Hello and Happy Sunday :D. I am full of energy, don't know why, just happy as I can be. Yesterday I got inspired by a sketch I saw at Sketchy Thursday, so I made a layout with it (turned the skecth 90 degrees). When I was looking through all my printed pics, I found one which was taken in the Botanical Garden in Padova. And I thought that was a good moment to unwrap my huge Donna Downey foam stamp that I keep in a secure place in the house. I just love the size of it and look forward to buy another one.
Here is the layout:
It is quite a simple layout, I mean there are no layers of DP on it. The background paper is from October Afternoon, I had to tone down the brightness of if with some Airbrush paint and some gesso. Then I mixed some greens and teals to stamps with and then some black paint droplets and the background was ready for me to build my flower cluster around the pic.
Over at The Creative Type blog the challenge for May is to use foreign phrases on your layout rather than your native language. My title is in Italian, says Beautiful Girls :D. Used TH die to cut the letters and coloured them with lots of distress inks and then covered with Rock Candy crackle paint. And then more and more distress inks. The layout is very dimensional (suprised??), I used Liquid Scrapdots, I am sooo happy that finally we can buy it here, in Europe, cos it is so cool.( I got it from Craft Emporium) To achieve dimensional effect I put the pic onto foam dots and even tucked one of the big flowers under it.
I hope you like it, thanks for stopping by,
