My mom had asked me for a framed photograph of Chloe to display at her house sometime ago and I had not done anything for her. Since mother's day is just round the corner, I just thought maybe instead of just a framed photograph, why not do a mini layout with Chloe's photograph and frame it for her as a mother's day gift.
My inspiration for this 8x8 layout is from a friend's layout. She had done a very good job on hers and it had inspired me to try and create one.
Since it's going to be a framed layout, I would want the attention drawn to the photograph more than the other embellishments there. Therefore, I've used a larger sized photograph in this layout.
I've only used some small embellishments to decorate the layout. I've punched out some flowers from coordinated pattern papers and later did a little doodling around it. To add some dimension, I've used some sequins and foams to decorate the flowers. I've also add in two foam butterflies which are covered in shinny powders in the layout.
To soften the overall look of the layout, I've inked on all edges and chalked on the title. Hope that my mom likes this Mother's Day gift. May all mothers have a Happy Mother's Day!
