"Find your Inner Beauty" Canvas

So, as part of the education team, it is our job to create a project using the technique add on, and here is is mine: 

The mirror is not in the kit. I bought it at Michaels in the photo frame section. And, I have to tell you, that I feel so bad that this is the best pic I could get- photographing a mirror is CRAZY difficult. :) Who wants to see my ugly mug in the mirror trying to take a picture, RIGHT? But, I do have a step-by-step video on how I made this that you can see HERE, and it will give you a much clearer and closer look.


"Shh..." Layout


This is my layout based on our April sketch, which is crazy beautiful! I decided to do a corner flap and used the ric-rac that came in the kit to make it appear like fabric, just like how the blue paper appears to look like blue jeans, keeping with that them with the rivets and snaps, which I thought was perfect for a baby boy layout. 

Thanks for looking!

I love that fence. The pages are really pretty. I think the trees reflecting in the mirror add to the page. The little boy page is very masculine and cute. Great job.
