Summer beauty – Nicole Doiron

As you can see, I choose very bright papers from my very old Bo Bunny stash.
I then picked some fabulous chipboard from my Dusty Attic collection that I thought
would complement well the Summer feel and the kid style I wanted to express.

The first piece that caught my eye was the Mini Me set. I picked one of the cute little girls to represent the cutie in the photo, my friends’ daughter. Because I wanted some of the chipboard to really stand out against all the background colours, I decided to cover it with white embossing  powder.  I created my title with a Mini Tag and a word from Word Pack #20. You can also see a glimpse of a newly released Polaroid Frame Set #1 poking out from the bottom of the picture.

Another new release from Dusty Attic is a line of very intricate Swirls. The one below comes from Set #1. I thought it went perfect with the design of this layout.

To mimic the geometric pattern on the background papers, I decided to add the Geometric Border and part of the Geometric Corners on both outer edge of my page.  They are absolutely fabulous. And I just love how cute the little Twine Bow looks on the tag! I colored it with a marker and gel pen.

Even my flowers are chipboard on my layout. I used Flower Layers #5 that I painted with Dusty in Colour Sunburnt Orange paint with a few dabs of the lighter Bisque.  Then finally, I added a few final touches of blue and purple with Decorative Dots and Page Pebbles.
