Generations of Love - February Reveal for Paper Mixing Bowl!


I loved this month's recipe!! Red Velvet Cake!! Lots of layers, that yummy red, brown and cream combo...

I decided to do mine with old family photos. I layered some book pages from my favorite vintage Jane Austen novel I read so much it fell apart. Luckily it happened after I started scrapping and I bought a new copy of the book and my eyes lit up with possibilities for using the yellowed book pages for flowers, layers, etc!!

For the utensils: I made my layer cake, lots of layers of doilies book pages, some burlap and 3 photos. For my frosting I used a ledger mask and molding paste to make a background behind my layers and then I inked it up with walnut stain distress ink. For my pairs I used two hearts two branch stamps and pairs of similar flowers...the photos are also full of pairs!! I have some postage stamp fussy cut from the Pion Papers that I was using, the From the Heart collection.  I put a few coffee stain rings on the layout with my inks, and lots of flowers and hearts. I used three photos.

For my directions: I used the inspiration word of love and titled the layout Generations of Love.


Hope you come join us over at the Paper Mixing Bowl and give this great recipe a try!!

I am also going to enter this into a few of this months challenges, Zeus and Zoe's Love Challenge, Get Creative's Love challenge, and Scrap for Help plastic challenge (I stamped on recycled report covers with Staz-on ink for the title and branches in the flower cluster)
