Scrap Around The World December challenge - close-ups of my page "You Dream"

Hello beautiful peeps!

This sure is a busy time for us all, not long before Christmas now! Happy to say I'm all done with the gifts whohoo!

Today I'm sharing the close-ups of my page for the Scrap Around The World December challenge. Here's first the soft and dreamy moodboard by Zanka aka Zaneta Glowa to jog your memory.

I was inspired by all the different patterns, the soft golden yellow in the bottom right picture, the crackle in the photo with the ring and of course the hints of teal in the frames. The dew drops on the flowers and the overall feel of the moodboard.

My initial thought was to create something with frames but then my page morphed itself and ended up looking completely different.

I am being a good girl again, everything on this page 
is stash-raided. 
Even used scraps which I normally don't do.

The base is this flocked paper from KaiserCraft's 
"Magnolia Grove" collection. 
On it I layered left over scraps from Prima's "Delight" collection 
and added masking/heavy matte gel with 
a small floral patterned mask 
before I washed everything in diluted gesso.

Next I covered everything in light matte gel and 
added the softest hints of gold mist and 
Ingvild Bolme's chalk edger in Peach and Pastel Blue 
before spritzing with water and smooching it out with my fingers.

Then more masking with heavy modeling paste 
and Shimmerz TextureZ in Sandy Stone.

The young lady in the photo is my stepdaughter Emelie.


Lastly I dabbed on Shimmerz TextureZ in Tidy Widy with a sponge, 
that's the gritty texture seen in the photo, 
and randomly applied some Shimmerz DazzlerZ in Spun Sugar 
for subtle lustre.

Et voilà!

Thank you so much for taking the time to come for a visit, I truely appreciate it!

I will be back on Wednesday, 18 Dec.

Toodelipip! xoxo
