Karina: Scrapbook Page for Miracles Momma Designs


































It's always exciting to see what Heather over at Miracles Momma Designs will come up with next!

This sketch is lovely! I used most of it true to form with the exception of a large circle at the top with hearts on it because we loved our girl guide Karina!



Karina was our girl guide in Peru. As my Dad and I figured out later, not all girl guides are created equal. The one we had in Lima we considered tying up and leaving in the catacombs. Karina was great the whole trip! We had good times with her and learned all sorts of interesting tid bits about Peruvian culture. As I'm working on my album from this trip, making a page to talk about Karina was vital!

One of the parts I enjoyed the most about this page was making those bright colored flowers. I pulled up my Tim Holtz tattered floral punch and cut out some old muslim. Added some ink pad stain and some alcohol inks and came up up with this! Also cut out a fern and got crazy with glitter. Love the heart I added in the center too. That was previously white and was stained with more alcohol ink.


And, here is a side view of my page. Love the contrasts against the white. So pretty!






Thanks for the great sketch Heather!

Happy Friday! TGIF!
