Word Art Wednesday

The challenge for this weeks challenge was to use the Bible verse "I prayed for this child and the Lord has granted me what I asked of Him" 1 Samuel 1:27 I thought that it would be ideal to use it in this scrapbook page of my granddaughter, Bronwyne.
I also used a sketch by Marsha Valk in this month's issue of Scrap 365 magazine

When I was looking for papers to use for this layout all the baby style papers that I had looked washed out and completely un-inspirational. I ended up using these very vibrant papers from Kaisercraft's Candy Lane range. For all the colour in them I think that the photos still catch the eye as being the focal point of the page

I decided that I wanted to make all the flower embellishments as the papers are all double-sided so I had plenty of choice of co-ordinating patterns. I enjoy making these rosettes and often use a border punch or a pattern cutting blade. I used an ink pad to edge some of the flowers

The sketch shows the journalling under the photos but my writing is so bad that I can't have it on show lol

I cut a line across the page and used it to hold tags where I had done my journalling. I inked the edge of the cut to give it definition

I left a gap in the adhesive for the photo panel by the group of flowers at the top of the layout

I used the gap to put another hidden tag, this time with the Bible verse on it

Kaisercraft papers and tags from the Candy Lane range
