Don’t really want to

I love this picture of our daughter! This is her special expression when she doesn’t really want to do what we tell her to do. She pulls her shoulders up, puts her head on one side, and smiles this cute little smile… Quite hard to resist…
I made this layout for Scrap the girls June challenge. It’s a color challenge with cream, light pink, dark pink and black. I wanted to use a lot of different mists and Distress Stains to create the right “pink feeling”. This is what I came up with.

I first painted part of the cardstock with pink Distress Stain. I then sprayed with three different shades of pink Glimmer Mist, and finally “dipped” the cardstock in “pearls” of Distress Stain (pink and red). It was an experiment but I kind of liked the result :)

The flowers are colored with different shades of pink (and black) mists that I both sprayed and splashed. The checkered paper is a Webster’s paper that I decorated using a black pen and some rhinestones.

Left of the picture I decorated with a black rub-on from K & Company, stamps, black ink, and some flowers cut out of Webster’s patterned papers.
Thanks for looking!!!
