Good morning and happy Friday to you all! I am so happy that I got to "play" a bit in my craft room. For one night I didn't do any DT projects, and it just felt good to just goof around and experiment a bit. This week I saw the Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger and knew I had to play along.
It is totally up my alley.
Lace. Soft pastels. Vintage. Love it.
When I first looked at the photo, my initial reaction was that it was entirely a cream color....but closer study showed that there was this soft blue and peach color. I decided to incorporate those into my color palate.
I loved the lacy look of this blouse and used 3 layers of lace to "ground" my flowers around the bottom of my frame. I used a glassine bag as my backdrop to soften the entire card a bit.
I kept the sentiment soft and embossed it in white. I incorporated a doily behind the flowers. And flowers? I used lots of flowers! I didn't want them to look too heavy, so I used creams and added a few vellum flowers that were cut using a Spellbinder's die. I added a few feathers, acrylic accent pieces, vellum leaves, and flower stamens I bought in the bridal department at Michaels.
I popped the frame up a bit using dimensional foam circles. As a finishing touch, a few pale pink sequins were scattered here and there.
I have lots on the agenda today and will be playing chauffeur to my kids.
Storms are supposed to roll in tonight to bring in cooler air.
I'm not a fan of storms, but cooler air would be welcomed!
I am thinking I may do a giveaway this weekend, since I haven't done one in awhile.....so if you get a free moment, please come back to visit! ;)
Have a great weekend!
