using some part of a children's book; illustration, quote, etc.
So I decided to use a quote from J.R.R. Tolken's Lord of the Rings:
The Two Towers. Because it is this beautiful girls, favorite movie.
So I looked up quotes and found this one:
"There is some good in the world, and its worth fighting for."
Now as I look at it on the screen, I realize it is hard to read,
but in person, the wording is just lovely.
Interesting that it is showing up on here this way. Hmmmm.....
This is off a Prima Package. So beautiful.
I cut the triangles in different sizes and layered.
Then I had gotten this kinda crazy idea to cut out a section
of the page and and her pic fit right in there. So I distressed
it by tearing it and staining it and roughing it up with a sand
paper stick thingy, and
Voila! I also haphazardly zigzagged around the edge.
And added a little marker at the bottom that I also
distressed up using Tim Holtz stain.
And here is more Prima packaging.
I mean seriously, so pretty.
I distressed it up with Tim Holtz stain, again =)
and used some Smooch Ink (do y'all remember that?)
I have some in gold and blue. I used the gold and while
you can't really see it here, it is a lovely touch to this hexagon.
And yes the two left pieces are popped up.
Ya know, for interest and all. =)
And a little bling in the center,
because I mean bling makes it all better, yes?
And then I distressed some lace, that I got at a garage sale over
the weekend =) and yep, used more Tim Holtz goodness.
This time in the form of a stamp pad.
And yes, more bling.
And here are those letters.
I distressed them up a little too.
I added Tim Holtz photo corners to this page, diagonal.
I roughed them up with my sanding stick thingy,
and then used Distress stain in Vintage Photo and Picket Fence.
I know. Crazy right? Who knew?
So fun and I loved the results.
So there we go, another challenge done.
And most importantly another picture and memory recorded.
I hope y'all have a.....
Blessed and Beautiful,
Crafty, Kind of Day ~~
