The Graphics Fairy...

I want to extend a gigantic thank you to the The Graphics Fairy. Every morning I make my coffee and sit down for ten minutes or so at my computer. I check some of my favorite web sites, the The Graphics Fairy being the first one I open. It’s like opening a treasure chest of vintage graphics. Each day there is a new post added. Karen’s collection includes something for everyone even if you are not a vintage enthusiast as I am. That brings me to my post today. Karen's post for April 26th was this adorable little girl all dressed in pink and it made me think of my daughters baby pictures when she was about three. Needless to say it became the starting point for my layout. The paper I used is from the Prima Nursery Tales collection I had shown in an earlier post. It really is beautiful quality weight paper. The harlequin print almost looks like glittery patent leather. The pink is pearlized and I love the bunny and little girl print, it almost reminds me of Alice in Wonderland. The photo I scanned and converted to a light septa tones then colorized with the paint brush tool. I choose to just color the gingham on her dress, her pink cheeks and blue eyes. I gave it just enough color to tie in with my pink theme. The flowers are from the same Nursery Tales collection. The title is done with a stamp set from Creative Imaginations called Sonnets. I used Cats eye chalk covered with Diamond dust on vellum. Adding a bit of ribbon and lace, rhinestones and sparkle here and there and my ‘Baby Girl’ was complete. Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.
