Little Moments


One of the rare photos I took with my girls as I'm usually the one behind the camera! This photo was taken last Christmas Day in Australia, up the beautiful Blue Mountains.



I used My Mind's Eye's Lost & Found 2 papers and journal tags for the layout, embellished with Prima flowers and blings, and Dusty Attic die-cut chipboards.



I coated the DA chipboards with Rock Candy Distress Crackle Paint for some texture, and then brushed some Black Soot Distress Ink over them for a darker shade.



I then pleated the lace at the bottom of the photo to give it added volume, and did lots of layering with the flowers and tags using 3D foam dots for greater dimension. I also added foam dots to the framed photo, to let it stand out.



Some close-ups ...

sooo very beautiful! Love all the layers and rich decorations. Dimension is superb! I just can't wait to go to Australia in two weeks (where I hope to find some DA products, besides enjoying the vacation)
