Sorry for that. I am constantly told to post more often and I really should! It's really about not taking the time to do things for myself and this effects me in all aspects of my life right now. I have a "to-do" list about a mile long and I have been unmotivated to create lately. I think knowing there is so much on my plate, I get overwhelmed and it causes me to shut down. I think I need to just set aside some time to organize and gather my thoughts. I need to think about one thing at a time, it will be much more productive and a lot less overwhelming.
Wish me luck on this new plan!
OK-onto the project! Here is a layout I created in my hotel room at CHA. I wanted to experiment with Prima's new masks and I just love the Hot Air Balloons! The background paper is a piece from the new Fairy Flora Collection. It was a subtle design so I thought it would work really well for the masking. I sprayed the mask a few times, creating a border on the left. I used Olive Vine Glimmer Mist and then added dabs of glue around the images for the glitter. I sprayed Vintage Pink around the background to warm up the color pallete.
This is a photo of all the Fennell kids on the fourth of July. We take a photo every year out on the dock at the lake when we are all there. It's really the only time of year we are all together for a photo like this. Everyone is so busy and spread out everywhere, so we take advantage of this opportunity.
I layered papers behind the photo and then added the flowers. I chose colors from the photo to compliment it-none of the kids "match" but this works! I love the color palette.
The new bling leaves added a lot of interest to the flower clusters without overwhelming it. I also love the texture and font of the new alphabet Prima released. So fun to use!
And here is a close up of the sprayed areas. I sprayed heavier in some spots than others. I didn't want it to look perfect and that was the look I was going for.
OK-so thats all for now. I do have a mini album i want to share too. I think it needs to be posted all on it's own. I will upload it in a couple of days. Right now-I need to finish some work and get myself ready for some creativity.
Thanks as always for stopping by! I LOVE the comments!
