My sister Liz (with the affectionate moniker of "Lizzie Pooh") has a natural green thumb. I was visiting the family at Easter and the yard was in full bloom already, so I had a good time taking lots of pictures for her. My plan was to make a mini-album for her of the photos, but I got so inspired with the "Colors" layout, I kept driving in that direction and came up with a new layout using the same sheets of paper that I cut the strips from for yesterday's design. I used up a few of her prints, so now I'll have to have those reprinted so I can get to that album - I might even use a similar concept for the album design (when I get around to it).
Here are a few closeups of the layout. I used a Martha Stewart punch for the little butterflies. The large white letters are Thickers. The large butterfly was traced on white cardstock and cut out, then journaled on. I have had that variegated ribbon and the little round epoxy letter that I used to spell "Lizzie's" for awhile now, so they are just part of my mystery stash. I wish I had made the "caterpillar" curvy instead of straight. The background dots were made using a Heidi Swapp stamp and some Pebbles Inc. paints.
Thanks for coming over to take a peek! I'm having more visions of color spectrum arrangements, so I'll see where those ideas take me!
