Little Dragon

I finally used my Pink Paislee Bayberry Cottage papers!

The photo shows my younger DD pointing to a dragon sculpture, taken in Sentosa. She tends to "associate" with dragons as she's born in the Year of the Dragon in the Chinese calendar, hence the title - Little Dragon.

I distressed and inked the edges of the papers and photo for added definition, and then mounted the photo using 3D pop-up dots, for dimension. I hand cut the flourishes from the Flower Garden paper, and also adhered it to the layout with more pop-up dots. I always like lots of dimension to my layouts.

The hand-cut flourishes are so beautifully elaborate that they can stand on their own without any further embellishments, so the only thing I added here is the Ribbon Pleat, also from Pink Paislee's Bayberry Cottage Collection.
