Can You Guess Which One ... Mixed Media Layout / Giveaway my granddaughter?  LOL  Is this not the cutest photo!  The photo was taken by Tabitha Safdi Photography and is totally awe-inspiring.

I couldn't help but to create a layout with a bit of creativity of my own.

Ingredients:  kraft paper Prism (now with Bazzill); Wilton, doilies; Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist; Ranger reinkers, Tea Dye, embossing ink, embossing powder red, Paint Dabber, Snow Cap; TCW Mini Art Is stencil; Prima bling; Kaisercraft wooden element; antique buttons and lace; Bo Bunny embellishments; Basic Grey letter; MME newest CHA Winter release paper; JBS journaling cards; Tim Holtz Distress Ink, vintage photo, tiny words; Fiskars corner punch

My favorite technique: 
  • Lay the stencil on the paper
  • With a sponge ink the stencil with the embossing ink (I wanted a faded out look on either side so I did not place ink all the way to the edges.  If you accidentally go further than you wanted to ... after you sprinkle on the embossing powder ... after the next step ... use a small, clean paint brush to brush away any areas you do not want to emboss.)
  • carefully lift the stencil
  • Immediately sprinkle on the embossing powder
  • Shake off access (save it!)
  • Heat until melted with an embossing heat tool
  • Let cool.....
