Expecting You - lo

This lo won Top 3 at A Pocket Full Of Posies-
glitter & flowers challenge! Thank you, Ayelet!

I wanted to scrap this photo, of me at the end of my 2nd pregnancy, for a long time. I finaly got to do it, mostly because of the challenge over From Screen 2 Scrap.
At that time I already had quite painful contractions, but It took 11 days more till I gave birth to my youngest, in an emergency cs. He was born with joy and great happiness, and he is truely "to love and to be loved" kid.

All the buttons I used on this lo are from polymer clay, and so are the leaves on the right side.
The singing bird on the branch is paper piecing (I tried to follow my bloggy friend, Rose Miller, the queen of paper piecing), and the digi stamp is from softpencil
I used dp from stamperia, BG and K & co.
There's a lot of glitter on this one. The dp had some swirls on it, and I spread glitter on the swirls and addes some more glittered swirls. The butterfly on the right bottom corner is part of the base dp, and I cut it and poped it up with dimensional. I added glitter to the wings and tiny black pearls on the body.
The circle underneath the photo was made out of scraps of dp. I really love this tip of re-using all those little pieces of scraps and making a new pp out of them.
Now, look at this flowers buttons banner! These polymer clay buttons were made by my sister and I find that they add so much to a lo. The fun part of it is that you can always make them in the color, shape and size you need (for example, I made by myself the leaves, just the color and shape I wanted).
The pink flower on the paper doily is felt and I adhered a clay button on top.
The title says in Hebrew: "Expecting you", and the letters are from "practical magic, they're glittered.
The challenges:
buttons, bows, bling - #8 papercraft star (I have lots of buttons here: the pink ones and the banner with the green ones, the bling are the tiny little black blings on the butterfly on the bottom, and bows on the banner & on the pink flower obove)

Thanks for stoppinb by!

תמונה מסוף ההריון השני שלי, למעשה 11 יום לפני שילדתי את בני הצעיר. הייתי כבר עם צירים די חזקים.
נהניתי מאד להכין את הדף הזה (גם בגלל הזכרונות שהוא העלה...).
הפרפר בצד הימני הוא חלק מהדף עצמו, שחתכתי מתוך הדף, מרחתי על הכנפיים גליטר והדבקתי עם דבק ספוג. על הדף עצמו היום מערבולות אז עברתי עליהן עם גליטר והוספתי עוד כמה ביד חופשית.
יש פה הרבה פימו - הפרחים והעלים מימין, שרשרת הפרחים הירוקים בפינה השמאלית העליונה והפרח הורוד למעלה. חלקם הכינה אחותי וחלקם אני. הכיף עם פימו שאפשר להכין קישוטים בגודל, צורה וצבע שמתאימים בדיוק למה שרוצים.
העיגול שמתחת לתמונה הוא ניצול של שאריות קטנות. אני שומרת את השאריות הקטנות הללו בקופסה. מיינתי ובררתי לי את אלו שמתאימות בגוונים לכלל העבודה, לפי הדף והתמונה, ופשוט קרעתי אותן לחתיכות קטנטנות והדבקתי על קארדסטוק לבן. היה לי הכי נוח לעבוד עם מוד פאדג' מאט. מרחתי, הדבקתי, מרחתי מעל שוב, כך שלא נשארו קצוות של ניירות שקפצו מההדבקה. וכך יצרתי לי למעשה דף מדוגם חדש, קולאג'.
זו שיטה נהדרת לניצולת מקסימלית של שאריות,  והדף שמתקבל הוא ממש אידיאלי להכנת פרחים, בורדרים ואפילו פסים למאטינג.

תודה שקפצתן להסתכל!
