Baby Liam Layout


My sweet baby bird...I have had this layout in my head for a while so it was so satisfying to get it out and see it on paper!  As you know my sweet baby bird is now 6 so this page is WAY overdue!  LOL

I made this sweet layout with the February Bad Girls Couture kit and it was perfect for this page!  As I mentioned to you before that when I see zig zag stitching it reminds me of old linens so it was a no brainer that I would include them on this layout for Antiqued Friday.  I also did some hand cutting on the Crate Paper for "Liam" and then stitched over it, giving it a vintage appliqué feeling.

I used a Prima stencil from a previous kit and my Bad Girls Couture Molding Paste to make the textured designs and then rubbed on some gold paint after it all dried.  You also see I did a lot of distressing along the papers edges with a distressing tool and inked everything with a brown stamp pad.

I used some clear crackle medium to make a crazed, antiqued effect that kinda reminds me of vintage china once rubbed with some brown ink.  I topped it all with a distressed Prima flower, inked with brown ink and rubbed with gold acrylic paint.
