what would IRIS do?

it seems Nita and i have been friends way too long (29 years by now) that we are often on the same wavelength. last week, bespren Nita was on self-pity mode after viewing Iris Uy's online album at webshots. See her funny thoughts here at her blog at how Iris scared off her scrapping muse. At the same time, I was at home also trying to put together an LO. I was looking at the picture I wanted to scrap and thought to myself "what would Iris do?" so with that in mind, and a prayer directed at my scrapping goddess Iris, i started picking out papers and cutting and pasting paper and of course, lace! Here's the result:

it may be a long ways from something my idol would accomplish but i'm pretty happy i captured the romantic feel i so love about her work. Thanks idol Iris for the inspiration.

And Nita, we have something even better to drool over! Iris now has a blog... oooo, yeah! I'm putting my bib on now.

deconstruction:
K&Co paper as base. Bazzill cardstock (java) to matt the photo. Photoshop CS2 to edit the photo, EK Corner Adorner (slot wrought iron) for corner trim. Making Memories Kraft for the dotted paper. Bazill Blooms with letter brad from AAS, K&Co Words and Sayings chipboard, lace, small safety pin with starfish charm, a small sigay shell from the beach and a heart button also from AAS, transparency printed on the computer for the quotation and attached with Making Memories mini brads in metallic, metal tag frame, Prima flowers and buttons.

Oh this is so pretty, Au! It has a dreamy and romantic feel. I love all the little details and the effect of the corner adroner - I think I may have to buy that punch now!
