Language of Love

Only a mother would know what her child needs,.. even in the absence of words, I just know what you need by looking into your eyes and hearing your plea... It is perhaps the language of love that is present here that does not require spoken words to understand. I fervently pray to the Lord above that one day he can give you that gift my son. The day you finally tell us how much you love us and you finally call us Mom and Dad.. will definitely be the happiest days of our lives.....

PP Rouge de Garance Daphnis & Chloe, Mod Design Blackbird Bird house

For template of Diecut paper was traced (K&CO BW Mira)

Embellishments/ Tools : Prima bling (and assorted blings), Prima Flower (paper & fabric), KF Jewel brads, MM Pewter heart brads, Joann Metal letters, Diamond Glaze, Krylon gold leafing pen,Tsukineko Brilliance Archival Pad-Moonlight white, Stampin up French Script, Carolees word play alpha stickers, Staedler triplus, Fiskars Embossing tooll and craft knife, Cuttlebug embossing folder for embossed look on corners, Autumn Leaves clear stamps for corner, Prima Paintables (cut and made into a frame)

I edited this photograph of Jorel and I using PICASA. I made use of a Prima Paintable to hone in on this photograph. I cut up the middle part and used it as a journalling card. Using the beautiful flowers and vines print of Rouge de Garance, I had precision cut and layered the. I combined it with Mod Designs flower design pp. I added prima paper and fabric flowers. It was a struggle to leave the blank space empty.

To resolve this, I stamped the page faintly with the Stamping up French Script using a white brilliance ink. And for extra dimension I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder with a Fiskars embossing tool to give the corners an impression. The background page was created by tracing the K & CO BW Mira paper on the blue Bazzill cs and cut with Fiskars craft knife (yeah I know crazy but I am in love with die cut papers at the moment!)

I submitted this layout for the 2nd of the Kaya Challenge. Its emphasizing negative space. I am unsure if I was able to follow because white space is not my thing,... its a struggle,...
