Badgirls and Graphic 45

Badgirls Kits featured Graphic 45 papers for the month of December. They are featuring the layouts of the BG designers using their beautiful vintage papers. If you can, please check out the Graphic 45 blog here.

Here are my layouts for the December Kit...

This is a project for my daughter for her to practice her ABC's and the words that go with the letters. The graphic 45 paper in the kit had blocks and I just cut them out. I used letter stickers for the missing letters, punched a hole on the corner of the blocks and secured everything with a ring clasp.

This one is about how creative and silly children can be. I painted the background with yellow paint and used the Graphic 45 tags to highlight the journaling.

This is a layout about my daughter's version of "Dressing Down". Well she does it literally. She opens her cabinet, takes down all the clothes, climbs inside the cabinet and poses. I put all the clothes back in - and then she does it all over again when I'm not looking!

This month's challenge is about what brings us peace. This page is about finding faith in one's self. I found peace when I found faith in myself and I wanted to impart this to my daughter who is at that stage where she is insecure and very unsure of herself.

I loved the embossed texture of the cardstock and wanted to bring out the patterns. I applied watermark ink on the areas I wanted to highlight and then layered gold and teal pigment powders with a soft brush on the embossed patterns.
