enjoy 40

Hi there! Hope you are off to a great start of the new week! Today I joined along with the January Prima Product Pick challenge:
I made a layout featuring a photo of my sweet daughter Angie several years ago when she was experimenting with various hair colors ;)
I combined pretty papers from the Prima Ephiphany collection along with various Prima blooms:
I added texture to the background using a Prima stencil, Prima Modeling Paste, Light Paste and Prima Gesso:
I added splashes of color using various Prima Color Bloom sprays to the background and to the Prima die cut gear embellishments:
I also embellished with a pair of die cut ice skates that I made using a Sizzix die. After painting, distressing and lacing up the skates, I adhered a die cut sprayed heart:
Here are a few of the products used to create this layout:
For sketch inspiration, I joined along with this week's Let's Get Sketchy sketch challenge which I rotated 90 degrees:
Many thanks for stopping by ~ I hope you have a great week!
Be Sweet ;)

Mona,
As always, a beautiful layout of your pretty daughter. I really like the texture and the colors and, especially, the black/white photo - it just stands out wonderfully. Thanks for sharing.

P.S. I made my first Mixed Media project - a tag - after a long stretch of making only cards. My blog is www.enteringkathyville.blogspot.com. If you get a chance, maybe you could give me a few pointers - which I would greatly appreciate. My next project is a scrapbook page layout.
