Happy Friday everyone. Here is a layout  I have just finished with Jessie when she was little.
For this one I used the colours from the photo, aqua and brown, with a little silver, plus I wanted to pick out a little of the green jelly shoes and pink dummy! I made the little pink flowers using a quilling tool.
So this is how I did it.
I used a sketch from SCRAPPING EVERYDAY MIRACLES for my inspiration. See link below.
I chose my papers and embellies.
I matted my photo first in brown then aqua and white papers and distressed all the edges.
I cut down the other three papers and distressed them as well.
I glued them down then added a doilly.
I added my matted photo.
I diecut  a birdcage and bird, then painted them.
I started to embellish with all my flowers and leaves and butterfly vine.
I added some doilly lace down the sides and some silver ribbon.
I added a couple of journal stickers.
I then added the title and a stick/hat pin.
I hope you like it and give it a go.
