It's reveal day for us at The Paper Mixing Bowl and this is my take on the recipe for February. I am such a lover of all things fall so this pallet is heaven to me and so easy to create with. I have used 4 pics of my husband when we was a child, one of which has he and his father. The resemblance in him compared to our son is uncanny sometimes. As a matter of fact, when I showed this LO to Caden he thought these pictures were of him.
I have titled this "A Glance" and it is followed by the sentiment "my true love". The "glance" makes me think of the generations as the years come and go and how amazing it is to see my son in my husbands eyes. Jerry has been and always will be my true love, my first and last love. We dreamed of our children together more than 20 years ago, and here we are after so many years apart with an amazing son, a blended family and to many crazy days to count.
The pictures are resting on what is supposed to be a book. I have layered the "pages", stamped them with a Prima Stamp with a script writing, distressed the edges and added some Walnut ink to give it a worn and aged look. The various papers are from a past Scraps of Darkness kit that included the amazing Bo Bunny Weekend Market collection. I made the flower at the bottom with a Donna Salazar carnation die, added the eyelash trim underneath for some texture and threw in some Holtz flourish die cuts.
In regards to the "recipe" we have 3 colors, multiple photos, postage related paper, a "love" sentiment, 2 paper clips, layers and flowers. Frosting or flocking was supposed to be a part of this, but it took on a life of it's own as I started creating. All in all, I am so happy with this, maybe because I love my guys so much!! Hope everyone enjoys our reveal and really would love to see you jump in and make a "Red Velvet Cake" too!!
