PPC 104 Guest Designer!

I'm so excited to have won the Playing in Paradise sketch challenge! You can see my winning project here. As the winner I get to be guest designer for challenge # 104- "Add a little sparkle!"

My project for this challenge is a scrapbook page of a summer BBQ. I started by spraying Kraft cardstock with mists over some stencils. I used Smooch Spritz in purple and Dylusion Sprays in blue, yellow and light green. I didn't plan it, but when I cut out the tire swing it fit perfectly inside the doily stencil! I then spayed on Tsukineko Shimmer Spray in gold all over to add shimmer.

I then placed on the tree border and banner from a Simple Stories 12x12 page and my pictures. After layering on the rest of the elements, including die cut letters from pink glitter paper, I brushed Rock Candy Stickles across the banner and then added dots of Stickles. I used Stickles on the tree border and the flower brad and placed pink gems in the tree. As my last sparkling touch I added some jewelled chipboard flowers in the bottom right corner.

It was fun to add so many sparkly elements to my page. Be sure to enter your project on the Playing in Paradise blog and you just might be the next winner!  Thanks for stopping by :)
