Here's the sketch:
And here's my take. I've used the new prima lines again and I still have a lot! :) This was a picture taken this New Year's over at Ate Ten's house. I think this was taken after the fireworks have settled. Gio was taking the picture so he wasn't here.
Close up of the several layers of trims and papers I used and the doily which was cut using my Silhouette. The trim on top is prima and was originally creme in color. I misted it with walnut ink because I didn't really want any shine added to it.
Close ups of the flowers and prima stamp. I also spread platinum stickles on the flowers.
And lastly close up of the prima stickers and chipboards. I also used a Heidi Swapp paper which I used for the title - "happiness is..."
If you notice, this layout did not have cutouts so I actually finished this in record time - I don't think I exceeded 2 hours and that's a first for me. And though it did not have my usual cut outs, I loved how it turned out. So maybe I will do more LOs without cutouts soon. But I don't know if I can resist it at all. It took an ounce of strength not to cut today. :)
Anyhow, thanks for looking! Have a great weekend!
