A Quiet Moment

The second layout I did for today is for another challenge at Let's Get Shabby. This is my first submission although I have been meaning to submit for some time now. In Challenge Four, we are given a sketch. Please go here to see the sketch and the beautiful examples.

Here's my take:








I'm not sure if I get the shabby look right, or if this layout has more of a classic look. But I like it!! And that photo of Nadiah sitting quietly on the swing is just right for the look.

I also added some crackle paint on the white frame to make it somewhat more shabbier. And as always, I love those blings!!

Materials used:
Patterned paper and journal card: 7Gypsies. Alpha stickers: Basic Grey. Chipboard frame: American Crafts. Blings: Prima Marketing. Others: Lace, leather thong, metal flower charm, mulberry paper flowers, glittered wire butterfly, crackle paint.
