Hi everyone!!
I hope you all had a great weekend and are looking forward to the coming week!! I am looking forward to school going back today for the final term before summer holidays!!! 

 Today I would like to share my take on October's BAP over at Prima!!
Make sure you check out their blog for the awesome DT Inspiration..

Here is the sketch:


I have mirrored the sketch so that the images are on the other side and I have added 4 photo's instead of 3. I have also divided my title above and below the photos, swapping it around at the bottom with the journalling.
And here is my take on it:

'Your Smiling Face Is My..... Happy Place'

Don't you just adore those faces!!!! 
For the title i have written the first part in gold Gel pen at the top above the painted feathers, using the Ingvild Bolme metal plate as the end of the title.

For my background I have used Mica Powders in Green, Frozen Lake, Deep Water and Summer Sky, mixing up the powder with only a small amount of water to get a sparkly kind of paint, which results in a more solid color, along with Soft Teal Color Bloom Spray and two 13 Arts Mists. Other than these 2 mists and the Washi Tape and of course White cardstock, everything else is Prima.
Once again I have drawn some feathers on my background..... I really love the way they turn out.

Some Details:

I have brushed my flowers with gesso, then added splatters of varying Mica powders and the same mist colors used in the background.

I have then used soft Mat Gel to glue the Platinum Glass Glitter and Splash Microbeads to my flowers and certain areas of the background.

I have tucked various prima embellishments, eg. metals and resins, among my flower cluster for added interest and texture.

I have mostly used papers from an older Prima Collection 'Hello Pastel', along with a piece or 2 of Garden Fable papers.

I have outline all my photos with a touch of Heavy Gesso to help separate them a little. 

 That's all from me today, but I will have more to share in a couple of days...... Make sure you stay tuned into my blog too as I will have some exciting new to share with you sometime in the next few weeks!!!

Have a great week everyone!!
