A little out of season, but oh, well. This was a UFO I first blogged about here. I finished it a few months ago as I started cleaning out our guest room/my scrap room to turn it into Baby Girl’s nursery. (Ummmm, it’s still a huge mess and not even remotely set up for her yet…)
The title is a Silhouette cut, as is the snowflake flourish. I backed the cutout “YOU” of the title with vellum so you can see bits and pieces of all the fun layers. I used an older BG collection, and layered tags (kind of like Christmas gift tags, I thought) underneath.
Some simple accenting with misting and stamping, brads and tabs, and voila, this UFO was finally finished! And now, finally blogged! LOL TFL!
Balloons don’t last forever… :-(
Journaling reads, “You absolutely loved the balloon they gave you at Lambert’s. You had the best time playing with it, batting it, shaking it… You had only had mylar balloons before, which died a slow, shrinking death, so as this one drooped lower to the floor, I wondered if you were going to be able to pop it. Just as I had the thought, what should happen… but as you played with it… POP! I was worried you would be really scared by it, but no… you just gave a little gasp, and then chattered up a storm to what was left of it. So cute.”
Used Silhouette cuts for the title, balloons, and popped balloons. Doubled with some gray for a shadow effect. Twine and buttons reinforced the theme, too. I ran one balloon through my CB with an embossing folder to give it some texture, and popped the popped balloon up on some dimensional adhesive. TFL!
Just a couple of random pics of T, outside the Nelson Atkins Art Museum quite a few summers ago. Combined Silhouette cuts with stamping for the title and journaling. The heart in a circle is a stamp–I just stamped it twice and popped the heart up on foam dots. I also dragged the cutout heart across an inkpad to ‘color’ it. The little yellow brackets are very old QK diecuts someone RAKed me YEARS AGO. :-) tfl!
