Bling Challenge ........

and whatever other challenge I can fit this into :)

There is so much bling on this page, that you nearly have to wear sunglasses to look at it IRL, also IRL it looks so much better!!!

This is a once in a million shots. Aimee was playing on the floor, I was sat on the sofa, I asked her to smile and just held the camera in front of her, I didn't even look at what I was taking, I was so surprised when I saw this shot! Her eyes are so blue in this photo!!!!

On the purple paint behind the photo there is glitter

Where I have used Crystal Stickles=

Around the edge of the card stock
Where I have torn the pp (patterned paper)
All the flowers on the pp
Over the writing, moon and stars on the overlay
Around the edge of the photo
Around the letter A
On every flower there is a blob/smear somewhere
On the circle brads and star brads in the middle of the flowers
On the star charm

LOL I think I have mentioned everything!

The photo and pp is under the overlay!

The flowers, letter A, swirl and charm are on top of the overlay!

I have dry brushed purple paint on the card stock to use as a matt for the photo! While the paint was still wet I sprinkled some fine glitter onto the paint and left it all to dry! When I put the overlay on the paper the words, moon and stars got lost, so I dry brushed white paint on the underside of the overlay! While I had the paint out I dry brushed around the edge of the photo!

I then used a Precious vellum sticker on the photo as it seemed to fit the page!

The star charm was off a belt that Chloe had which broke and she gave it to me (everyone in my family is now magpie trained, lol). I used a silver brad to cover the hole on the top, put some pva glue on the back of the star, stuck them into place and covered both of them with Stickles!!!

I think that's everything!!! This page originally had some crochet flowers that I had made, for a challenge, but nothing went right last month, I then went off the idea of the flowers so the page above is what happened!

TFL and reading the loooooooong explanation!!!


Edited to say
I can also fit this page into Three Product/Technique Challenge and April Scrap a Family Member-Daughter.

My 3 Techniques are, painting, paper tearing, and homemade embellishments!

The new technique is the bling swirl!

Scrap a family member - daughter - Aimee is 4 and my youngest daughter! Some of my flowers are punched out!

This is such a pretty photo and she looks so grown up!! It would look gorgeous in B&W as well.

Love all the bling I would like to see this LO in real life to appreciate it!

Good luck for the challenges. What about the 3 techniques challenge as well?

Ahhhhhhhhh I had to read the blurb to fully appreciate just how you made this page, I really love the white paint on the back of the transparency. I couldn't work out how you had done that I will definitely be giving that a try, I love the clever ways you have included all the different forms of bling and the cute title of your post made me laugh, talk about multi tasking lol, beautiful photo, love the natural look of it and of course that cute little face TFS XXX
