Nicola - 10 Things I Love About You ....

Hi everyone
(They say a change is as good as a holiday - well I would rather be typing this from a beach somewhere nice and warm on a holiday really hehehe)
I would like to share a layout I did of  Nicola.
She is My Big Boys Girlfriend (of over 3 years now)
I have to say how lucky I am that Michael has her in his
life and we have her in our family.
I started out with some texture paste and a stencil to add to the background. I gently dry brushed gesso over the top to make it whiter and brighter. I then covered the Dusty Attic Banners in papers along with the Love heart shapes on the
String of hearts frame set 
(I cut the piece to make an oval shape to frame the photo) 

I then added some border punched pieces along the sides of the photos and layered some papers under the banner and at the top of the page 
I painted the String of Hearts frame and the Birds on a Branch piece with Dusty Attic's awesome paint Navajo White and distressed the edges using the edge of my blade.
I have moulded the chipboard to give it some shape 

(seriously if you have not tried the paints you don't know what your missing - it is creamy and thick and easy to use and FAST drying)

I did the same with the little camera
(don't you just love that cute little bird in there ?)

The Journaling I have used the printer and added in
strips around the layout.
1) Your laugh, smile & quirkiness
2) That you are part of our family (my girl)
3) Your cheeky little ways
4) How much you love Michael
5) Your thoughtfulness and understanding
6)Your "Pink" style
7) You work hard and have goals for the future
8) That your my "Criminal Minds" buddy
9) A Dancing Queen extrodinare
10) How happy you always are (makes us all happy)  

In short - I Love YOU xoxo
