Warning: this is the first time I am undertaking a scrapbooking project, so not sure my process is right. I am just going with what-works-for-me. :) Before making full fledged pages and layouts, I’ve decided to put together various embellishments. Here’s first set of princess attire:
All these are made from paper.
The dress: I have used thick pink color paper like the one used in greeting cards. (Do you call it cardstock?) It’s a simple evening gown cutout embellished with stones and white paper roses. I used the simple and funÂ tutorial by Dozi DesignÂ for making the roses. Grey and pink design is added later on the image using, what else? Photoshop! :)
For our princess’s make up we have (oh my I can feel the same excitement as I did when me and my friends used to dress up our dolls):
Mirror: Again I cut the same think pink sheet (actually this is a recycled sheet from some brochure) to the shape of a compact mirror + face powder thingie. On the inside I’ve stuck a round foil paper to act as a mirror and a round off white colored paper to act as the face powder. Tiny glittering start on top are a work of PS.
Lipstick and comb: Pink paper and handles wrapped in foil paper.
Shoes (my fav.): Pink and dark pink colored paper cutout adorned with stone and a thick thread bow.
The grey swirls are again PS.
I drew a tiny tiara and glued the thick thread tracing the line. Embellished in between the loops with pink and white stones.
The bracelet is a simple ring adorned with stones.
Earrings and pendant are again tiny metal rings from my jewelry chain maille collection on which I’ve hot glued matching pink and white stones.
I then took my hybrid scrapbooking project (is there even such a thing?) to another level. Combining these images with my older princess’s snaps, I made the following layout:
What do you think? Would you to create something like this with your baby’s pictures? Is there some way I can help? Do let me know :) As always, thanks for dropping by @ my e-place.
