more creating!


more fun with my kit.
This one is a page for my Emy who really is growing up so very beautifully. I could have filled the entire page with writing, but sometimes a little says a lot y'know what I mean? The stickers say " you grow in true beauty"
and that she does; inside and out. She really is a gift to us all every day.

My process for this page was a little bit different than usual....possibly could be considered a bit backwards, but it came together in the end.
-I started ripping the basic grey paper into little torn flower circles and layering it with the fancy pants pink felt ( note: you can email Tricia if you want a sheet of the pink felt added to your kit order, it is not specifically pictured on the site), layered it with the Autumn Leaves vintage buttons, and the fun stacker buttons from the kit and fastened them all together

- I coiled some stainless steel hardware wire into stems and ripped patterns out of some of the sassafrass lass papers for trim. Then made "grass" with the paper from the included 12x12 cardboard

- Once I was done rolling with all of that ( it was kind of a creative explosion that all happened in about a half hour...got to love that!) then I had to find a photo or story to go with the design I had started. It is definitely easier for me to design around a story or photo that I have in mind ahead of time than to find a way to fit it in later, but it is fun and refreshing to to change it up sometimes! I always love that there is no wrong way when it somes to creativity :)

here is a closer peek at my "grass" and wire stems
