Prima - February BAP

I LOVE Prima products, but unfortunately don't have much in my little stock. What I do have, are some older papers, so thought I'd use them to enter their February BAP (at the last minute).
I loved the sketch by Marie-Nicolas Alliot:

And my interpretation, using Prima's Fairy Flora papers:

And some close-ups:

Apart from Prima paper and flowers, I used a Prima stamp, die-cuts (Sizzix and Silhouette), Glimmer Mist, watercolour pencils, punches (EK Success and Martha Stewart), texture paste (coloured with acrylic paint and Glimmer Mist), some little pearls from my stash and alphas from Sassafras.

This is a little different for me (no white cardstock), but I wanted the layout to be soft to suit the photo. The photo itself, I cut the background out from around my daughter in Photoshop, and used a soft paper and a bokeh effect from Anna Aspnes in its place. I haven't done any journaling on the page as I also used this photo on my digital Project Life project:

I don't normally share my PL, but thought I'd just show this page. Last year I did the paper version of PL and happy to say I made it to the end of the year, but this year, thought I'd go digital so that I can then print them off and have a folder for each of my children. For those interested, I'm using templates from Katie Pertiet (Designer Digitals).

Thankyou for coming by.
