This is just another fast layout about Chloe looking funny and cute. I'm trying to use Basic Grey's sultry line of papers for this layout to give a little feminine look to the page.
Here are the steps.
1) First of used some white acrylic paints and distressed the edges of the purple card stock.
2) All the pattern papers had been distressed using the tear in technique and later inked with distress inks. (tattered rose, shabby shutters, old papers)
3) The photograph had been distressed using the "Using Steel Ruler on Photographs" technique.
4) The hearts and the flowers are cut-out using transparency and outline on the edges using a black paint marker. I've also used a white gel pen to doodle some dots on them.
5) The word "CUTIE" are also hand drawn and cut out from transparency.
6) I've doodled some flourishes onto one of the sultry line pattern paper to create my very own journaling tag.
7) All stitching are hand drawn using a black pen.
I got to say that I love this line from Basic Grey. The colours works together perfectly.

Your creations are breathtaking! I saw one of your layouts on when I was searching for Ranger's products. I'm currently crazy over their products and after seeing your creations, with the embossing, alcohol inks, etc, I'm getting so inspired. Awesome, awesome stuff you're making!
