This is a layout of my niece, Zara.  I did this for my brother for Father's Day.  I had done one of this same photo with G45 papers and thought he would enjoy this one!  I used the Pink Paislee Butterfly Garden Collection for this project.  Beautiful and whimsical papers!!!  Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy!!  I hope you all have a great Memorial Day Weekend, go do something fun for yourself and your family!!!!!

Here's a couple of close-ups of Zara for you.  I just loved the Pink Paislee papers and embellies for this one, beautiful collection!!

Here's a couple of photos of what I did to the reverse canvas.  I fist painted in with Americana Premium Acrylic Paint (Butter) that you can get at Michale's.  I then used some Moon Shadow "Mystic Malachite" and sprayed some randomly on the frame.  I also applied some of  Tim Holtz Distress Ink (Vintage Photo) to distress the corners alittle.    I also added some Crackle Accents from Ranger at the very end.  I then took the chipboard gears that I got from  and inked with some ColorBox Moss Green & then stamped in gold with a small flourish stamp that I had.  The moss in the corners I adhered with some spray adhesive.  I had some small springs that I also  inked with the same Moss Green.  The bolts that are near the photo are from Michael's and come in a package from Industrial Chic.  The barbed wire chippies are from Dusty Attic.  Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy!!
