This month I was privileged to be number 1 on my Round Robin team over at Swirlydoos.com. This means I had to design a page and the rest of my team has to scraplift my page...no pressure. This month we had a couple of rules. #1, more than one picture on your layout. #2 specialty paper with an extra bonus point if you use that specialty paper to make a flower. #3, rub ons. Here is my entry for the November RR...
This is a page of my DD and her BFF. They have known each other since preschool and even though they attend different schools now, we still make sure they get together a couple times each year. When they do get together, it's like nothing has changed and they were never apart. I think these two will be friends for life. I decided to try a monochromatic LO for this month.
Here is a closeup of the bottom right. The flowers are by Petaloo. I took a doily and cut and folded it to make a flower that is peeking out on the left side of the picture. I used distress stain in spun sugar to color the doily edges. There is a piece of mulberry paper peeking out on the right just below that doily. There is also some Melissa Frances tissue garland under the bottom picture and under the top picture (you can see better in the picture below)
The brick wall is made with clear embossing paste mixed with Luminarte primary elements in icicles. It really turned out cool. I have been using my new Luminarte products on EVERYTHING!!
Wood letters are by Kaisercraft. I primed them with gesso and used Luminarte's primary elements in chiffon pink. You have to mix the primary elements with gum arabic in order to get it to stick. I used the left over paint to color the mini lily that I made from my punch.
This final picture shows the Kaisercraft rub on that I used. the pink in between the torn paper is a Tattered Angels stamp using Luminarte Silks in pink grapefruit. I wasn't kidding when I said I'm using it on everything.
