'Play' -for the new combo at Les Papiers de Pandore.

Yay, time for a new beautiful colour combination at Les papiers de Pandore. Lovely springy colours to try and make us forget this apparently eternal winter we are experiencing at he moment. Last night we got about 8 new centimetres of snow at our house....

Here is my page for the combo:

I wanted to use a different photo for this originally but had ran out of ink for my printer so I had to use this older, but cute photo of Beatrice as a cat :-)

Here is the photo of the gorgeous combo we use as inspiration:

I am also entering this into the challenge over at Berry72Blue to use paint on your lo.

I tore the paper to add texture and together with the mask gesso and mists I used I think I created a pretty shabby atmosphere for the photo. I painted and doodled on everything, even the flowers.

The little threads you can see are drawn from cheesecloth and misted yellow. I have used a mix of older and newer collections on this; Lovely Birds, Little Winter Circus and Invitation.
These are all beautiful well made collections by Julie Blanc who is a really wonderful artist
and designer. I absolutely love her work!!

Of course I had to add some pretty flowers here as always.
These are from my stash and by Prima and Petaloo. The tiny ones are by Papirdesign.

I thought it would be fun to incorporate some of my humongous washi-tape collection on this lo. After some thinking I decided to make small pennants and use as a banner with some string. 
I picked tapes that had the colours of the combo and cut off pieces of ca 5 centimetres. 
I made sure the string was in the middle of the tape before  sticking the two sides of the tape together.Then with some scissors I just cut the right shape. 
It could be quite fun to use scalloped scissors for this as well.

I used a ribbon holder chipboard from Dusty Attic as a base for my title. I gave it a lick of gesso and let it dry. Then I used the same gesso through a script mask and misted with yellow glimmermist.Then all thet was left was to doodle with a slick writer from American Crafts around the edges. The letter stickers are fabric ones by Prima.

That was all for today. Why don't you pay a visit to the Pandore blog to see what the others made....? I wish you all a wonderful week end!
