This is a layout of my daughter from last Halloween.
I have created this for the latest challenge over at Scrapbookaholic By Abby. She is challenging everyone to use bling. I used gems and glittery letters so I have lots of bling on my project, but it's certainly one of my favorite things :)
I started off with a 12 inch piece of purple cardstock and added a sheet of paper from a 6 by 6 pad of Basic Grey paper from their Kioshi line in the top right corner.
I placed little bits of different colored bling gemstones in the centers of some of the flowers. Then I started spelling out my title using some sparkly Thickers. I added a piece of satin ribbon along the very bottom of that paper.
I added another small strip of paper from that pad below it. I could have used a full 6 inch sheet again, but since a lot of it would have been covered by a picture I cut a strip that was about 2 and 1/2 inches wide and just a little bit got covered. I finished spelling the title with the Thickers on this piece.
All of my photos are 4 by 6, but the one on the bottom right is partially covered by another photo and is now about 4 by 4.
I did my journaling on the small block of purple that shows from the original sheet. I used my Gelly Roll pen from Sakura and it worked great even on the textured cardstock.
