Here is the last scrap of the triplets as my DH is banning me from the computer for the rest of the day!


Page Kit: "Pretty Primavera" by Thao Cosgrove. This kit is sooooo beautiful. It's not "what can I do with this kit?", but rather "can I find enough photos for this kit?"

Butterfly embellishment is from "California Poppy" by Lauren Bavin from another site.

The white tag is from a kit called "Wedding", but for the life of me I cannot find the author or site where I got it. If you recognize it, please let me know.

Swirled words are from "Renew" by Shalae Tippets.


Technique: Hide and peek photo.

1. Make your photo as you normally would complete with borders and shadows.

2. Make a duplicate of your background paper and place this new layer over the photo.

3. With your transparency brush set at 35% and large sized, start sweeping over the new top layer of background paper. Go over and over the sections where you want the photo to most show through. Just make one sweep in sections you want some of the background paper to lay over your photo. Leave some of the edges of the photo "hidden" behind the background paper.

This is beautiful. I love how the photo just floats on the paper...almost like water and it's gotten wet. Great technique!


And for what it's worth, I agree. Thao's Pretty Primavera is extremely universal! It's my new favorite collection. :)
