June Mini Page Swap

This is my pages for the June Mini Page swap hosted by Bona from Keep on Scrappin. It was such a fun and hard challenge, but I'm pleased with the way it turned out. The challenge was to use Graphic 45 paper and make a 4"x4" mini page, we were to use lace and Roses. My page design was Sweetheart of Mine.

This is the front page, I used gold acrylic paint on the edges, Glimmer mist a doily with tea rose, made the rose 'Tim Holz' style, well I try ed, I love pearls and jewelry so I made a mini pearl necklace. It was definitely inspired by the paper, its so vintage girly.

This is the back. I made some pockets for tags, and crackled on the side. I used two types of lace layered over each other. This paper had so many gorgeous images.

This my tag, I stamped it with a stamp that says 'hope' and the pained metallic gold over the whole tag, it dried a bit and then wiped some if it of with a wet wipe. Just a little experiment.

Lastly my rabbit Stewi wanted to be part of the challenge so he ate a good bit of one of my gorgeous pages, here is the evidence. He loves paper.

Thanks for stopping by, hope you feel inspired and please leave a comment.

June Tag Swap

Hi Everyone my June tag swap that I did with Arlene http://butterflykisseswithlove.blogspot.com/ is done and I had such a great time
doing them.

I made a vintage kind of post card, I used a bit of crackle paint (my favourite at the moment I try to crackle every project) and distress the edges. I love this vintage Woman it just feels like she is saying 'Bonne Journee'.
There is a little Eiffel Tower charm at the top of the pearl string.

This is the back I've put in a pocket for a tag.

This is my attempt of Marion's Lace flower, she did a tutorial on her show A Piece Of Craft.
This is the link to her show, http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/5841747. Mine needs a bit of practise still.
I dyed them a bit in rooibos tea (a south African Tea) so give them a bit of a red tea dye look, and the glimmer mist them to give a bit of sparkle.
Thanks for stopping by.

My First Mini Album
