ENJOY 39

Hi there! I hope you are having a great weekend! As soon as I returned home from vacation I was on a run of sharing design team assignments. Today I have a layout to share that I made just for the sake of being creative :)
For sketch inspiration, I joined along with the Prima August Build A Page Sketch Challenge:
I scrapped a photo of Meredith that was taken approximately 15 years ago or so:
To create this layout, I started with a 12" x 12" piece of watercolor paper. Added texture and design using the Flower stencil along with Opaque Matte Modeling Paste. Once dry, I randomly sprayed Iris Color Bloom Spray Mist followed with LOTS of sprayed water dabbing up the overflow with a baby wipe and drying with a heat tool.
Once dry, I swiped Iris Color Bloom Spray Mist followed with White Gesso across the top to make the swoosh and the lower right corner.


I embellished with a sweet owl, die cut doilies and lots of blossoms:

For color inspiration, I joined along with the current Colour Me...! Colour Challenge as well and for theme inspiration, I joined along with the Try it on Tuesday challenge where the theme is to use stencils:
Prima Products used:
573744-Iris Color Bloom Spray Mist, 962618-Berry Micro Beads, 548667-Whisper Collection Moulin, 961442-Heavy White Gesso, 961350-Opaque Matte Modeling Paste, 584085-Metal Diecut Emmanuelle Fleurs,  Prima Floral Embellishments, 170493-Hydrangea Petals, Lavender, 557614-Prima Flowers, 584047-Parisian Lace Diecut, 572150-Flower Stencil, 892593-Shabby Chic Treasures Owls

Many thanks for stopping by ~ I hope you have a great weekend!
Be Sweet ;)
