In May this year I had the desire to create a shabby chic/vintage layout with all handmade embellishments. Sometimes I love spending relaxing time making flowers and butterflies. It is so rewarding for me. I found this adorable colorized photo on Pinterest. She seemed to be daydreaming, so that is how the layout title came to be. I absolutely LOVE the Prima "Fairy Belle" collection. I hope that they come out with another similar line because these papers are just gorgeous!
To give this layout a vintage feel, I used a "cracks" stamp and dotted the page with dark brown 'espresso' (very dark brown) acrylic paint using a fan brush.
The white lace was recolored with a light spraying of the beautiful Lindy’s Starburst spray "Bodacious Blush".
