A published lo to share. :-)

Hi it's me again!
Today I found this among some older photos I was looking on my computer today.
I had almost forgotten about it :-)

This layout was published in the previous issue of Swedish scrapbook magazine Inzpira.
I was delighted to be included in the mag as I am not one to send in applications very often.
I think this was only my second time.
( I tried once with a lo for Scrapbook Trends, even if I knew my style was not theirs,... :-) )
I made this one for  musical theme and also after a sketch in that issue.

Here are a few close ups:

I cut the leaves from gold cardstock and also added some gold paint here and there on my page.
I white-washed the little frame for my title with gesso and smeared on a little gold to give it a more vintage look.

I used a mask with gesso to build up the background and I also added a small dash of pink mist
as well as gold arrows. The red chevrons and the teal strips are washi tapes.

Finally, a closer inspection of my 'edge-ruffles' if I may call them that.
I cut several strips and work on each one of them to achieve this distressed look.

Thanks for dropping by and thanks for your kind messages!
