Hello! Michelle here today to ask you
Don’cha LOOOOVE babies? Well here are two projects featuring those most imortant members of society.
First up is a great page from wonder Gauche Girl Chrissy.
“This is my niece, Scarlett. She’s not cross-eyed all the time. She only does it when the camera flash goes off! Sooooo my sister, in true smart-ass form, photo shopped a butterfly onto her nose and said,
“There! Now she has a reason to be cross-eyed!” When I saw this photo for the first time, I laughed so hard, I cried! Scarlett is such a ham to begin with and she’s only 14 weeks old!”
Other materials used where Sassafras Lass paper, Pink Paislee “mistables” paper, Cosmo Cricket alpha stickies and a sharpie to make those great black outlines- LOVE the crossed corners with tiny dots- GREAT detail.
The second page is one I made a while ago as an experiment. I had seen many monochrome layouts but was a little intimidated because I kept wanting my whites to “match”. One day I just said the heck with that and had SO MUCH FUN!
I used the Wedding Night White Mixed Media Color Kit as well as some white punchinella, Maya Road straight pins and banner, corrugated clouds from Jillibean Soup, a doily I bought during our family trip to Italy and the prize – an Instax print of Lola SMILING- something that never happens as she has learned to look down in self defense when she sees a camera pointing her way.
The Fuji Instax Mini camera has only 2 aperture settings “light” and “dark”. That usually means over-exposed images from my particular camera so I’ve learned to use it only during cloudy weather or for interior close up shots. The newest model deems to have more control over shutter speed but I’ll believe that when I see it.
Gauche actually has a great kit for those of you looking for some baby themed vintage paper goodies. Check it:
Well then, thanks for patiently reading through my gratuitous baby post- I promise there will be many more to come- only the funky Gauche product used to make it will change.
