We all make them....you know, New Year's Resolutions. But do we actually keep up with them? I for one am guilty of making them and then not following through, or only doing them for a couple of weeks. I have made only resolution for this year (yeah, right), well one that I am seriously going to try and keep up with that is. That resolution is to be a blogger and post more of my scrapbooking layouts and projects that I complete. I also want to do some tutorials. I do have a lot of layouts that I have done that I have not posted, so I think I will put them on a schedule to post ;o) Boy, can ya'll smell the smoke? That smoke is the wheels in my head turning, lol.
OK well let's get it started. Here is a layout that I completed a while back. This was one of my daughter's senior pictures that I took in 2009. Don't laugh, but it was taken at the Wyoming Territorial Prison. We were on vacation out west, which is where I took her senior pictures. I loved this picture of her looking into the mirror.
I did quite a few different techniques on this. I did a LOT of inking and distressing. I used a Q-tip to "tear" the paper and then I sewed some stitches over the top of it. I also stamped the bird with Tim Holtz Distress Ink. I used an assortment of flowers and bling. On the Mirror Mirror tag I stamped the image and then used stickers to spell out the words. I then took Rock Candy Crackle Paint and painted the tag. Once it was dried I then rubbed Tea Dye Distress Ink into the the cracks of the paint.
I hope you enjoy!
