The stickles looks a lot better IRL, just could not get them to photograph the way I wanted them - sigh!
Ruth got permission from Magga Mjuka to use a sketch that she designed, check out her work on her blog Here or her gallery in Scrapbook.com here!
This has to be one of the most busiest pages that I have done, and it was fun!
I decided to use different shades of pink cardstock to make the base. All card edges, photo edges etc have been inked. I cut 2 photos into circles, I then used some clear plastic into the 3rd circle as I wanted it to be transparent like bubbles. I used a circle journaling stamp on the plastic and used a peel off marker to write the journaling, and as usual made a mistake, at least future generations will know I am not perfect, lol
I stamped some flourishes and then used a whole lot of flowers, when I was finished the bottom flourish had all but disappeared, so I re-stamped that flourish. Next came stickles, everywhere all along the flourish lines, on some of the brads, etc
My line of brads at the bottom went a bit wonky, but hey I am like that anyways, lol
I used self adhesive pearls around the top photo. I used a substance like liquid pearls to add blobs to some of the petals. Lots of crystal gems, some glitter brads, a brad with a butterfly that I stickled (bottom left flower).
The pink butterfly I got from dismantling a hair bobble that was got in Claire's Accessories. A dragonfly that I can't remember buying, which also got stickled.
The title was done with rub-ons.
Some pics of the flowers and flourishes in more detail.
