These are the photo's I used on my LO. They are of Jacobi, taken by her mother Kelly,who is a amazing photographer. Jacobi just started Kindergarten & still hates wearing cloths & shoes!!!
Free to be ME!!!
You really should visit Kellys gallery here: Welcome to Kelly Michaluk Photography | Dauphin | Manitoba | Canada, her gallery is amazing!!!
On the outside squares, of the garden tile frame, I used picket fence crackle. Once that dried I rubbed in some green chalk. I cut out 1.5 inch squares,inked the edges brown,then glued them to the squares (inspired by the patchwork dress.
On the leafy part of the frame,I applied clear versa mark,then while that was still wet I rubbed in 2 different colors of green chalk...
I did the same treatment to the ATC frame....
I love to distress & hand stitch on my LO's. When I am done my stitching, I will distress more with my finger's....
I used Bolivian Blue LuminArte on the Alpha...
The stencil used is from TCW. I first used molding paste & when that dried I applied a few shades of glimmer mist using a brush.....
Jacobi is so cute, you will see her in more of my up coming LO's. Thank you so much for taking the time to look....Rachelle
