Adorable Niece

Happy New Year!!! This is my first post this year. I made a layout using my 1.5 months niece. I am such a proud aunty. Lol. As proud as her parents. Lol.

For this one, I am trying to give a soft deamy look with a lot of tiny detail texture. First, a lot of texture on the background using doilies, lace, and stencil (Bo Bunny).  The paper I used is from Blue Fern which is one of my current favorite. I tore all the images along the edge and re-arrange them to frame the photo.

Here a closer look for you to see more details on the background. I used Ranger mat gel medium to glue the doilies and all the lace, then clear gesso everything. I brushed pink paint mixed with gel medium to create the translucent look. Texture paste is from Ranger (another awesome product).

The clock is from Tim Holtz Alteration clock die. Cut a thick cardstock, covered it with texture paste, then dabbed turquoise paint.

I made the tulle flower to match it with the baby headband. :)). Colored the inner part with the same paint and white gesso-ed the outer part. Stick some glass beads to give more texture on the frame.

It was inspired by :
