|I used backing paper purchased at the park.|
I wanted to add as much sparkle to the purple backing paper as possible so I traced over the main pattern with Ranger Stickles "Star Dust'. The photo doesn't do the sparkle justice as there was a big storm today and natural light was not an option for taking the photo! I recently purchased a WRMK Sew Easy and have been wanting to use it for two weeks. I was very disappointed and it is NOT so easy to use. At first I was going to use the pendant and have it hanging on the page like a banner ... but it wouldn't even make the holes in Bazzill! I managed to get the large loop to work, but I still had to go over it with a piercing tool to actually make the holes as all I got were marks. I am not a huge fan of hand sewing so although I pierced a 12in border, I only stitched 3 loops! But after all that effort I was going to use it on this page somewhere, or else! LOL It became part of the title along with a sticker from the park pack.
I love to make my own embellishments and although the green flower is from Prima, I made the purple ribbon flower myself. It is easy to do using the Clover Bow Maker. I used the middle size in the small pack and this is the first time I used a wire edged ribbon (It was the only one in my stash that matched). I do love the effect of ribbon on a page.
The flower border is a Martha Stewart punch and the 'believe' is a chipboard word from Dusty Attic. The other bits came from my stash and the 'Fairies' was cut on my Cricut and then stickled with 'Star Dust'.
I am very happy with the way this one turned out and it still co-ordinates with the one of the boys. It is rare for me not to journal, but as all of these photos are from the same holiday, I don't feel I need to repeat myself just so that jounaling appears on each page.
Those are the Tinker Bell photos done, now I think I might start tackling the 50's Prime Time cafe shots. Now there is a story worth telling :-)
