Sunflowers - Practical Scrappers Button Challenge and Just Buggin' 18 - Shadow Cuts
At Practical Scrappers, the challenge for this week is to use buttons.....my favorite thing. Used one of my favorite pictures of Kati, taken on her first birthday. Using that great denim patchwork dress for inspiration, the layout kind of made itself. I used squares of different blue/brown/yellow prints and double layered them with pop dots. Added a sunflower frame and border as well. The sunflower is from Walk in My Garden......cut at shadow, regular, and blackout. I put pop dots between the layers fo the bigger sunflowers. Everything is inked with Cat's Eye Chestnut Roan. Used buttons for centers....on the big sunflowers, I used the center from the cartridge cut in brown. Added some chipboard swirlies here and there..........and some leaves for filler. This was my first time using my new Expression.....and how great it was to put "fill the page" for 60 leaves!
