Scrap Around The World August challenge - close-ups of my page "Every Day"

Hello again!

I'm back with close-ups of my  take on the SATW August challenge that I am hosting.

First the moodboard and sketch;


This month our merit winner will receive this huge prize pack from Green Tara!


Our random winner will receive an electronic gift voucher 
to the value of US$25 from "A Cherry On Top" courtesy of me!


Now to my page - "Every Day";

I got inspired more by the flow of details in the photos than the actual details themselves - the flowers tumbling down the cake, the silvery shine of the jewellery in the 2nd photo 
& the richness of the bracelets in the 1st.
The circular shapes of the sketch translated themselves into the flowers & chipboard clock. I used the pale teal from one of the feathers & the white from the cookie icing dust for my main colours.
Heartfelt thanks to Green Tara who very generously sponsored the white organza Tutus & the adorable yellow silk Primulas on my layout. Their kind sponsorship included many more beautiful Green Tara blooms I will be using on future layouts.
I normally use at least 3 different papers on my pages but this time I've only used one from KaiserCraft.

Masked little blooms with pink liquid pearl centres.

Chippie title is from Blue Fern Studios. It was painted in white acrylic paint and sprinkled with small white pearls.
