Little Lu was over one day all dressed in her tutu and cowboy boots to play with Charlie. She decided he needed a new hairstyle. So, Nana Katrina and she played beauty shop with Charlie!
He looks quiet stunning all cleaned with braids and such! As you can see, Lu is quite pleased with the outcome!
I started with paper from the Ivy Lane and went over the entire sheet with Sky ink. I laid out the pictures and most of the embellishments and then decided where I wanted any background stamping. I stamped the music staves from Universal Backgrounds and some stars from the Unicorn Dreams stamp.
I then broke out the Texture Paste and decided to make some stencils from Dura-Lar Acetate Alternative. The patterns came from CTMH Artbooking. I applied the Texture Paste; the recipe is listed below. The stars and the left bottom corner are the textured areas.
All of the silk flowers were left over from Katie's wedding and were white. I colored the blue by simply pressing some Sky ink into the centers. The pink flowers were colored with a CTMH Glimmer Mist Recipe. I'll put that in below, also.

This project was so much fun! I loved getting out the embellishments for this one. I have to say the glitter was driving me crazy as I was trying to get the pics for the blog. There was glitter all over the pictures on the page! I had to keep brushing them away. I couldn't help but think of Amie Kiger and her sparkle! Anyway, I'll leave you with a couple of recipes!
If you are feeling "magical" visit Heart 2 Heart where the Scrapbooking theme is Magical May. The challenge is to make your own background paper using stamps. Hmmm...... I altered the paper with stamps and CTMH Stencils....wonder if that counts? Now if you're feeling "dreamy," you should pop over to Curtain Call where the challenge is Pajama Party! I was inspired by all the girly colors over there!
Combine 1/2 cup of powder, 2 Tbs white glue, and 1-2 Tbs white paint. Add water for a thinner texture
CTMH Glimmer Mist
Combine warm water, Create a Shade Pearl Paint, and Re-inker in a spray bottle or CTMH Spray Pen. I didn't have a spray pen, so I combined it in a spray bottle from the barn; I washed it first! (As many of you know, I hate going into town for errands, so I try to make do with what I have around here!) Anyway, I made way more than I probably needed to make! If you Youtube it, I'm sure you can find a recipe much more exact. I sort of guessed til it seemed right.
