This LO has it all - texture and techniques galore. First off one of my favorite things is changing a photo to sepia tone and then coloring one aspect. In this case I used pastels to color the flowers on the hat. That is right, I hand colored them with pastel chalks. I know that is an archaic method now days with the invention of photoshop but I still like to do it this way occasionally. Love Love the Prima flower pick. My new favorite technique is on the tag. By using Tim Holt's Distress Crackle paint, then stamping in it and letting it dry then go back over it with glimmer mist and dabbing it into the crackles gives it a lovely shabby chic look. There is ribbon, lace trim and treading water hole punch. Pink staples attached with the fastenator, stamping, Crate Paper and a glitter flower boarder. All adds up to make me a scrappy happy girl!
