This month's second challenge is a salute to embossing. Embossing folders, heat embossing, embossing paste, embossing punches, you get the picture. I just know you have some kind of embossing something in that outta control stash of yours. Do a little, do a lot just do it and enter your piece in this challenge, and possibly win a prize :)
My layout features my granddaughter Aelyn when she was a wee little pixie. Literally, she was a pixie for Halloween in 2006. I love this pic of her and decided to go to town with the lovely July Swirlydoo's kit of the month, Celestial Summer. Wow what a kit, it featured Blue Fern Studios gorgeous Ombre Dreams paper line! Perfect for a dreamy fairy fantasy. Lovely Petaloo flowers and these adorable resins from Prima. Off the chain friends!
I've also did a step-out so you can see a bit of the process. Oh, and guess what, my tri-pod has mysteriously returned. I found it in the laundry room, so hopefully soon, I'll be doing videos again.
Here is the finished piece -
I used all the flowers from my kit, as well as some from my stash which I embellished a bit more for effect, The chippie title came in from the alpha chippies in the kit. I did the same thing to the alpha as the heart frame. Gesso, mist then emboss. I used a pretty purple butterfly I bought a couple of years ago at the Scrapbook Expo and the green flourish was bought there too, maybe at the same time! I had a small piece left over and thought it went perfect there. The little resin fairy I used some purple silks acrylic that was in the kit, then gesso'd then glued the wing tips and dipped in glitter.
