Pictures of You by Mel Connell


Hi  Everyone. 

Welcome back.
So I have been creating up a storm this month, getting lots done and having heaps of fun with the gorgeous Couture Creations Dies and Embossing folders. 

This time I have created a very very girly layout using just the sweetest Ballerina Dies from Couture Creations. 

These Dies would be just divine for anyone who has little girls who do Ballet or dance, but as I don't I wanted to change them up a little.
 I cut out of some paper some butterfly wings, coated these with a layer of Crystalina Glitzin Glamour Glue, and set aside to dry. 

Next I cut out a set of the ballet girls from the Ballet Tutu Die set. These I covered with embossing ink and heat set using a cream sparkle embossing powder. 

Glue the butterfly wings to back of the Ballet girls and you have your self some Fairies. 

Layer up some pretty papers, lace and ribbon, cluster some flowers around your photos and then add all your dies cut elements. Both Fairies (I used some 3D glue spots behind them to make then stand up from the page), I also cut some green leaves, and some black flourishes from card stock to add to my clusters of embellishments. 

I added some black Glitzing Glamour Glitter Glue to the centre of some small silver cabochons that I added to my page to make them pop. To finish off I sprinkled around a lot of small Gems in the Pink Flamingo colour from Couture Creations
