"Girly-Girl Layouts" with Kelly Foster

Good morning! And...happy Friday!!! 
I hope you have some fun weekend plans - maybe some creating? If so, I hope to inspire you a little bit...
I have two super girly-girl pages to share today!


I love this picture of my little girl...she looks to me just like a porcelain doll...ivory, smooth skin, sweet pink lips, and a frozen expression to go with it - lol!
Anyway, I wanted to go for a super feminine and soft look here. I started with the Rose Wreath, giving it a good coating of gesso, then let that dry.

Atop the gesso, I randomly dabbed Distress Ink and Distress Paint, then sprayed with water, dried, and repeat. The colors weren't quite where I wanted them, so I went in with my favorite chalk inks and added the green, and a bit more color here and there on the flowers. I think this is such a beautiful "statement piece" for any layout, and i based the entire design of my page around it!

For my title, I simply painted the word "adorable" from the Good Vibes Set white with a few coats of gesso so it would really stand out.

Another ultra- feminine page..this one a bit more bright and wild! The colors I chose were based off of my photo 100%. I started with "Love Letters" from the Blue Fern Garden papers, and then cut and layered pieces from "Calling Cards", "In Bloom", and "Picnic". Much of this did end up being covered up, however, by my photo, chipboard, and media.

Next I took the Quatrefoil Panel and have used it in three ways. I cut a large rectangular piece of the panel and it is entwined in my paper layers beneath my photo. Next, I cut a few strips from the panel and added those here and there. I also popped out a few of the "inner pieces" of the panel and scattered them and added them to clusters as well. The panel pieces were all given a coating of white embossing powder, then painted with watercolor paints and Gelatos.

To ground my title, I added a section of one of the Heart Borders, and used the word "Love" from the Valentine Word Set for a simple title...once again painted white.
