:LAYOUT: Sweet Thing

This was one of my daughter’s FAVORITE dresses and wanted to wear it every chance she got, so I wanted to be sure to highlight it well.

I had this picture both in color and sepia, so decided to layer a cropped portion of the color photo over the full-sized sepia version for an interesting effect.

Then I placed the sticker I used for my title over the rest of the photo.

Initially, I wanted to use a rub on journaling spot on the painted butterfly, but for some reason it didn’t want to transfer well, so I created the effect myself using a paint pen.

Like star dust glistening on fairies' wings,
Little girls dreams are of magical things.
