This beautiful little boy belongs to our friends, Tim and Terri. I've made this layout as a gift for them. Tim is a wonderful photographer and took this photo when William was just a few days old. The background paper is kraft cardstock. I cut a 10.5 inch black frame. I doodled a white line on the black border then a black line outside the border. I also added a few random stitches to the black frame. I used two border punches for the bottom borders and then highlighted the edges with a gold leafing pen (as well as the wide gold strip on the black punched border). The journaling strips were done in Word by layering different text blocks with the main background in black so that the writing could be white. The ribbon is black/white sheer ribbon. The red photo corner is something I did with alcohol inks on photo paper, using shades of red and touches of gold. Last but not least, I added a few round brads and a couple of heart brads.
