Scrapware All things Girly!

Hi, Renee has the honour of hosting the Scrapware blog this week.
The post is dedicated to all things girly! Who doesn't just love to scrap a girly, girl layout or off the page project? Below is Renee's beautiful layout "backyard beauties". Some gorgeous pics of her two daughters, Viola and Charlotte and my daughter- Milly in their backyard.

The scrumptious Scrapware I have used on this layout is:
AZ10 Mini Antique Lowercase
CH131 Flourish Shelley

Renee roughly embossed the letters using a fine blue powder and ink to give them a shabby feel.

The flourish was a little bit more tricky but totally worth the effort! Renee painted the entire flourish with a pink shimmery nail polish and placed a recycled piece of white tulle over the top and into the wet polish. Once the polish had entirely dried she then trimmed of the excess tulle and added some pearls.
Here is my Girly LO.
I painted the Scrapware Do-Hickys with white gesso, covered them with dimensional magic, then sprinkled them with Vintage glitter glass, then leave to dry. Vintage glitter glass is an awesome way to give any of your Scrapware chippies some added texture!

A close up of the Do-Hickey just give the page that romantic and whimsical feel - just love them!

I used: CH339 Do-Hicky 5 AZ10 Mini Antique Lowercase

Please go over to the Scrapware blog to check out Georgia's, Taryn's and Nat's Beautiful work.

That's All Folks! thanks Gilly ox
