Clear Scraps. I kept the design of this page fairly simple by utilizing white space & letting the elements of the page shine through.
This would be my newborn son when he was about 2 days old. It's amazing how they change from when they're first born. He's currently a little over 2 months & I can't say he looks the same as in this picture.
The theme of my page is 'My Promise' to him as his mom. My journaling consists of items that I pledge to provide as his mom throughout his life time & as one of the main influential persons in his life. The journaling is meant for his eyes only. Once he's old enough to comprehend I'll let him read it. Maybe by then he'll also let me know if I'm keeping some of my promises or not! :-)
Square Acrylic Border on this page.
To give the border it's texture, I first highlighted the edges of a couple of the squares with a black Sharpie. I then painted the border with orange & yellow alcohol inks. Finally, I dressed up the squares by adding dots of Bisque Liquid Pearls on the corners of each square. A couple of mosaic pieces (some by Prima some from my own stash) were adhered to a few of the square boxes.
Manor House Creations.
For my background I sprayed a couple of quick bursts of RipTide glimmer mist & randomly added dots of Star Dust Stickles.
Small Rectangle Frame which I've covered with patterned paper, inked the edges with Vintage Photo distress ink & dressed up the corners with a couple of Black Diamond Stickles dots. A small corner from a paper white doily was cut & adhered to the inside of the frame.
Square Acrylic Border. You just can't go wrong with alcohol inks when it comes to acrylic--it adds a fabulous texture to it!
As usual, a big thank you to all of you who stop by for a visit.
Enjoy the rest of the week!
