12×12 – Lady by the Curtains

It’s Aishwarya Rai time! Loved her and will always love her! Once crowned a Miss World, she is still very much in demand in the Indian movie industry despite being a mother of one. Really hope she’ll return to the big screen soon. It’s been a long while already.

I used Scrapbooks Etc‘s Sketch 121. The photo was taken for a Vogue magazine in 2002 when Ash was in the Cannes Film Festival to promote her then film, DEVDAS.

A mixture of Prima flower embellishment and some other unknown brand. I also used my signature ‘3 pearly dots’ to compliment the journaling section.


Umm… my first attempt at trying this sort of ‘dump-your-lot-to-one-side’ technique. Let’s see… I don’t even know where to start. That grey frame – I’d painstakingly cut it out from the Home Living sticker set I’d got. I really hate stickers which are not die-cut properly; with white outlines and such. It’s so annoying!

I’d also used blue glitter glue to represent the butterflies’ trails. Gosh! It took one and a half days for it to properly dry. Bloody cheap stuff!


I’d scored the blue paper backing for this section; to give it a bit of a ‘3D look’. Honestly not satisfied with this whole title section. Perhaps I just do not have the right coloured set for this whole blue/brown theme. But I can’t say I didn’t try.


This paragraph is a continuation from the one located at the top of the page. It’s part of a poem written by Daenerys Stormborn, entitled, “Lost At Sea”. I’ve to point out though that I’d initially thought of giving the whole line-up a 2 layer backing. But eventually I just outlined the whole design with this cream-coloured lace… Still think I should have given it a backing. Tsk!
