Senior Pic Layout (BOM)

Good morning and Happy Tuesday!  Today, I wanted to share a layout I finally finished.  The picture is of me and my twin's senior pic when we were 17 years old.  I did this layout for the JAFF Jr. online crop we held Saturday night over at scrapbook.com.  It was our 2nd online crop, and they really are a lot of fun!

I was given the layout Children of a bygone era by Oziem to lift.  I loved using this layout for a lift, because it was gorgeous with the flowers and elements!

All of the flowers I made myself.  I used the whale of a punch and medium retro punches, Tim Holtz Tattered Florals Die, Spellbinders Blossoms 2 and matching Heartfelt Creations Innoscents Flowers 2 stamp set, and Heartfelt Creations Daisy Patch die.  In the bottom left-hand corner, I used platinum stickles on the flower leaves, just applied with a paint brush so it wouldn't be too thick.

The paper is Bo Bunny Mama-razzi.  I handcut the fancy bracket shape, then stamped and embossed with black zing powder the flourishes on the shape.  Did a bit of wet distressing on the corners of the background paper.

The buds I made myself.  I used floral tape covered wired and took a small (1/2") 5 petal flower and wrapped it around the wire.  I sprayed the buds & vines with Tattered Leather glimmer mist, then attached punched small birch leaves to the stems.

The bigger leaves were cut on my sil and some cut using Heartfelt Creations Elegant Singles Leaves stamps & the matching Perfect Petals Die.  I inked with forest moss distress ink, and misted with olive vine glimmer mist and Forever Green Perfect Pearls mist.  The leaves that were cut on my sil, I embossed lines down the center and to the edges, then inked with forest moss distress ink.

The wagon wheel was cut with my sil and inked with Walnut Stain distress ink on the bottom layer and Timber Brown Staz On ink on the top one, seperated the two layers with pop dots and weaved some cord around the wheel.

The journaling/title was cut using Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels 4.
