Let Your Girl Shine!

Darlene has made a wonderful layout based on a sketch by Julie Bonner (Thanks Julie for always sharing your sketch talent)for us to see this month with her little dollbaby. So pretty! So shiny! I think most little girls love anything that has glitz involved :) Read on to hear what Darlene has to tell us about the making of her layout...

A challenge set by fellow IIG gal, Vanessa, a few weeks was to use the colors aqua/teal blue, lime green, black, and white, to use 2-3 flowers on the layout, use some kind of glitter/sparkle, and lastly to use the title of a song from the 50's or 60's as the title of my own layout. Sounds like a challenge right!? It was so fun putting together all of these elements on a single layout.

I enjoyed these colors together so much! The brightness and sprinkles in the background paper made me feel happy while I was making it. :) I handstitched the sewed border around the big circle with a mix of white and blue thread.I thought the thickness and varying colors of the thread showed really well on this. I have not yet decided if I will fill in the strips of journaling just yet- I might need to search for the perfect poem first. :) I used a wonderful sketch by Julie Bonner to create the overall design for this layout.
