Beauty of Body Art..

Hi everyone.. Happy Sunday to you all..
Here's a layout I made this morning.. I used the vine tutorial of Sandy's that we have posted on our challenge blog STUCK ON U SKETCHES
I'm sure you all have guess by now, but I love lilies with all of my heart, especially the pink ones..
I have been in a rut lately cause of a family members health issue, so it was nice to be able to put my mind to other things again..
I thought it was ironic that I used Prima marketing papers , but made my own flowers on a vine, which that company is really known for..LOL
Here are some close ups of the layout.. the colors are a bit lighter than what the photos show.. Its a dark autumn here in Finland, so the lighting is off a bit..



Supplies Used:

Cricut cartridge: Accent Essentials (Lilies)
Cricut cartridge: Indie Art (butterflies)
Cricut cartridge: Storybook (marquee's, "BODY",
Cricut cartridge: A Childs Year (leaves)
Cricut Cartridge: Opposites Attract (beautiful, of, art)
Prima marketing papers. Whisper collection
pink, green and black cardstock
Tim Holtz distress ink : worn lipstick
Versa color inks: amethyst, petal pink and white
Chalks: dark pink
Stickle: pink, cotton candy, lime green
pop dots
wire: green and pink

Please don't forget to check out Sandy's tutorial.. Click HERE..It so clever and super easy..
You can add any color or style of flowers to your vine.. the options are endless..

Thank you all so much for looking
and have a great Sunday..

  3. Sorry to here about your family member. But I am glad you found comfort in scrapbooking. Beautiful page, you are making me want AE so badly now! I've got to build my arsenal of cartridges if I'm going to keep up with you!LOL I will eventually catch up as I'm new to cricuting.

  4. Well Nanne this is just beautiful. I just adore lillies too. The colours are beautiful and the title looks great. I had a go at the vine tute but I think my wire was too thick, not giving up tho.

    Hope all is well soon with the family.
