WMS April Sneak Peek Day 2 - Nordic Baby

(Note:  Please click here if you are looking for my Creations by AR new Template posting.)

Welcome to Day 2 of the Waltzingmouse April Release Sneak Peeks.  Today we're showing you a sweet mini  set called Nordic Baby featuring 3 sentiments (Sweet, Baby and Welcome), 2 design elements and a cute little pair of Mary Jane shoes!   
 
Since I have a sweet little 7 month old grandniece, Mila (pronounced Mee-la) - it was very easy for me to create with this set.  I decided to try my hand at a little mixed media project and I created an 8"x8" scrapbook page.

First I mixed some white and blush acrylic paints and brushed it across my white card stock panel to soften the glare of the white. I placed my photo on the panel and added the patterned paper strips and felt buttons - moving them around until I was happy with the placement.  I marked where I put everything and then I stamped the grid and circles from an older release, Off Beat Backgrounds, several times on the panel, not inking the entire stamp so there were gaps in the stamping.
Mila's Mary Janes are actually stitched into her little white tights - but I knew this was the perfect picture of her to use with the sweet Mary Janes stamp!  I stamped "Mila" with letters from December's release, the Woodenheart Alphabet.
I think my niece Katie will love this page of her sweet little daughter!

Now let's see what cute projects the rest of the Design Team has to share with us today!
