Rounding off with my last three layout from the six total that I completed last weekend...
My oldest is 17 this year and this is one of my favorite pictures of her this year. She got lucky and got my eyes, their color tends to look different depending on the color clothes she wears and they are so bright and full of life....hence the bright eyes title.
This one, I used some really old 8.5x11 pattern paper, I stamped on the backside so I could do the fold down for a little more color. I punched the hearts, dropped some watered down acrylic paint, dropped some perfect pearls mist. I painted a paper doilie and sewed on some tulle.
My Sonja is a freshman this year, this is a picture I took of her on the first day, she is doing this frown but actually it's not a frown, this is her so called smile, really? If you ask me it sucks but hey what can I do.
For the Freshman part of the title I took translucent velum and attached some letter stickers, then painted the navy blue color then removed the letter sticker. I wanted the reverse effect here and I think it turned out pretty cute, if I do say so myself. lol I added some tags, strips of paper in the top corner and at the bottom of the photo I used, a random Fish (get the symbolism), I aged a # 9 playing card.
This a picture I took of my daughter for the Volleyball season, the ones the photographer that they school used was not good, so I had to do my own. She's got a passion for this sport and she really does love playing.
I used an old pattern paper, I put a strip of zebra duct take down and I took apart a flower from a broken headband (I'm recycling). Added a little bling, tied it with a ribbon and stuck a feather on it.
