this is me

Hello - I have my first page to share using my December kit from The Scrapbook Store - I've been given the fabulous collection - Then & Now by Teresa Collins - this paper is just gorgeous ☺ So happy to be working with this lovely collection!
Here is my page:
 I was inspired to use some 'older' pictures of me when I was little ☺ This one was taken on my second birthday ☺  For my background I've used the 12x12 woodgrain paper - for once, just leaving it as is, with no textures or misting.  I've also used some pieces from the accessory sheet - the bunting and journal strips, also some of the die-cut borders - these make your pages come together so easily.
There is also some of the WOW chipboard which I've painted with Silks Acrylic Glaze in Silver Bells - this is gorgeous stuff to work with.
So here are some close-up's:
I've made my own ruffled flower using some of the pattern paper and a scallop edge punch, then adding in a decorative brad from this collection.  As mentioned, I've used some Acrylic Glaze on the chipboard - I've simply given it two coats to create a nice shimmer finish to the piece - as you can see I've cut the chipboard is two so that I could use it in two places on my page.
Products used:
Decorative Brads - Teresa Collins
Kaisercraft blooms
Scallop punch

You can check out the entire collection in the store - Teresa Collins - Then & Now
