When I showed this layout to my husband he almost sounded a bit offended and said that she IS a real princess. I had the feeling that he didn’t like the layout… On the layout I tell the story that DD is not a girl who likes to dress like a princess or to hear fairytales about princesses. I’m not that kind of a girl either, but when I found this dress that some ladies made for a Red Cross store I persuade her to buy it. She only wore it once and then she didn't want to. That’s the story behind the title on the page. To match the story I went for kind of a punky look on the layout!
The layout is made for a challenge at Scraplagret where you are supposed to use a lot of stamps and to use something you have cut out.
I used 3 kinds of stamps (5 stamps altogether). This close up shows one stamp colored with ProMarkers that I got from Zima in a kit swatch (gorgeous isn't it?), and two Tim Holtz stamps. The fairy stamp and the flowers are all cut out as required.
The last picture shows two fairy stamps from Prima and one of the Tim Holtz stamps.
I have tried a new technique on the background, blending different colors. What do you think of it?
I wish you a wonderful week full of creative moments! Don't forget to join in at the mixed media challenge that I'm hosting at ARTastic this month! You have until August 31 to finish it up!
