Look at You Now

The portrait is of my mother at seventeen.

On this LO, I distressed, stitched, and rolled the paper by K& Co. Also punched and painted the gold butterflies, and added their little antenae. Used Prima Debutantes Collection as well as Prima gold leaves and Glitter Spray. Also used Petaloo flowers and added the little mint green pearls. For the title I printed out the lyrics of the song, then used Maya Road's "Noah" chipboard letters....painted with Hot Cinnamon Radiant Rain color concentrate by Creative Imaginations. Next, I made the letters glossy with Glossy Accents by Ranger. Also, there is a piece of antique scrap from my maternal grandmother's collection in the lower right corner.
