I LOVED the free Hot off the Press papers this month from Scrapbook Magazine's issue 50. So much so, that I couldn't decide which set to use... the greens/purples or the red/black. So I chose BOTH!
These photos were taken when Freya was about 9 months old. I really loved her in this outfit; it was such a beautiful colour on her. She was such a happy baby too and had the most infectious, genuine laugh that you couldn't help joining in with her. For a little bit of definition, I chose to scrunch up the printed background paper and highlight it with a little bit of 'Wisteria' Cats Eye Chalk ink. I used the same technique on the lollipop scalloped flower that I made. I wrapped the page with a some green & white bakers twine which is bang on trend at the moment.
For my second page I chose a photo that I'd printed out with a red colour cast, but which matched the papers perfectly and it was such a lovely photo that I chose to use it anyway. I used Bazzill Swiss Dots in black for some texture and for the red swirls within the printed paper, I used some red Stickles to highlight add that little bit of bling & sparkle. Wrapped with some red & white bakers twine and with some white pen to place some 'faux stitching' gave me the finished article.
