This Adorable Little Face

I'm back with another Lucy layout!  Her face is always so full of expression! 
What really makes her even cuter is that she is tiny.  I can cup my hand around her entire head!
She is absolutely irresistible!

What better paper to use than some that's almost as irresistible as Lucy! 
Blue Fern Studios Serendipity collection has got to be the most gorgeous papers I've ever seen.
I chose to use the blue page in the collection to bring out Lucy's gorgeous eyes - perfect match!

I recently bought Spellbinders dies Astoria Decorative and decided to use all three in the design. I love them!

Because this paper already has random edge printing of lace in navy blue, I decided to stamp with the darkest navy blue ink I have, which is one of most favorite ones called "Night Sky".  Check out the exquisite detailing in the Blue Fern Studios Arcadia Textures stamps!!  WOW! They are absolutely unreal!

Because the Night Sky navy ink color looks so fantastic in the stamps, I decided to use it to ink chipboard letters for part of the title; then applied Ranger Crackle Accents; and when completely dry, rubbed with Gold wax to bring out the crackle.  I also edge inked the die cuts, as well as all around the edge of the entire layout.

I decorated the page with Petaloo cream colored hydrangeas...
 
and butterflies, changing their white pearl bodies to dark brown.

I painted and edge inked the Blue Fern Studios Organic Vine chipboard; then divided it for my design.
I've got to get this one again so I'll have it for future layouts!
 
Thanks for stopping by!  More of Lucy to come in future layouts....no doubt! >^..^<
Have a great week!  Lisa : )

  2. Gorgeous, Lisa! Love the stamping and the die-cuts (I bought those Astoria dies too!) and the crackle rubbed with gold wax on the chipboard letters! And of course, Lucy is as adorable as always!

  3. This is so gorgeous Lisa! The colors are so beautiful, and a perfect match for Lucy's eyes. I didn't realize that Lucy was so tiny :) The stamp is awesome, I have to check out the Arcadia Textures. Great job!

  4. This is so darn cute!! I always love your Lucy layouts! Well, I love them all...but Lucy just adds that little spark of cuteness and fun with her mischievous "bad" face! It looks like she was relaxing here, maybe bathing, but sees you and is like, "I'd play though." LOL
