Scrapbook Page

I think it's been well over a year since I made a scrapbook page!   In 2014 I was going to make a monthly journal hybrid scrapbook and never got it started.  So in 2015 I'm jumping in with a 6x6 inch mini scrapbook that will be for my two grandchildren.  This page is for my granddaughter.

Crafty Secrets digital freebies used:  Valentine paper, calendar, and 10 Things I Love;
Crafty Secrets Bedtime Kids digital set --kid

To color the kid, I started with Ranger Distress Markers for a water color look but they didn't blend on my special photo paper so I covered some spaces with Copics which work well with this paper. Usually you can't mix water with alcohol but the two types of markers didn't seem to care on this paper.

I fussy cut and then started layering with some stuff from my stash.  I layered with foam adhesive where needed to kee it dimensional.

I always outline fussy cut images with a black Sharpie and outline my papers with matching Distress Markers.

I added pink Wink of Stella to some of the flower petals and to the ribbons and shoes on the kid.
