When I first looked at this Valentine Gilly by Prairie Fairy, I was going to make a card. But as soon as I got her coloured in, a scrapbooking page came to mind. Even though it was past my bedtime, I ran down to my craft room to start putting it together! I've been hoarding this Fairy Flora Patterned Paper by Prima for a couple of months. I thought it would be perfect for this sweet layout!
As I was thinking about challenges I immediately thought of challenge at Prairie Fairy Fridays. 'For a sweetheart' was easy to follow since this layout is for my daughter's scrapbook album. The next is Moxie Fab World's Trigger Tuesday. My main inspiration from this week was the colour! I love those soft coral, rose and red colours! Last (but certainly not least) is the challenge at Simon Says Stamp - Love is in the air! This layout is all about love!
For the details. all the edges (except white) are sponged with Stampin' Up's Cameo Coral or Old Olive ink. I used white embroidery floss to stitch along the edge of the inner square and another line just outside of it. Gilly is coloured with Copics (colours listed below). To add a little more interest and detail, I cut out some flourishes with my Tim Holtz Sizzix Die Elegant Flourishes and placed them around the edges of the layout.
Here's a close-up of Gilly. My absolute favourite part of her is her cute, little, slouchy socks! Here are the Copics I used:
Hair: E99, E97, Y21 Skin: E21, E00, E000, R20
Dress & Heart: R29, R27, R24, R20 Socks: YR21, E000
Staff: E99, E35 Wings: R20, E000 Glasses: R27 Freckles: E97
Have a wonderful day!
