And here is the back:
And, I have a video tutorial on how I made this great piece of home decor:
Be You Tiful LayoutThis is my take on our sketch this month:
I experimented with embossing powders and the Silks paint on the clock chipboard piece, and I used the mists from the mediums add on by flicking some of it all over the page. I also used the mist to color the lace and the wood clock. The alphas are Making Memories from my stash.
This is my daughter's 3rd grade school pic. She looks so grown up!!!
So, I wanted to challenge myself by using this super "girly" kit to make a masculine page. This is the result. My son just turned eleven last weekend, so I thought it would be nice to have his birthday pic on display this month, and I really wanted to use the kit. I like the results.
Thanks for taking the time to check out my projects, and hopefully the video!
