Here's my entry for the Kaisercraft Saturday Sketches May #2 and also for Scrap it with a Song "I will always love you" by Whitney Houston.
Here's the sketch we were working with this week. To see the entry requirements, etc for Kaisercraft Saturday Sketches, please click here. To see the entry requirements, etc for Scrap it with a Song, please click here.
And here's my interpretation of the sketch....
I just love this picture of my niece Ruth. She was so sweet when we visited her family this day.
After looking at the sketch, I wanted it to be nice and open, not too much fuss to draw attention to how sweet the photo is. I went looking through my stash of Kaisercraft papers and found a really old range called "Mumma Bushka". I think I have had these papers in my stash since I started scrapbooking!! haha!! I thought the colours worked really well with the photo and before I knew it I was piecing my page together quite nicely.
I love the Kaisercraft wooden button flowers and I treaded them with some DMC thread before adhering to my page. I used the blank chipboards letters and inked them to match my page before putting dimensional magic over the top to give a nice glossy "popped out" look. The little black letters I found right in the bottom of my letters box and unfortunately I have no idea where they are from, sorry!
I decided to flip the sketch because of my picture, I wanted Ruth to be looking off the page, rather than at my embelishments, if this makes sense. The other thing I have started doing lately is not only inking around my papers to "soften" them, but also dotting around the edges to give a sort of border. I really like the effect this gives.
We have all heard the song "I Will Always Love You" by Whitney Houston about a million times and I think we all know the words off by heart. I was very tempted to scrap a page of my sweet Hubby, but I decided to have a look at the lyrics, and when I read the Bridge, I thought it would be PERFECT for this page to wish happiness and love to this little girl.
I hope you like my page and until next time, Happy Crafting!
