Making Progress...

Welcome back everybody :)

I am still in the process of making an album for one of my friends and feel like I am making good progress. Only a few more pages to go.

For the very first page, I wanted to do something a bit more textured and detailed. It still allows my friend just to insert her desired photo without having to do anything else. Easy!
I had quite a few flowers I hadn't used in a while - some I had never even opened - so out they came and I got busy "flower arranging" :)

The paper used is by Sugar & Spice Studio.
Cardstock, chipboard lettering, paint, pearls, paper leaves and some of the paper flowers by Kaisercraft.
Other flowers by Cre8tiv and Craft Market.
Ribbon by Krafty Savers.
Also tapestry yarn and flowers cut from lace.

Lots of layers and a little bit of shine provided by the glossy ribbon.

I had some small flowers that were perfect shades of purple for this page, but they had a sparkly silver detail that didn't quite suit. I flipped them over and the back side had quite a nice texture so I used them face down. I also cut some of them up into single "petals", one of which you can see in the foreground here.

The chipboard lettering I just tied a little piece of tapestry yarn around each letter and unravelled the ends. A little bit of...something...but not too much :)

It was good fun doing a 12x12 page. Haven't done one of those in quite some time. Well, back to it.

Thanks for stopping by :)
