I really wanted to use the coordinates this week, Michele does such a fantastic job with them, but I got started on this layout and it went a totally different way to what I had first envisaged.
This was the case to crack this week
And here is how I solved it
My youngest who does pole fitness had the opportunity of a 50's style pole photo shoot and I am taking full advantage of the pictures!
I have been slowly doing her an album for her 21st which is in 2 weeks ack!!
and this is layout 20 of 21 the last one will be a picture of her actually on the day itself.
I hope she will like it
Anyways back to this layout
For my Evidence I used
Packet of little bits
Plain card stock
For my Testimony
Here I have a confession to make, for some reason I thought one of the inspiration words was "shine", hence my title and my journaling (which is a note to Poppy that is in the little envelope dangling from the large chipboard star). I have no clue why I thought this but I did lol
I also used the tag on a string prompt
Inside the envelope I wrote a short letter to Poppy telling her to always be optimistic and she will always shine in whatever she undertakes
I made a small shaker packet from a doily and vellum that holds punched stars and sequins. I stitched around the centre with my sewing machine to hold all the bits in place
On the right hand side I layered up another painted chipboard star with some vellum, I love the way it creates a soft shadow behind the star.
I also used a mask and some gesso behind the pictures for some more texture.
Once again I want to say Happy Birthday CSI & thankyou to the great team over there!
