Wide Eyed Wonder

I passed the 1st class of Bad Girls so I'm off to Class 2: Texture and Dimension given by our "teacher", a good friend, Iris Uy.

Phew! This class made me do handstitching again after almost 20 years! For this layout, I used the pictures I took of my newest nephew, Patrick. He's sooo adorable and his eyes are cute as a button! Good thing the materials I already have in my stash matched Patrick's jeans & checkered shirt.

For texture: I used a tag with fabric; added a lace on the flower chipboard & ribbons on tag & as photo corner; embossed the " flower stem"; used a denim pocket of my daughter's old pants (to mimic Patrick's pants)

For dimension: I used buttons, mini wooden clothes peg, chipboard flower & "stem", sewing on doodles then mounting with foam squares; cut out circles on PPs then mount with glue dots; made a transparency frame with acrylic paint on edges. *** Also, I intended to let the flower "hang over" the edge of the paper coz for me, scrapbooking should not really be limited to just 12"x12" or squares or should be whatever your heart desires! :)
Journaling (on tag inside the denim pocket): Patrick, The first time I saw you, I fell in love with your "cute-as-a-button" eyes! Love you! - Tita
