Riley is Expanding
Oh baby..... I totally felt like a moose when I was pregnant with the twins. I told my husband people stared at me... he said I was being over sensitive. Then, the day before my c-section, we went to the mall and he whispered in my ear "OMGosh... they are staring at you!". Yah, I was HUGE. Two seven pound healthy baby boys three weeks early... it was worth feeling like a moose!
The designer paper is from a DCWV pack called The Pocket full of Posies Stack. It's really cool with glitter and embossing all over it. I paper pieced the dress with the same paper. Before I dressed her, I masked her with Eclipse Masking tape and airbrushed the sky and grass. I went back over the grass with a darker green, then added some texture with the blender juice and a wash cloth. Love how it gives the grass such a realistic texture.
The little flower in her hair is a made tiny punch that I got from the Target Dollar Spot, with a Dot Sticker in the center. LOVE those Dot stickers. You get a ton on a sheet and it all different sizes... .and they really sparkle! I take them off the sheet and attach them using my poker from the Crafter's Tool kit. Have you seen all the new Riley Meese? They are all just TOO cute. :)
