Her Fairytale

It seems like yesterday, that I used to carry my niece around with me, and now I have turned around and she is all grown up and getting married.  This Scraps Of Darkness layout features a pic of Megan with her soon to be husband, Johnathan. Where did the time go??!

I started with a piece of the cardstock from the add on. I stamped the corners using the included Prima stamp and then used a Prima mask and did some misting. I then scalloped, water distressed and inked the edges of some of the pp. I then used a circle template and a scallop template to cut out the paper and roll back the edges. I then distressed, inked and stamped the rolled back edges. I took the Prima package paper from some trim and punched the edges and used it as the background for the photo.

I took a Dusty Attic Dress form painted it with white acrylic paint, then crackle distressed it and rubbed pink acrylic paint over it. For the stand I rubbed some gold mica over the white paint. I added some prima flowers and pearls, as well as some dyed seam binding laced into the form. I then tied a bow to the bottom and added a ribbon flower. I cut out some b & w cardstock butterflies, painted the insides of the wings with micas and then used black diamond Stickles for the outside of the wings, and attatched them to the dress form. Next I took some Dusty Attic Doillies, painted them with pearlized paint, used puff paint on the edges, heated the edges to puff, then painted them with gold mica and added some of the kit flowers and bling to the centers.

I took some cardstock b & w letters, colored them with colored markers, then used UTEE to give them a glass look. I took some Tim Holtz photo corners, painted the scroll pattern with pearlized paint and added them to the corner of the photo.

For the last touch, I used a cardstock dragonfly, stickled his body then UTEE'd the wings and affixed him onto the scalloped circle.

Thanks for dropping by and helping me to celebrate my sweet nieces engagement. It is my hope that her fairytale will have a " happily ever after!"
