Lullaby ~ The Paper Mixing Bowl

I was asked to be the Guest Designer, for April, for the new challenge blog called "The Paper Mixing Bowl".  If you haven't heard of this cute challenge blog, go and take a look because it will give you some major inspiration with their Recipe Cards.  This Recipe Card is their second challenge. It gives you a sketch, a main color to use, some items/techniques to go by and some journaling ideas. When you are lost with ideas, this definitely gives you direction.

This is what I created, using a lot of Scraps of Elegance items mixed with some of my own.  I put a lot of care and time making this delicate page.  The main ingredient is white icing, so I really liked the idea of using white, and decided to use basically that color alone with a little cream and silver for my page.  For the utensils, I managed to use everything listed.  This precious baby is my mom in 1940.   

This beautiful clay embellish by Melissa Frances was painted with Liquid Pearls for an extra shine.

Journal:  A baby's smile is a new beginning to many happy moments throughout a lifetime.  These are the moments that will be cherished forever. 

For oval shapes I used 2 wooden frames by Kaisercraft, tucked slightly behind the photo, painted a tad with white gesso.
