Sometimes "Once Upon a Time" needs no words when......

............the princess is feeling a bit bored or disgruntled!  

I LOVE this picture!  Her body posture and expression are definitely worth a thousand words.  I suppose a wedding can get a little long when you're looking forward to an ice cream social after the service!  

Once Upon a Time is the theme for the Heart 2 Heart Challenge this week!  How fun is that?!  I'm sure we all have some storybook pictures to scrap or wedding/anniversary cards to make.  This is the perfect challenge for it!

I have been somewhat mesmerized by mixed media tutorials lately and decided to take a very simple approach towards it.  Everything you see here is from CTMH except the Mod Podge.  

First I inked up the sides of the canvas with Smokey Plum, Sky, and Blush.  I chose my papers, tore them on the diagonal and distressed the edges with Smokey Plum ink.  I then coated the canvas with Mod Podge and stuck down the papers.  I coated papers with with Mod Podge and laid down the picture.  I gave it all one more coat of Mod Podge including the photo.

Once it was all dry, I decorated using beautiful embellishments from CTMH.

  1. LOVE this picture and the way you showcased it for the challenge!

    1. Thanks, Katy! She is a cutie! I'm loving that Ivy Lane "script" paper; it is so perfect for many projects. So... cutie + pretty could I go wrong?

  2. Katrina, this is the most gorgeous display! I adore the way you used that baker's twine!!! Keep your once upon a times alive with pictures because all too fast they grow up! ;)

    1. Thanks, Amie! Yep, they grow so fast I've only had my sweet little grand-girl for a couple of years and I can't believe how much she has changed!
