A Day of Frolic

Hi there. How was your weekend? Saturday, Miss C went for a sleepover with her good friend while hubby and I celebrated two separate birthdays in one night. Today Miss C competed in a swimming gala - no medals but she did her best and enjoyed it. That's all that matters.

I completed this following layout on Thursday but didn't have time to post it.

A Day of Frolic
The papers in this collection are so exceptionally gorgeous, it was hard to choose which one to use but I finally settled on this blue bird paper.  I added a subtle texture with clear gloss gel with a chain link stencil. I then added a flower stencil pattern with molding paste for a second dimension. I then brushed on some water colours to make the flowers pop a bit more.  The photo is one my favourites, taken at the Vancouver picnic. I love how her eyes and just a bit of smile shows through the pom pom.
 I think I used up three packs of flowers for this layout - roses, hydrangeas and an assortment pack. Just couldn't stop.
 I fussy cut some tea cups for this corner. I love using bling swirls around the page.
 For the chipboard filigree on the left of this picture, I gessoed and then added layers of water colour and distress paints. I also brushed some gesso on the flowers to mute the colours.
