Hi – Jean Okimoto here – with a spring layout of 8-month-old Addison. The background is simply stenciled in ColorBox Chalk Inks. Donna Salazar Fairy Dust Glitter adds a bright touch of baby bling to a “sweet ” diecut. The poufy little accents are just hand-tinted puffs of ivory vintage lace from a set of trims and goodies by Hydrangea Hippo. The wiggly strips are inked white rickrack strips, also from Hydrangea Hippo.
Use papertowels to ink the topside of 12″ strips of lace with Fire and Limon. Gently heat-set the inks, under a protective layer of printer payer, with a medium iron. Sew a running stitch down the center of the lace, then scrunch it and tie it into a pouf – don’t cut the threads yet! Punch two holes in the center of a scrap cardboard circle, pass the threads thru the holes and tie a few knots. It’s a lot easier to glue the cardboard circle to your background, and any excess glue won’t show thru the lace.
Use papertowels to ink the rickrack with Limon and Jungle – then highlight the texture with Bark. Gently heat-set the inks.
