Garden Ghost

Supplies : Paper by Making Memories, Pebbles, and Scenic Route; Bazzil CS; Ribbon, buttons, brads, and white cardstock by CTMH; Glitter cardstock by Doodlebug; Flowers by Prima; Thickers and Remarks letter stickers by American Crafts; Embroidery Floss; Bloom Nestibilities

How fun that little paper pieced ghost was to make! He's glitter cardstock so that he shines like the glittered ghost on her shirt. I drew a simple ghost on the wrong side of the glitter paper and then cut him out. I even stitched around the outside of him to give him a bit more presence. The brads and stitching were added after he was stuck to the layout. The journaling talks about how Audrey has a black thumb like me, which is fitting for these pictures since she looks like a little grim gardener! Making the flowers was fun too, I freehandedly cut the leaves from the same paper I cut the flower middles from. I think that added so much pop to the rest of the layout and really helped balance out the dark shirt she's wearing in the pictures. It's funny the grouping of papers I put together. The Making Memories paper is from the Great Escape summer line, the Pebbles paper is from the Lil' Bud baby boy line, and the Scenic Route one I think came out last fall. Don't be afraid to mix up your papers, especially the ones that end up in your scrap stash, you never know how great they may coordinate! Anyway, have a happy Wednesday and thanks for visiting!
