After my earlier grim LO and posts, I decided I wanted to make some LO's that make me happy, and both following LO's do just that!
These are a Few of my Favorite Things
This first one I made for the challenge over at "These are a Few of my Favorite Things". While going through the other ladies' entries, I noticed that some of them were planning on making an album out of the LO's created for this challenge site. I thought this was a splendid idea, and decided to make one as well. All my LO's for this challenge site will be 6x12 LO's, a wonderful size to scrap on!
For this LO I used cardboard for the background, a foam flower stamp (with gesso), and a small flower punch ... that's it. A very simple LO, but I love looking at it. The title reads: "for you mama" and the words in black just say "My favorite flowers". Though actually strictly speaking tulips are my favorite flowers, the wild flowers picked just for me by my children are the world's most beautiful bouquet in my eyes.
Scrapping across the Universe
Well, I guess it's obvious I like the look of those stamped flowers huh?! I wanted to create a fresh and cute LO for the challenge over at "Scrapping Across the Universe", nothing too fancy, so I went with a very simple background again.
This is a very old pic of me and my husband from early in the beginning of our relationship ... almost 20 years ago!!! Ah, we look so young *sigh*. And it really was love at first sight for the both of us ...
I drew the birds after finding the images on the net by googling "love birds" ... aren't they the cutest? I used that hearts' T-shirt of Chloë's again, I so love those bright colours. I found some pages out of a book titled "Flirting for the camera" (which you can read just on top of the pic), which I thought suited this pic perfectly. The leaves I cut out and painted a little while ago, but never used them ... I added them now just to add a little extra colour to the LO. Again a very simple LO to make.
I think I might be too late for both challenges ... we'll see, I get mixed up with dates sometimes because of the time difference, but that's okay, I made these just for me. Like I said, they make me happy just by looking at them, and that was my main purpose here.
