2012 Artisan Award Winner Blog Hop - Project 2

Welcome to the Artisan Design Teams winning projects blog hop. You should have come from the uber-talented Wendy Weixler. (If you started here, keep clicking the "next" button at the bottom of each post, you'll get back around to all the 10 blogs.)

 I love this picture of my little men and I wanted to create a page that really showcased the picture. With having 3 boys its not very often that I use flowers on a scrapbook page and I was really happy with the way it looked in the end!

For the title I used the First Edition Designer Series paper, one of my favorites! The striped ribbon I pleated and then sewed it down, just to make sure it didn't come apart. The flowers were super easy  to make, I cut them out with the die and then added a few drops of that color to a aqua painter. Once the paper is slightly wet, its so easy to manipulate however you want. Adding the vintage brad in the middle of each finished it off!
