Second take on Scrap Around The World July challenge - "A Most Delightful Lady"

Hello hello!

Hope you are all enjoying summer or autumn wherever you are on our good Mother Earth. A week has already passed of my summer hols and life has taken a leisurely pace, love it!

As I mentioned in my previous blogpost, I made a second page based on the SATW July challenge. This time in other colours and with a more free interpretation of the moodboard and sketch.

Here it is - "A Most Delightful Lady";

Papers used on this one, going from bottom and up;

Swedihs Pion Design "Vintage Garden" (brown)
Swedish Pion Design "Vintage Garden" (stripey)
Prima "Pixie Glen" (pink)
Prima "Romantique" (green with tiny roses)
Prima "Divine"
and then the matting in Pion Design again.

 The chipboard title is from one of Blue Fern Studios' word sets.

This is truly a most delightful lady. Her name is Mrs Brigitte Grenfeldt and she is a gold medal award winning portrait photographer who lives in Stockholm. Her work is exquisite!

This photo was taken by another photographer, Ms Kate Gabor.

The fussy-cut rose trellis is from KaiserCraft.

Background of masking and misting, painting in Lindy's Stampgang's Saltwater Taffy (pale pink) and Twinkling H2O Gold. Very subtle again. Tim Holtz filmstrip and more Prima goodies.

Melissa Frances bling and Blue Fern Studios Symphony Corners - Medium. I painted the chippie in white acrylic paint and touched up in gold dito before tracing them in liquid pearls in pink. Looks kind of cool IRL and has a beautiful lustre.

Symphony Corners - medium (075285)

This is a VERY heavy page.

Thank you so much for taking the time to come for a visit. I am working my way to many many blogs at the moment to make up for my absence during May and June. Thank you so much for not giving up on me!

See you next Saturday if you want to. I'll share my take on the Skissedilla July challenge then. Take care!
