Whoohoo! Who can resist a Shona layout? The queen of textures and layers has posted a Build a Page Tutorial at Flying Unicorn..go take a look!
I grabbed all the Prima Almanac I had left-LOL and created this.I used the gesso as well and inked the stencil prior to using the gesso to give it shadowing. I was lucky enough to have 2 last doilies in the same size! I added a Recollectins ribbon and glossed and blinged out my butterflies.
["Blingyflies" my DD called them] :)
I loved the 3D look of this page and the banners-so fun to make! The pic is my Mom and my daughter and neice,Vivi-how gorgeous is my Mom? She's still got it!
