"Ooh... La La"

The designer paper used is from DCWV's, Ciao Bella Paper Stack.
I used an Xacto knife to cut the images on the page that would eitherwise be covered, and lifted it up and tucked the photo behind it.
I used a cream lace and used it as a border on the bottom of the photo. Then I lined the top portion of the cream lace with a navy blue lace.

Prima Flowers were placed to cover a portion of the lace and bottom right corver of the photo.
A Tim Coffey acetate Butterfly was then tucked just slightly underneath the flowers.

The Green Flower Vine Applique was then placed on the top right corner of the photo.
2 Button Sparklers by Webster's Pages, was placed on top of the flowers.

The Paper Images were traced over with yellow, green, red, and clear Sickles.

Pearl Swirls by Prima Marketing were placed randomly throughout the layout.
Thickers Word Stickers were used for the "Ooh La La" title.

I used the Tonic Edge Distress Tool on the pictures as well as all of the papers. Then I inked the edges of the papers with Walnut Distress Ink. I used the Tim Holtz, Hardare Findings Die to cut out the decorative chipboard and painted it with Antique Linen Crackle Paint. Then when the paint dried, I inked it with Walnut Distress Ink to accentuate the crackle effect.
Throughout the layout, I tore some edges of the designer papers and used the end tip of a paint brush to curl and add dimension.

Other Items used:
Tim Holtz Film Strip Ribbon
punched out tab to write the date of the picture
Cosmo Cricket, "Lil Man & Snorkel" paper line
Ribbon (Karen Foster line) and a vintage button added to a shipping tag for journaling.
no.3 coin pocket that was stuck behind the smaller photo to serve as the pocket for the tag.
Chipboard bracket sticker
Rub Ons from My Minds Eye
