Curly Top

This is another layout for my friend Jessica's scrap album. Her Mom gave me some photo albums to go through for ideas and this picture just screamed "Scrap ME!"

This layout was done using the K & Company line of paper from Tim Coffey. I love the weaved texture on this line. The papers go together beautifully and seem to coordinate with almost every color imaginable!

I used cardboard under the photo and under the outer circles to give the 3D effect I love so much. In doing this however, it does make it difficult to put the layouts in books. It can be done, but very carefully! It also helps to buy albums that have an expandable outer binding (one that slides to make it larger).

I used the pleated paper technique again on this one as well. you can find a tutorial on this here,...

The flowers were punched using the Retro punches in Whale of a Punch and in medium sizes.
I used a gel pen to outline the petals and dot the centers. I also used Tim Holtz Distress ink to ink the centers for depth.

Thanks for the visit and come back real soon!
