forever young

I started this with inspiration from one of my very favorite scrapbook artists, GabrielleP (a link to her AMAZING blog is under my fave bloggers, go check her out!) the layout by Gabrielle that particularly inspired this one was her "you're beautiful" layout, the #1 favorite layout of all time on!
the base is a piece of plain white 12x12 cardstock and hand journaled the lyrics to Rod Stewart's "Forever Young" throughout the entire page. To get this effect, i used a white Zig Chalk marker, and then took a cotton ball and swept a pale pink chalk all over the background, making it deeper around the edges.
the photo is matted on green sparkle cardstock, with a backing of vellum, which is hand-torn. i used the same green cardstock and foam stamps to create the little green flowers. i hand cut them and placed some rhinestones in the centers. i also used an olive colored chalk around the edges to add depth.the middle striped border is surrounded by hand placed rhinestones on the top, glass beads in the middle, and a border rub-on decal on the bottom. the white flower is paper, and i used the same glass beads in the center of the flower. the 4 corners are all stamped flourishes, that i used a brown ink pad with. The title is made from stickers, which are alterable, so i inked them a deep gold and placed them under the circle. the rest of the embellishments are just hand cut from scrap papers, which i find is a fun way to use up patterned papers that you're not sure what to do with.
