Sunrise Sunset: Swiftly Flow the Days

Hello scrappy happy friends! What a delight it was to create this layout about our son, Lee! It chronicles in photos, his life so far. This piece was created for the CSI  design team. You can see that the scheme calls for lavendar, and I promise that I included it by using Prima mist. 

Our sponsor this month is 2 Crafty Chipboard. They have some lovely chipboard pieces to choose from in their wholesale store!

At CSI this month there will be a drawing for some of the beautiful chipboard from 2 Crafty, so be sure to check out the beautiful pieces you could win this month at CSI.

Inspired by lyrics from the song, "Sunrise, Sunset", from the musical Fiddler on the Roof, this layout is filled with texture, dimension, techniques and multimedia.  

On the chipboard I gave it texture using modeling paste and then painted the raised areas. 

Here, you can see where I stamped, painted and embossed  an area needing to be highlighted with some fun techniques. 

I decided to use a marker to add color to the edges of the banner and top it all off with a beautiful Prima flower.

My friend Carol Deal, who is also on the CSI design team, and I commented recently how we cannot seem to do a layout without adding flowers. Then, she replied that a layout is not a layout without flowers. So true, Carol! Check out Carol's blog here. She does the most beautiful work and I am always inspired by her creativity!
