Natalie's Invites



Good Morning Friends!

Today's post is just like the title says....Natalie's Invites!!!  I am so happy to be done with them LOL!  I truly enjoy doing private work but I guess I'm OCD or something because after the 10th one....my eyes start spinning!!!  I literally had to work on these 10 at a time & that actually made time go by a lot faster than I thought....I did squeeze other projects in there as well so I could really feel like I was multitasking!!

Natalie & her mom picked the color scheme, layout & the type of texture they wanted on the front of the invites.  I added a bit of bling to the butterflies (you can't see that in the photo!) along with the pearls.  I think it accents the faux mother of pearl front panel piece perfectly & with this technique; no two are alike so that makes them extra special to me.  The finishing touch was to add ink to the whisper white pieces.....it helps them stand out a bit more than just plain white on white & voila--everyone's happy!!!!

I'm off to continue working on Convention swaps!  I do hope you enjoy the next scrapbook layout I'll be posting next week.  Thanks so much for stopping by & have a great rest of the weekend!!!
Until Next Time,
Hugs & Love,
