Swinging Lucia

This is my DT layout for ARTastic's January Challenge. The challenge is to get inspired by the painting Ecstasy of Saint Cecilia by Raphael. You should also try to include clouds, an angel embellie and 2-3 musical instruments on your layout.

In Sweden we celebrate Saint Lucia in December and I thought that a picture of DD taken on this special occasion was perfect for this challenge. I thought it would be fun to use this cut out paper as a background instead of cutting out pieces to use. I decorated it with some gesso to make it look like clouds (or snow). You’ll also find clouds – and 3 instruments – on the left of the layout. The angel embellie is placed on the right side of the picture.

And here’s some close ups. The chipboard is painted with Distress Stickles in silver and gold. The gorgeous white flowers are from Jenni Bowlin. One of them is decorated with a trim from Webster’s cut in small pieces.

Thanks for looking! I hope that you want to play along!!! You can check out the other DT ladies gorgeous layouts here!
