Sweet Baby Girl Layout

9x9 Layout

Good Morning Paper Crafters!  I bet you are wondering who this little cutie patootie is??  It's my neice 21 years ago.  What a sweet little face.  So I needed a sweet little layout to go with it. 
I wanted to use my "Baby Clothesline" set by Pink Persimmon, so I headed out to Archivers in search of the perfect patterened paper to create my layout with.  As soon as I seen this patterned paper I grabbed it.  I knew it would make a great shabby layout.  It's part of the My Mind's Eye "Blush" line.  It came in a 6x6 paper pad as well so I grabbed one, knowing the small patterns would be perfect for paper peicing the little clothes.  This set comes with the cutest little clothes pins so that you can create a little clothesline, adorable boy and girl clothes, and some cute little toys as well.  LOVE it!

I wanted to use my "Small Banner" set with the "Small Carnival Alpha" set though,  so I opted to layout the clothes randomly.  The Small Banner set comes with 6 different little patterns that you can choose to stamp your banner in.  You stamp the inside first, then the outside in black.  Then stamp your letters on each banner.  I colored the inside of the letters with a Copic marker R85.

I paper peiced the dress and bloomers.  I stamped the sweater, booties, and bunny on pink cardstock and then added shawdowing with my Copic Markers.  I used RV0000 with R85, tip to tip.  R85 would have been to dark to apply directly to paper.  I created a great shading by picking up a little R85 on the tip of my RV0000 markers.  I shaded the birds with N00.

It's hard to see in the photo, but I added glitter to the stripes in the dress, around the edges of the banners, over the birds, and over the swirly. 
I wanted to create a shabby mat so I layered 3 peices of pink.  I distressed the edges of layer one using a distressing tool.  I used my deckled scissors on layer 2.  I inked all the edges with Pearlescent Chocolate ink.   
To help create an interesting border along the side of the mat, I layered eyelet lace with white party streamer that I had gathered into a ruffle.  I needed more white on the layout so the clothes would show up, so I added some wide lace. 

I hope you are inspired to create a sweet little baby boy or girl layout of your own!
