ART 45

Mona Pendleton | Friday, September 12, 2014 @ 9:45 PM | , , , ,

Hi there! I hope you are having a great weekend so far! Today I have a layout to share featuring a photo of a gorgeous work of art that was taken in the Louvre museum while we were vacationing in Paris:
For color inspiration, I joined along with the September Prima Product Pick challenge:
I combined fun patterned papers from the Prima Cartographer collection along with several Prima Trinkets and a variety of Prima flowers:
To add additional interest to the background, I used a Prima stamp and a Prima stencil along with various paints and embossing enamel:
I topped the layout off with Prima crystals:
For sketch inspiration, I joined along with the Scrap Africa challenge. I'm also entering this layout in the current Craft Hoarder's Challenge where the theme is All The Pretty Flowers:
Thanks so much for stopping by ~ I hope you have a great weekend!
Be Sweet ;)
