**For my February Giveaway, please go HERE**
Hi! I hope your work has started off well :). My baby girl is sick and the boys I fear aren't far behind- but that is the way of it; when one gets sick, they all get sick. All a part of having kids! We're surviving- just glad I took my turn last week as it makes it easier to take care of them now :).
I got some scrapping done this past weekend- and more importantly, I got to play with my stash of *new* Prima- and I must say, I'm in LOVE! Today I will be sharing with you my February Prima BAP layout and before you know it, I will be back with my PPP. So let's get going!
I've combined a bit of Divine & Engraver here. I started with a base of mist in various shades and some random stamping with distress ink on top of that. Then came some layering of cardboard, a doily, book page, and- thanks to my new Sizzix Big Shot- some die cuts as well :). I have a feeling this new machine and myself are embarking upon a new and exciting relationship ;)~!
Here's the sketch:
And a closer look, if you please:
Creating my clusters are my most favorite thing to do on any project! Finding that harmony of color, various sizes of flowers, trims, and other embellishments is just so much fun :)~!
Isn't my niece Paisley just the cutest?? Kelly commented on how I don't often scrap her- and I really didn't have a good excuse, lol! She's adorable, obviously! So she gets the spotlight today ;).
I opted for just seed beads on my flourishes, rather than microbeads. I've had many people ask me what I use to adhere my beads (and yes, I've been noticing lots of you suddenly making use of your microbeads!)~ I always use Glossy Accents. I usually use the Glossy Accents to "draw" the path I want my beads to take, if that makes sense :). And I never have a problem getting them to stay where I want them to.
That's all I have for you today! So glad you stopped by- I always appreciate your comments and that you take the time to leave one :). I know how busy life can get- so that you take a few moments to check in makes me happy to have you all as friends :).
