Scraplifting The Boss!

I asked Jody aka SpiegelMom if we could scraplift her as part of our Sparklers DT work.  You see, I had my eye on one of her gorgeous layouts... little did I know that half of the Sparklers would pick the same layout to lift!!  Here is Jody's...

Truly stunning!

And here is my take...

 I combined Teal Me Tomorrow, Peacock Strutt and Shabby Chic Christmas sequin mixes with Shimmerz Paints Grape Escape Vibez and 'that paper' from Dear Lizzy's Lovely Day collection.

I tried to add tonnes of tiny details... I've decided I need to add initials to layouts of my nephews as they are fairly similar in looks and little one wears his big brother's old clothes!  I confuse easily!

I drew a version of one of the flowers, translated it into a cut file and cut several from vellum.  Adding these is bumped up the texture of the layout.  It is quite hard to capture how much impact they have on photographs.

I wonder if I will ever stamp a date stamp in a perfectly horizontal line... I doubt it!

I finished off the vellum flowers with a cluster of sequins in the centre.  This turned out to be an excellent way of adhering them leaving their petals free to curl up and add dimension.

I had so much fun with this layout - thanks Jody for the inspiration and the awesome sequins!
