CCG 186 A Perfect Day - April 2011 - MENTIONED IN THE NEWSLETTER
It’s our last challenge celebrating fashion, it was a great month! Our last challenge is to Focus on Design -- layer or stagger the elements in your project this week. This might come easy for most of you, but for those who have yet to give this a try….right now is the time!!!
This is me taken on the last warm day in August 2010, the day after the autumn rains started. It was a perfect day for a picknick in the Stockholm archipelago. I am looking down into my coffee mug where an ant is peddling frantically to get up.
The beautiful teal paper is WP Country Estate and I so wanted the wildly beautiful pattern to show better, especially so when the other side has a delicious gray/white floral pattern. The cardstock is DCWV Linen Closet and has a lovely silvery gray hue. The doilies are a gift from crazily talented Leeann Pearce, thank you sweetie!
I could not be but inspired by the dreamy palette, lovely dots from her dress, the layers of loveliness and of course by her silvery shoes. I am so disappointed the Shimmerz mist in Concrete that I applied around the edges does not photograph at all, IRL it has a gorgeous silvery gray shimmer.
Flowers are all Prima, DA leaf flourish, clock face is MME, the ribbons and lace are a mix from my stash, MME and WP. The chippie thickers are AC. And yes, the photos are matted in black. Thanks for looking at my page, I so appreciate any comments you may want to leave! xx
Hello and welcome to my little corner of the world! My name is Eila Sandberg and I live in Sweden's capital called Stockholm on the east coast by the Baltic Sea. My family is a small one; it's me and my very supportive and patient husband and our 3 cats - Max, Alice and Elsa. I have a grown-up stepdaughter. My friends kindly let me scrap their children if I need willing guinea pigs for a layout. My roots are Finnish but I was born and raised in Sweden. I am an Anglofile and love everything beautiful, London is my favourite city in the whole world. I've been sort of dabbling with scrapping since 2009 but more seriously so since 2010. Scrapping is a wonderful way for me to gain balance and happiness in my otherwise very stressful office life, I scrap mainly 12 x 12 layouts. Thank you for visiting my blog! Your comments make me very happy!
