Grad Partners

Hi there!
This week, I decided to do some grad photos.
HA! I bet you didn't see that coming, did you?
I'm almost done documenting this special day in pocket pages and now I'm starting to scrap the  pages that mean something to me.

Papers: My Mind's Eye, Bazzill Basics Cardstock; American Crafts; Embellishments:
Prima Marketing, Studio Calico, American Crafts, Bo Bunny washi; Diecuts: iHeart Studio
cut file, Tim Holtz/Sizzix die, Bo Bunny & Maya Road stick pins;
Misc: Water colour paints, photo corners

Watching Julia with her grad partner was a special moment and I wanted to imitate the corsage with a rose-like flower. So I made a flower from coffee filters and this blinged out button. The flower is the Tattered Flower die from Tim Holtz and it's just many layers of coffee filters fluffed and folded. Then, I cut the leaves from an iHeart Studio die cut photo frame (I just cut away the frame part) and painted few colours of water colour paints to colour it green to match the grass in the background of the photos.
This was a quick and simple page that came together very quickly for me. And one of my favourites in the grad collection. ;)
Be sure to look for the next installment of  "Julia's Grad Extravaganza" next week. LOL!
