Prima GDT June BAP - "Mischievious Smile"

Hello again beautiful friends!

I am absolutely bowled over and so moved by all the love I have been showered with since the announcement of my GDT spot with Prima a couple of days ago. There are not enough words to describe how happy I am - bless you all!

As promised I am sharing my take on the BAP with you today. First a reminder of what the sketch looks like;

BAP June Mani 

I find hexagons a quite challenging shape even if I 
think they look really cool.
So I had to think about something that reminds of them.

Here is my take - "Mischievous Smile"
The beautiful lady in the photo is my editor at 
Scrap365 Magazine - the one and only Alison Parris

I have said many times before how I love Prima's 
wooden ATC cards and no doubt I will be saying it 
many times again.
Here I have used them natural as they come out 
of the pack, just look at their golden tone 
and all the gorgeous patterns!

The beautiful mint green fabric flowers came all the way 
from Canada in a most generous parcel from one of 
the kindest gals in the industry - 
Keren Tamir thank you sweetie!
 Love how the Color Blooms and Fluid Chalk Edgers 
can be used to tint both wood icons and resin pieces.

I heard Prima is working hard with the DT applications and the 
other day they had narrowed down the shortlist
from 100 to 45. Don't envy Prima one bit having to make all
the decisions with all the incredible talent out there!
Good luck to everyone who has applied!

Toodelipip! xoxo Eila

  6. Wonderful layout Eila! I love the blue scheme & the soft flower clusters you have created, together with your treatment of the resins. Congrats again on your prestigious GDT!
