[Such a Little] Cutie - Donna Salazar Designs

Hi everyone!  I have another layout to share using Donna's StoryBook papers... and I got to play with a baby photo!  This is my son Kel when he was just 9 months old, he was the cutest, cuddliest, happiest little boy... such a joy {then he grew up}!  Nah, joking... he still gives us such happiness!!

Okay... so the Story Book papers I have to admit were quite daunting for me when I first got my hands on them.  But I realised I am reaching for them every time I want to create a new layout and it's because of the fabulous texture images, cut outs, colours, hues that are perfectly 'Kel toned'... I LOVE them!!   This time I couldn't wait to cut out the "cotton ball" clouds, how CUTE are they.  I adore how Donna's playful style comes through so much in this range, you can't help but have fun creating with them.

I love {lotsa loving happening here today LOL}, Donna's Denim & Canvas Squares.  I know, 'go cut up a pair of jeans' you say... but these are thin enough to get through the Spellbinders dies with a few passes, some of my old jeans just won't cut through no matter how many times I put them through. 

Donna's Alpha's are super cute... perfect for the funky fun of the StoryBook range.  I have the Dies as well, but I like to alter the chipboard with Mix'd Media Inx.  For these ones I used Denim and Honey, randomly dabbed on and then lightly misted with water.  Then I dried them with the heat gun, forcing the water and ink to pool and create this marbled effect!

My very favourite fabric right now is loose weave gauze... it ties into the cutest little bows!

I have had this flower for a while... just waiting for the right layout to use it on.  It's cut with Donna's Rose Creations Die from Denim and Canvas.  I coated the fabric while flat with Strano Ribbon Stiff, added a little Caramel Latte Smooch Spritz, formed the flower shape and patiently waited for it to dry.

That's all I have to share today... until next time, take care and be true to you!
