Prima September BAP - "Smile"

Happy Saturday everyone!

Temperatures are falling quickly over here. Yesterday we had +2C (that's 32F) and almost sleety rain. Brrrr! Perfect excuse for staying indoors though :))

It is also that time of the year when I meet my fellow European Executive Assistants for our Annual General Meeting in a European capital. This year it takes place in my beloved London yay! Leaving on Wednesday and coming back home on Sunday so I will have a couple of pre-scheduled posts next week.

But today is Saturday and I thought I'd share my take on the Prima September BAP. First the sketch. I've kept true to it.

2013 September BAP 

This little guy is the son of friends. 
I have the permission of his parents to use his photo on my page, 
which I have given to them as a gift.

 Stash-raided papers combined with a dash of Delight, 
new embellies and blooms.

 The new Bellas (pale blue flowers) stole my heart with 
their crisp petals and soft colours.

 Prima recently released some gorgeous canvas blooms too. 
I immediately hoarded packs of them.

 Used water colour inks instead of mists on this page. 
Luscious gold mixed with pastel blue and milky white.
IRL it looks like the Milky Way glimmering and shining
in beautiful pools.

 Snapped a resin frame in pieces and used in the corners.

 Prima have oodles of cute little wood embellies. 
Most of the time I use them raw but here I have 
chalked up the butterflies in brown and 
randomly splattered gold water colour ink on them.

 And that's it!
