Simple Pleasures

Yippee it is Saturday, and I got to play with all my new Prima goodies that I bought yesterday J I am going to submit for their design team and this might be one of the submissions. All of my friends at Swirlydoos have persuaded me, so I will give it a shot!  I have used the Botanical Collection for this layout. I distressed all the layers and added lots of goodies. The photo is my daughter in law and grandkids, what a bunch of sweeties they are. I had to do quite a bit of editing on this photo. It was really dark and full of shadows to start with.



In this close up you can see the masking that I did in the back ground, and the distressed layers. I used some Prima packaging under the Say it with Crystals and tucked in a Prima doily in the distressed areas.

In the flower cluster I used lots of different Prima flowers and some chippys from the Botanical Chipboard Journaling Stickers. The leaves are also Prima.

I did some water distressing and inking beside the photo mat and tucked in another doily and chippy.

In this close up you can see all the layers of distressing and masking.

This is a side shot of the flower cluster.
