Speaking of titles, I think I have the longest word EVER for a title on a LO. You see, Charlotte loves The Wiggles. And there is a song about picking flowers, and in the background the guys are singing "he's a horticulturalist....he's a regular botanist....". Whenever we see flowers, I sing that song, we smell them, and she goes..."Mmmmmm".
She also has a facination with dirt...and mulch...I have even had to scoop some from her mouth before. So this summer, she wanted to play in grandma's garden and since I was right there, I let her, and she had so much fun!
I used the uber beautiful Sept. Scrapbook Circle kit.
I did both dry embossing and heat embossing on this page.
For the embossed cardstock background, I sprayed some glimmer mist on a brayer and ran it over the negative side of the cardstock so that the pattern would show through in white.
The birds, the swirls, the black and white waves, the title, and the journaling block are all heat embossed with different colored powders. For my bling, I went over some of the embossed flourishes with Stickles.
I did some dry embossing with plates right on the photo itself!!!
I also embossed the strip of patterned paper, and the little heart. For the heart, I cut out some chipboard and painted it, then put glossy accents on it. When the glossy accents dried, I ran it through an embossing plate.
The photo in this LO itself is a bit blurry, but I loved it so much....it is my mom and my daughter, and I just love both of their expressions. I wanted the photo and the technique to be the "stars" of this LO, so that is why there is a lot of white space.
OK, so there it is!!! Hopefully I will make it to the next round!!!!!
