I decided to enter the Prima PPP challenge for this month. I've never entered it before, but thought I'd give it a go. Here it is:
The problem was I had very little navy or red, so had to use some inks and mists. I have to laugh however because each layer I added was to cover up the previous layer until I could no longer add any more before it turned into a mess, so then had to cover up my near muddy mess with larger styled embellishments.
So here is my layout:
Initially I was going to use Prima Sunrise-Sunset Collection 'Aura' as the background but my misting and stamping looked to heavy for my photo, so ended up cutting the paper in strips and using it. I also misted some papers from the Annalee Collection in red and aqua to use for the leaves and flowers. My intention was to use only a light misting so that the design of the paper would show through, but again, I was little heavy-handed.
Other paper I used was 'faith' from the Flights of Fancy Collection for some additional leaves. The stencils I used were the Donna Downey 'floral' and Finnabair 'Sunrise-Sunset', along with the matching stamp and a script stamp also from Prima. Flowers and pebbles are of course, from Prima. Finally, the long black bits are actually twigs that the children were sent to find, that I painted black.
The photo is of my three, with the eldest going to a Japanese dress-up party.
Thank you for looking!
