Layout for 123 Get Scrappy: Love you, Beautiful

It's time for another great challenge grid at 123 Get Scrappy:

Again, there were many great and easy options to choose from. But this time I wanted to challenge myself a bit and went with the top row: Lace - Mint color background - Feather. Especially for the fact that mint is so not my colour. Something I use very, very, very seldom! :D

And this is my layout:

The inspiration for this page was the picture of my daughter, taken last summer. Her blue/mint T-shirt and pink trousers fixed the base color palette for this project. I love layering little elements on the layout, and thought that the paper, transparent and embellishment collection by Heidi Swapp was just perfect for this project.

Feathers and chipboard 'Beautiful' are from Prima.

Blue leaves under the photo are die-cut using my all time favourite Sizzix die.

Before attaching any embellishments I stenciled flowers and leaves on the layout background. Medium is standard texture paste I colored with drops of mint mist. The stencil from Prima is quite new, and I can already now say that this one will be used frequently!

I hope you a nice day. Thanks for stopping by. Please leave a comment so that I know you were here! <3 p="">
