This layout is once again of the beautiful Meghan. This
time though it is off her very first ballet lesson. She was
so happy and excited to finally be learning.

I have done the LO for the word challenge at 
Bird Is The Word. The word for this challenge is DANCE
and I have used their sketch below.

This is my take on the sketch.

The other challenge I also placed my LO in is Scrap Around The World.
I love the mood board which you get too work from. For Challenge #6
it is a fresh and modern mood board and I thought this layout was just
perfect for it. As soon as I looked at it I thought - Girly, lace doily, flowers
soft colors with a hint of bright cheer.

My back ground paper is Prima's patterned paper "Envoy" I used 
my Maya Road stencil on it with texture paste. Once dry I then 
used Artic - Old Rose, Tim Holtz - Mustard Seed and Peeled Paint
 Inks over the top. With Prima's Crackle stencil I used Versa - Cryan.

The little blue birds I fussy cut from Prima's "Chanson" paper.
The flowers on the LO are from Prima - " Overture" and also from
Enthaily. The doily heart is from Charley's Cache and I have inked it 
with Artnic - Old Rose and then lightly inked the edge with Tim Holtz
Distress Ink - Gathered Twigs, the same ink I used on the edge off my
patterned papers .

The word DANCE is Cre8tiv foam alphabet stickers. The ornate resin
from around the title I made with one off my resin molds and then I 
antiqued it with acrylic paint.

As you can see on the closeup below I have used two ballerina 
embellishments. The gold one is from Creatives. The other is a 
chippie from Scraptopia who I DT for. I have used modelling 
paste on it to give it texture. When it dried I used Arctic - Old Rose,
Tim Holtz - Mustard Seed and Peeled Paint inks with a makeup
sponge to color it. The rhinestone flourish is from Kaiser Craft -
and it is Antique Rose.
