These pictures of my daughter riding her three wheel bike,
with her new pink heart shaped bucket, I took earlier this month
when it was nice and sunny. We where going to visit the
girl next door for Sofie to play with.
The house in the background is where we live now.
Its VERY orange, but cosy. I love the area around our house,
see the old dirt road, I get all sentimental and remember how
it felt running on roads like that in my bare feet as a child.
You know I`m a cardmaker, I rarely try layouts anymore
because I just cant do it right, I feel.
It never gets the way I want it. I guess I need other kinds of embellishments
to decorate layouts. An excuse to shop?
This time I got so inspired by Ingvild Bolmes challenge
at Scrappehuset. She want to see us use a series (2+) of images,
and one is the background, and the other are cut outs,
and comming out of the image. Then we are to embellish
to make the area around fit with the images.
I have loved that style for a while, with the cut out
pictures and making the LO look like a fantasy world,
so I just had to try.
And look at this. Normally I use some sort of amazing paper,
and then I cover it all up with flowers. This time:
No patterned paper, and no flowers...
I think something is wrong with me!
Here is another one of my problems in regards of doing layouts.
I do not have a photo printer! But I really wanted to make this,
so what do a scrapper do? We take what we have.
So the images are simply regular copy paper.
I used a nest with eggs and branches with leaves from Prima.
The letters are from American Crafts and Loopy Lou.
I used a doily, a couple of tags, some buttons, a tag envelope,
and a piece of cardboard from packaging.
The butterflies, twine and stars are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
The hanger is from Tim Holtz.
I also used a couple of zipper-thingies,
and some acrylic paint with some magic mesh as
