Welcome to day three of the Artisan Award Blog Hop. I hope you are enjoying our projects as much as we are enjoying sharing them. If you are visiting all the blogs in order, then you should have just left the blog of the oh-so-talented Heather Summers.
So far I have only shared cards, so I thought I would mix it up and share a scrapbook page with you today. This is the first scrapbook page I have ever done of my beautiful great niece, Gabby. Her older sister, Patty, is usually the subject of my pages, but my family was starting to hint that maybe it was time that Gabby got her moment in the limelight. There was a slight problem with that, however. Seems I just didn't have any good pictures of her. That's when my mom stepped in a shared some pictures she had taken. Thanks Mom!
You may not be able to tell from this picture, but the blocks in the photo have a woodgrain pattern on them. I decided to carry that over to the circles on the page by using the woodgrain background stamp and Versamark ink to heat emboss a design on cardstock. I also used some Decor Elements vinyl to create a mask at the bottom of the page. By working quickly, I was able to sponge ink on the background and then carefully remove the vinyl without damaging the page.
