I scrap-booked one 12″ x 12″ page using a photo of my Blog Avatar. The envelope has information about the photo. My inspiration was “Angel” from a Bo Bunny advertisement.

Detail from layout: I distressed the brown card-stock by misting with water, crunching, ironing and adding Tsukineko walnut ink and Ranger Industries, Tim Holtz® Distress Ink Pad-Vintage Photo.

To make the flowers, I used lace that was already gathered.

I gather the lace more using a running stitch.

I gather the lace until I think my flower is big enough.

I secure the gathers with smaller stitching.

I hem the ends.

I glued the plastic gem to a brad, which I pushed through the center of the flower.

Underside of the lace flower, the brad makes it easier for me to attach the flowers to my layout.
