SKETCHABILITIES DESIGN TEAM REVEAL #90 BAILEY

http://sketchabilities.blogspot.co.uk/
Morning all and welcome to SKETCHABILITIES DESIGN TEAM SKETCH REVEAL #90.

I hope you like the photo of our puppy, Bailey. He is soooo cute.
Anyway, this is how I put this page together.

I chose all my colours from the photo then chose my papers.
I cut down my pretty background paper to 11 x 11 inches and distressed all the edges.
I cut down the blue background card to 11.5x 11.5 inches and distressed all the edges.
I adhered these to my caramel background cardstock.
I matted my photo three times in  co-ordinating colours (and distressed all the edges).
Then I started to make my layers as per the sketch. I hand cut the three banners, cut the mats, distressed the edges and glued them in place.
I added the photo on top of all the layers.
I tucked  white doilies  underneath.
I then made a little pin tuck in the top left corner using water and pinching. I put a piece of doily in the back and added some mini roses. I repeated this in the opposite corner.
Next I die cut three retro hearts and added some brown ink.
I started to make all my  flowers using mulberry paper and music paper. spiral flower tutorial here
I adhered them all using a heat gun, adding mini roses and assorted flowers as I went.
I cut out a butterfly, added a beaded body beaded pin tutorial here and antennae and added some fuzzy fibres and vine leaves.
I added some sticker alphabets for the title.
And there you have it.
