Me & My Girls

This is what I made with this month's Papermaze Crop Kit. The page was designed by Vanessa and was a great excuse to try the new Ranger Distress Paints by creating a water colour effect.The paint colours were perfect for this photo of Emily, Catherine and me taken on their 21st birthday.

The Background was created with the paint and water and left to dry. The circle was hand drawn with a few dots of Liquid Pearls added here and there.

I cut my five flowers on the Cricut with the Flower Shoppe cart, a random selection of flowers in different sizes until I had enough. These were all cut from white Bazzill. they were then inked with the same colour as one of the paints, but in Distress Ink, and spritzed with water, screwed up, dried out and opened out again. Then they were layered up and a clear dew drop added to the centre. The smaller flowers are spiral flowers which were also cut on the Cricut, and coloured in the same way. Some were cut from a piece of Basic Grey Kissing Booth Lip Lock paper. The leaves were cut from two shades of green Bazzill with Memory Box and Marianne dies.

I inked the Prima butterfly which started off a beige colour. I used my wired twine to made spirals and tucked them in amongst the flowers. The mutli-coloured strips of patterned papers are cut from a sheet of Pink Paisley paper, She Art collection - Soar. The photo mount is cut from Marigold paper from the Ambrosia collection by Bo Bunny.

My title was had written and 'GIRLS' was cut with the Alphalicious cartridge on the Cricut.

Here is Vanessa's original layout:
