The Scrapbook Garden - Smile Jaqi

This is my 1st design for the Scrapbook Garden kit 4

This month each designer has a weeks showcase , one
item each day and this week is my week so there will be a post each day to
show the pages ive made with this months kit.
I started with this gorgeous 12 x 12 Glitz Design Afternoon Muse
paper named Polka .
The colours are gorgeous my photo doesnt do it justice.

I had the idea to use only half of the paper
i took some Bazzill French Vanilla 12 x 12 cardstock
and layed some sequin waste down one side.
I used a double width to create a wider area.
I joined it so that it made a pattern down between the 2 layers
if you want a continuous pattern you need to lay the sequin waste
up a hole so that it runs alternate dots when finished.
I used a selection of distress inks in colours that blended
with the polka paper

Next i added my polka paper
I coloured some thickers letters with distress ink
and added some stickles glitter glue to give it a little sparkle
I used a card form my own stash with 'Happy times'
on it but added some thickers flowers coloured
in the same way as the title
I stamped a doll border on some french vanilla cardstock
using one of the distress inks id used to colour the
sequin waste, i used this to tie in the fact i have a doll in my hand
in the picture.
I punched out a few flowers and inked those also

I cut my journalling slighlty shaped as i
thought it helped to soften it on such a pastel layout

And thats it ........

Im really please with it, as always lovely papers to work with
and the colours were fab.

Why not pop over to the Scrapbook Garden and have a look at the range of
papers  and other goodies they are lovely.

Once again Thank you for stopping by and I hope you are able top pop
back each day this week and see what else ive been up too.
