What are lil girls made of......

.....Sugar & Spice & Everything Nice :))

Im back again with another baby girl project - this time a 12X12 scrapbook layout. I just couldn't go beyond the gorgeous Kaisercraft Bundle of Joy papers I used for the Card in a box and decided to make this layout with the left over paper from this project.

The colour scheme was inspired by the mood board at Scrap Around The World - January 2014 Challenge # 9 - A Soft & Beachy Mood Board by Kim Ewins. The design team has some really inspiring layouts too.

There were so many ideas I got from this picture - picnic at the beach, cycling tour, tea party, banners, glass beads..... but couldnt find a picture and sketch to go..... Then last week, the Scrap your Scraps prompt at Lulupu craft lounge pushed me to think again. So from the mood board, I chose to use the soft pastel shades of pink, grey, teal.I had half a dozen strips and a few squares left from my previous project and used these for layering my photograph.

The sketch for my layout is inspired by this one posted at Scrap365.I started by creating the background on cardstock using heavy structure gel medium mixed with acrylic paints through a TCW stencil.Then tried to stiple pink fevicryl pearl paint through another stencil but didnt quite get it right. When I tried to scrape the paint off with my palette knife, I liked the effect so thats how I managed to get the pink on the two corners. Next had some fun making splats... maybe over did this a little. 

I had to be creative about layering as my scrap stash was mostly strips and a couple of squares. A tip: The pink polka dot and pink script papers are not one long strip but cut and tucked underneath on either side of the photograph.  

Finally, stamped words randomly around the page in peach and pink. Some of these are embossed with pearl embossing power, some of the stamping I left as is. Lastly, touched up some places with complementary inks and water colour pencil...... Ta Da.... my layout was complete. Always feels sooooo goood when I complete a project. I wish I had more time to create.

To all the scrapbook challenge blogs a BIG HUGE THANK YOU from me..... not only for hosting challenges but also for creating a community for scrappers like me to be a part of.
