A New Year's Resolution...

We all make 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!
