Good morning and happy Sunday to you all!!
It's been a busy week here again and quite a few days between updates....
Still, I am very happy to see you here and want to share my latest layout that I did for Les Papiers de Pandore and that is also the base for this months sketch.
I used the newest collection called "Little Winter Circus" which is so full of cute whimsy!
In my previous layout 'Skating Fun' a couple of posts down, you can see the papers 'clean' with no gesso or paint on them. But for this layout I wanted to show that these papers can look shabby too, with some mixed media added.
This is the beautiful and versatile sketch:
On the Pandore blog you can see lovely interpretations from DT members Helen and Jennife,too.
The flowers are recent ones from Prima Marketing. And to add to the wintery feel I punched a bunch of snowflakes from the pp. I used a chipboard snoflake as a template for my oversized yellow one and added glitterglue to the edges. I used two different masks from Crafters Workshop, - bricks and diamonds.
I added some mist here and there, and as always it sprayed in directions I had not anticipated and left large splashes all over my photo...! Luckily for this post I was able to remove them digitally, but they are still left on my photo so I may try to exchange it for a 'clean' one later.
Feels like it's the second lo in a row that happens to me...
Underneath my flower cluster I matted with one of the 'petit coupons' from the cards sheet.
The pretty washi tape with golden dots was used to hold together the packaging on a DT-kit I received from the States. Don't you just love recycling.. :-) ?
A couple more close ups and I'm done...
I hope you enjoyed my wintery layout. For those of you with papers from Les Papiers de Pandore, and any collection is ok not just the latest ones please join in our challenge and post your layouts on the Pandore Facebook page. Who knows,..might be your lucky day!!
Oh, I almost forgot (I actually posted before I remembered...LOL )....
I won the Mix and Match challene over at Websters Pages with this layout!
My first ever posted there. Talking about some serious beginners luck .. :-)!
I am delighted, and I will receive a kit of my choice. Isn't that great!?
Here's a screen shot:
Hopefully I will get some creating done today!
