A few Ideas to Try

The border was made by cutting a strip of paper, punching holes along the center & threading ribbon through them. The chipboard pieces were inked & embossed & the title was inked & metalic cream rubbed on it. I stamped feathers onto acetate then used alcohol ink on the back for colour.
On this layout I made the pearl flourish by dotting dimensional pearls onto acetate. You can do this with any swirl design. If you have used a ready made flourish before, save the backing it comes on & you can use the imprint left behind as a template. Border punches were used for the top & bottom borders as well as the edge of the big matt. A rectangular paper doilley was used as a matt for the photo.

Felt leaves, bead spray, paper doilley flowers, paper doilley, small flowers, crackle paint title, die cut wings & heart were used to bring a sense of fun to this layout. Just layer it all together & move the pieces around until you are happy with how they look!

The background to this layout is patterned acetate over white cardstock. The photo matt is black bazzill bling. The dress form was painted white with material adhered down to look like a dress. The row of ribbon beads went along the whole matt piece. The title was coloured silver with alcohol ink. The corner pieces & the side border piece are from Kutalicious (laser cut embellishments)
I hope some of these ideas will bring you some motivation to start off 2011, so happy scrapping.
