I Wonder

This is a 12 x 12 layout I created for Once Upon A Sketch's new challenge.  Let me tell you this blog has some amazing artist as part of their design team and it's an inspiration just to go over and take a look. I'm constantly amazed at how much detail I add to my pages and yet it really doesn't look that hard when I post them to my blog. 

For the base page I used Prima paper and sprayed with Tattered Angels and a Prima mask the outline of the swirls, then I sprayed the mask with the pink Tattered Angels and laid it in the negative space for the double effect. 
I actually cut thin strips of paper and sewed through the circle by making slits with an exacto tool.  I felt it just needed that pop of blue on the circle and this was a great solution.  I used Coredinations papers for the Fleur De Lis boarder and then sanding. 
The banner for the title is from Dusty Attic and it to was sprayed with T.A, along with the fonts and the rose ribbons.  Of course you know me I had to add some pearls with baubles but also one of my new loves...liquid pearls.  They are awesome.  The butterflies are from Prima along with the sparkly green fonts used. 

I love the fact that Once Upon a Sketch requires you journal.  This is something I always have to push myself to do but am so happy with the final outcome when I do. 

Have a great first of the week and I'll see you Wednesday.
