The best technique for doing that is to spritz a little water on your crafts mat and put a little of the perfect pearls in it.. The mat stays wet and it's so easy to clean up.
With Perfect Pearls you do not need a fixative they have one build in..
Sometimes I use Pearl Ex or Twinkling h20's with both I spray with hairspray when I'm done ..
When the flowers were completely dry I inks the edges of them with Walnut Stain to give them
some contrast in color..
I then scrunched them back up to give them their form back..
You really need to do this just before they are totally dry and then again after their dry..
