Angelic - LCOM

Hey scrappy friends, today I would like to share Aprils third and final project for LCOM using the Gabrielle collection by Bo Bunny, I absolutely cannot believe it's almost MAY!!! YAYY

So I have been seeing lots of layouts with grids, tiles not exactly sure how you would describe it, I love this technique and it does take a little extra time to cut all your papers to the exact same measurements but the final results are always worth it.
Supplies used; Papers - Bo Bunny Collection Pack, Gabrielle Cameo, Gabrielle Fairest, Gabrielle Stripe, Gabrielle Unwritten, Gabrielle Cut Outs.
Embellishments - Gabrielle 12 x 12 ChipboardPrima Dechire Collection - Ariel, Prima Sugar Blooms, Prima Fabric Leaves, Garbielle Letter Stickers, Pink Paislee Ribbon, Maya Road Vintage Black Pearl Trinket Pins

I mainly used papers from my scrap pile and cut rectangles, then I shadowed them with white bazzill there is about 1/4 inch difference in size, distressed all the edges and inked them with some wonderful Tim holtz ink, then set them in a random fashion to get my background, if you have a cutting mat with measurement lines on it these work wonders to help you line then up evenly.

After printing my photo I thought maybe I could have gone a little smaller so you would see more of the tiles behind the photo but I went ahead with it as this is probably one of most favourite pictures I have taken of Yasmin and she has grown so much since then so I kept the size.
I hope I have inspired you to try some grids and tile backgrounds, hop over to the store and get stocked up :)
Happy Scrapping. xx

Hi! Your blog is just amazing, I have always been a fan since first seeing your work on LCOM. I would like to ask if I could scraplift you for a christian based forum I am on. We are doing a telephone scraplift so basically we would all be lifting you. Right now we have 5 signed up to do this. this is an extremely small site!
The layout I would like to lift is Beauty. I chose that one because of all the circles etc. I thought it would be interesting to see how it is done by all.
Please let me know and if it is ok then also include attachment of that file.
