Layout of my Beautiful Mother

Sometimes I still want to pick up the phone and call my Mother.   It is hard to believe that she has been gone for two years.   Mom, I think of you daily!


Mom layout using SEcret Garden

This layout was made mostly from the Graphic 45 Secret Garden 12×12 paper pack.  I wanted a frame around the layout so I cut out the frame from a very busy page and laid it over a more neutral paper.

To make the layout more interesting, i cut out three of the flower images and used glossy accents to make them look like enamel embellishments.


I did not like the flowers that I made from the paper, so I resorted pulling out some Anna Griffin flowers.   I might have gone overboard on the flowers, but heck, they are just so pretty!!!

To make the other flowers POP I used that awesome clear Wink of Zella pen.  I love it, it is like stickles but with a brush!!!   The ribbon is a handmade crinkled seam binding I made some time ago.  I love making my own crinkled seam binding.  I use either Sprinklers by October Afternoon  or Glimmer Mists by Scattered Angels.  I have even made them using easter egg dyes.   To be honest, I don’t remember what I used on this ribbon!!!!  I also have very tiny pearls on the frame.  you cant really see them in the photo unless you click on the photo to make it larger.  But I know they are there.
