La Vie...Prima Product Pick 34

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, September 5, 2015 @ 12:12 PM | , , , ,

Hi there! I hope you are having a great weekend! I'm still here. Scott and I just returned from a trip to NYC where we helped get Meredith settled in her dorm room. I grew up in upstate NY and have visited NYC many times but it never gets old. So much to see and do and never enough time. Here's a photo of the NY skyline including the Brooklyn Bridge that Scott shot at night from the top deck of a double decker bus:
Today I have a layout to share featuring a variety of Prima products:
I scrapped a trio of photos of Scott and I that were taken while we were vacationing in Paris several years ago:
For color inspiration, I joined along with the September's Prima Product Pick challenge:

I started with a piece of pretty paper from the Timeless Memories 12 x 12 Paper Pad. I added a lots of color using a variety of Mica Powders and beads:
I added lots of texture using a couple stencils along with Modeling Paste and Gesso. I embellished with a cluster of flowers and die cut leaves:
For the title, I used an Antique Cloches:
For sketch inspiration, I joined along with the current Sketchabilities sketch challenge:
Many thanks for stopping by!
Be Sweet ;)
