Cuddly Couple

Angela ShetzerBlog, Single Page Layout

For some reason, I really struggled with scrapping these two photos of an eagle pair in a tree. It took me several attempts to be able to finally come up with a design that I liked.

SUPPLIES USED: Little Yellow Bicycle Vita Bella patterned paper, DCWV Neutrals cardstock, Art Advantage paint in Hookers Green, Doodlebug Design Paper frills, Fonts are CK General Store and AR Julian, Sketch by PageMaps (page 16), Stampendous Pattern Trio Stamp, K&Company Brenda Walton patterned paper, Sharpie pen for journaling, Stampin Up Dot Dot Dot stamp, Versa color ink in Bamboo, Stampabilities Brown ink, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Olive Vine

TECHNIQUE TIP: I always have problems matching the mountains of flowers that I have with my layouts to get the perfect color. I did not have the perfect green for these flowers so I started out with some white flowers and then used my glimmer mist (olive vine color) to create some neat variations in color on the flowers. Once they were dry, I stamped them with my Stampin Up Dot Dot Dot stamp in brown to help give them some definition. I then cut one flower in half and adhered to the top and beneath my journaling tag. Easy perfectly matched flowers!!
