Beau Chateau – Day Two

Thanks for visiting today to see my frame for Samantha Anne. She is now 6, but it seems like just yesterday this beautiful, pink bundle arrived, looking like her daddy’s twin (and she still does)!

I used the “Cherish” paper from the Beau Chateau Designer Series Paper and the “JE T’AIME” SIde Note as my starting point and built my page around these two elements. I used some Victoria Lace, Pearl Jewels, and of course….more buttons! I colored a paper daisy using a Sponge Dauber and Pink Pirouette Classic Ink.

The technqiue I wanted to point out today was using ribbon to tie in the button holes. I just snipped off an edge of a piece of Victoria Lace and brought it thorugh a few of the botton holes. Since I had used another piece of this ribbon on the buttom of the “It’s a Girl!” announcement, these embellishments all tie together. I colored the flowers on this page, just like yesterday’s page, using watercoloring with a Blender Pen. One of the best things about this DSP is that several pages already have a beautiful title image, so that makes a page come together so easily!

Tomorrow I’ll feature Maggie, grandchild #3. By that time I will have delivered Margie’s gift, so the secret will be out! Leave me a comment and tell me which frame you liked best.
