Morning. My favourite store was having a DT call and I thought why not give it a go so this is the page I came up with to enter.
I decided to use this pic of my daughter that I've had sitting around for awhile, she looks sweet in it. I'm trying to use the older photos first, I have a massive pile of photos I want to scrapbook it's always hard to choose. I went with the Something Blue paper collection from Prima because I thought the colours in the paper went with the photo well.
I used lots of sprays and gelatos to colour the background, I also added some texture with stencils and modeling paste. On the My Favourite Things: Petal Circle stencil I traced around the dried modeling paste with a watercolour pencil to give it some definition.
I coloured some plain white flowers with the sprays so the colours matched the page.
It had a pic of a catwalk model and fashion which is why I chose this photo of my daughter all done up for a ballet concert. She looks like a mini model and she was trying to pose like one :) The mood board also had beautiful yellow and cream colours that I liked so I decided to use that as my colour palette.
I used the Banana coloured Faber Castel Gelato for the background colour and used the Prima Stencil - Fleur with modelling paste to give some texture.
On the bottom layer of the chipboard piece I covered it in gesso then used The Crafters Workshop stencil - mini Art Is with modelling paste for texture. I then sprayed it with the Lindy's Stamp Gang spray - Glory of the Seas Gold to give only the writing colour. It came up really well. The top piece of chipboard I coated in gesso and coloured with the Banana Gelato.
All my flowers started of white and I sprayed them with the Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays to match the page.

Hi, Its been busy this weekend, I managed to get two pages completely done as well as a full spring clean of our house. This page is for the Once Upon a ...Sketch challenge "The men in our lives" (http://onceuponasketchblog.blogspot.com.au/).
I chose this older pic of my husband and daughter having a nice time together at the beach, as he is the best man in her life. I don't usually put journaling on my pages and I know why as I put a spelling mistake on this page, but otherwise I'm really happy with how I turned out.
I chose blue and red colours to go with the colours in the photo, and to add those colours I used gelatos and Lindy's Stamp Gang Sprays
I found these sea shells at a budget store the other day, they go so well on a beach page
I coloured the chipboard word with gelatos, Acqua Dolce and Boysenberry to give it that two toned effect.
As always I used modelling paste and stencils to give the background texture, as well as some random stamping.

This page was created to enter Prima's Products Picks August Challenge. It had a lovely colour palette of soft pinks, teals and yellow. I went with mainly the pink and teal colours as I thought they looked gorgeous together.
I tried out ripping the background paper and sticking it back together for more texture, it looks better in person than it photographed.
Here's some close ups
