"Playing Pretty" - A Scrapbook Page by Jennifer Priest

Have you ever played "dress up" as a little girl? My daughter recently had a fun playdate with my niece where they played "make up" instead of "dress up". I know the Bloom Girl "Sharon" would be perfect for helping to capture this moment on a scrapbook page. The beauty of BloomGirls is that you can literally "make them up" however you like. Blue eye shadow and a bright red lip? Coming right up! This page captures the essence of "playing pretty".

Here's how I created this page start to finish:


  • Bloom Girl "Sharon"
  • Bloom Collection Prima Flowers- Sunkissed
  • Bloom Collection Brads
  • Bloom Collection A4 Watercolor Paper
  • Faber-Castell Gelatos
  • Faber-Castell Watercolor Pencils
  • ColorBox Pigment Ink in Black
  • DecoArt Media Misters
  • Black Acrylic Paint
  • Black Shimmer Cardstock, 12x12
  • White Cardstock
  • Adhesive
  • Gunmetal Glitter Paper
  • Paper Trimmer
  • Paint Brush
  • Water
  • Paper Towels
  • Heat Gun

Next time you find a cache of "dress up"or "playing make up" photos, consider using a Bloom Girl to help showcase the memory. Thank you for visiting today. For more from Jennifer Priest, check out
