Sorry I haven't posted in a while, time gets away from me before I know it. I just completed a LO using one of my favorite paper packs from CTMH it is called "Magnifique". I love all the blue tones. I also used The "Circle of love" stamp set the goes perfectly with it. It has this wonderful image of a peacock and peacock feathers. Here is the LO and I will explain some exciting sites that I also found to get awesome SVG files that you can use with your Cricket or other cutting devices.
I think this LO reflects the stormyness in her eyes that she often has. I also used florabella collection with PSE to enhance the pics still kinda new using the actions and textures. Here is a close up of the Left side.
technique. I also got some of the awesome seam binding that she mentions in her tute!! Its called Hug snug and it is wonderful! The Fence and Hinge that I used came from a really awsome site for SVGs here is the link to Dan's site sure you will find some goodies there as well. I don't wanna forget the free SVG site that I found and used to cut out the back ground as well here is the link to the free SVG blog that I have sumbled across.
The title that says "stormy" was CTMH "Irresitibles eclectic die cuts" they come in white with a already embossed back ground that you can color to your hearts content. I colored mine with Pacifica ink at the top and colonial white at the bottom. The colonial white dries slower so I put that down first. Then sponged in the Pacifica down into the white to blend them in together. I think it turned out pretty cool! Here is a close up of the title.
The Peacock was way fun to do as well!! It is in the "Circle of love" stamp set along with the feathers! Oh and by the way I am gonna issue my first challange to ya.. Try using Feathers in the place of leaves on your next LO using your flowers!! I have seen a lot of feathers appearing in differnet things and on my little shopping trip to Hobby Lobby got me some of them!!! Oh boy do they have all kinds of cool colors and designs on them!! I went nuts on them big time!! Here is a close up of the flower clusters and the beautiful peacock!!
And of course my "Nurses Rose" just fit right in perfectly. Here is the link to the tute.
