Photo Pocket


Just a very quick scheduled post for you today! I am currently away, but made this fun little project before I left.

We don't get to see our girls' Ma often as she lives far from us so I ordered some photos of our little girls to take with us for when we go to see her during our trip. The photos arrived in a pocket which I have traced onto a white cardstock, cut out and scored....

... colorised it with Dylusions...

...added a bit of 'ghoasting' using my Moroccan embossing folder by Sizzix and did some stamping using the Teresa Collins 'Everyday Moments' stamp set. I also mixed a bit of my Liquitex light modeling paste with my Dylusions sprays and applied this mixture through my TCM script stencil. The flowers were stamped onto a sprayed cardstock, twice for each flower, as I cut out just a portion of the second one and glued them together for a bit of a dimension. I didn't want to use any bulky embellishments as this will most likely be stored in a drawer. I also added a blue silk ribbon so this pocket can be securely closed. This pocket fits 5 x 7" photos or any smaller ones, of course...

I hope you like it! Well, I just hope Ma likes it :/ Feel free to leave a comment or two as there is a chance I might be able to read it now and I will definitely read them upon my return. Thank you for stopping by!

Have a great day!
