Celebrate Good Times, Flamingo Style

Hello Flamingo Fans! Melissa, here, with a fabulous project using all kinds of goodies from the Flamingo Scraps Store! This is a page about my birthday from last year... I figured it would be good to scrap it now, since it will be coming up again in about a month! LOL. Anyway, I had tons of fun with the new Tim Holtz Distress Paints, some great Heidi Swapp products, and some faux InstaGram photos via Photoshop. 

As you can see, I layered lots of paints, mists, and embellishments together on this one, and I'm totally in love with it! 

That butterfly is one of the hot trends that are out there - veneers are a totally fun embellishment because you can use them as is, or you can color and paint them, like I did here. I loved the hot pink pen I used to color this, but it was a little intense for this page, so I added some white distress paint over the top of it to tone it down. 

That cupcake was super fun to create! It's a FabScraps chipboard die cut that I've painted with the Tim Holtz Distress Paints (I used peeled paint, picked raspberry, walnut stain, and Victorian velvet). I sprinkled ultra thick embossing enamel over the brown paint, while it was still wet, and then melted it with my heat gun to give it a little shine and make it look even more delicious, and then used some Stickles to make the sprinkles. 

This is a little close up of my favorite photo from the day, taken by my husband, along with a detail shot so you can see the misting, painting, and doodling that went into making this page! That square of paper is from the Heidi Swapp Vintage Chic collection, called Just Dots (I used the B-side).

And one final detail shot on the layers of ribbon and bows! I had tons of fun with Color Shine - probably one of my new favorite misting products. That bow is available in store right now in a Heidi Swapp/Pink Paislee bundle, along with the Sugar Stix and the background paper. That yummy trim is from Websters Pages

So there you have it... a great way to celebrate your birthday - or any birthday - with a scrapbook page, Flamingo Scraps style!
