Today is my turn to reveal challenge #2 at The (Paper) Trail Makers Challenge blog. This time, the challenge consists to create a project according to this fabulous sketch by Amarilys Doria.
To see the sketch, I strongly recommend to visit The (Paper) Trail Makers Challenge blog. Please be sure to scroll down to see more gorgeous takes on the sketch.
Here is my take on the beautiful sketch designed by Amarilys.
I am the little girl in the picture. The photo was taken on March 1975 when we lived in Panama. I was in my bed with all my toys. This layout title is "Once upon a springtime", since the picture represents my life spring's season.
To create my layout, I painted the big scallop circle chipboard frame from my stash with acrylic paint. Then, I attached it to the gorgeous Graphic 45 "Fairy Folk"patterned paper. The "Butterfly Kisses" patterned paper was used as background.
I attached some paper strips created with my edge scallop border punch. I matted the original photo with vanilla cardstock and attached the beautiful blue frame on the top with pop-up glue dots. Finally, I added three buttons at the left of the blue frame. I like the subtle colors from the buttons included in the march kit and how they combines beautifully with the Graphic 45 papers.
The Melody Ross chipboard tag included in the March kit from Leave a Paper Trail was painted acrylic paint too. Then, I attached a patterned paper die cut tag and applied Glossy Accents to the lady's dress. Love the angelic feel glossy accents adds to the dress from the tag.
This post shows several ways how to use Glossy Accents.
The original color of all the flowers in the layout is white. I applied the following mists: Shimmerz Vibez Hot Fudge and Tattered Angels "Snow Queen" to combine better with the gorgeous Graphic 45 papers and the buttons.
The fabric button and beige doily are from Purple Pumpkin.
The rose at the flower's center is one of the twelve Prima Fairy Tale roses included in the kit. Love that they came in white color so I can easily modify them according to my project.
I used five Prima Fairy Tale roses for each flower at the right section of the layout.
Hope, I have inspire you to use this sketch. If you create a project with it, please let me know, I will love to see!
