My Little Angel Layout By Kay

Happy January Berry71Bleu fans!  Kay here with my interpretation of this month's challenge: Things With Wings.

My project incorporated several items & elements with wings.  I used washi paper in the background with butterfly images, I perched a small yellow bird embellishment on top of the nest & I decided to give my little guy his very own pair of angel wings.  I'm always saying how my son is my 'sweet little angel' so the idea to give him some sort of angel wings has been brewing in my mind for some time now--the opportunity finally came where I can add wings to him & it made sense!

My son was just a little over a month old when this photo was taken.  His sweet face has changed a bit since then but he still has those big brown eyes.

Here you can see the different layers of washi shape that I applied to the background.  I also did a bit of misting & masking with modeling paste.  Working with white mixed media always pops more against a solid black background.

I kept the overall design of the page simple--I wanted the main focus to be on my photo.

I tucked a small glassine bag underneath the photo that serves as pocket where I inserted a tag. This will hold my journaling.

I've used images by one of our sponsors this month by Digital Paper.  The floral images were pink so I edited the color in Photoshop & made them blue to go along with the colors of my layout.  That's the beauty of digital images--you can make them any color you want with just a bit of knowledge on how to edit images with a photo editor.  I then fussy cut the flowers & tucked them behind my photo.  Voila!  Instant customized embellishments!
