This photo shows how I distressed the "A" with white paint around the edges and added the flowers. There are 3 flowers layered which I Glimmer misted and added the button (flowers/buttons from Making Memories) and the eyelets at the bottom of the "A" are from Making Memories, too.
Here is the backside of the "A" I had a leftover frame from an old baby kit so I added a bow to the bottom corner and a Scripture at the top (clear sticker) I left the side of the frame unattached so that it would be easy to slip a photo into it.
Ah, the letter "B" (I sound like Sesame Street!) Here I used a new technique. The wording at the bottom is a transparency and I painted the backside of it green to match the photo corners (Paper Shapers: Scallops). I saw that technique (painted transp.) on a blog recently and couldn't wait to try it.
I love this little stamp from an All Occasion Kit from Inkadinkadoo (Christmas gift from the kids!). I stamped it on cardstock then used a Zig pen to color in the petals, cut it out and added a tiny pink button. The white paper strip downside the "B" is actually the backside of a hot pink strip from Doodlebug's Paper Frills.
Here is the backside of the "B" and I've used an EK Success corner punch on the cardstock mat corners. Did another painted transparency, this time in pink and added 3 small flower buttons.
(I love this next page, probably because I was winding down.... and it was the last one!!! And if you have read this whole blog, I applaud you!! Thank you cause I know it's long. I hope you'll leave a comment)
The pattern paper had some yellow in it so I choose cardstock to match then painted around the edges with pink and added white dots. The daisy is from an EK punch and I added a green button. I also cut two strips of paper from a coordinating sheet from the line (Nana's Nursery) and made a border. Looks like I cut it off at the bottom when I took the picture.
I wanted to share this last little "delightful detail" I used white embroidery floss (doubled) and tied a bow, used a glue dot to adhere the two diaper pins and used another glue dot to adhere the pink button. Just a fun little embellishment that made me smile :-)
That took quite some time to post (whew!), longer than it' going to take you to read, thank goodness!! I appreciate you looking and I hope I've inspired you in some small way!
And Everything Nice...
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God. Philippians 4:6
