Prima April Colour Palette

Oh my! ... such luscious inspiration could be found in Prima's Picks for April.

I fell in love with not only the Prima Palette but also the design and whimsical feel of the Prima Picks photo.  It became my inspiration for this layout of my daughter's post performance dance photo from 2008.

Bits and pieces all bursting with fun and fresh colours and, of course, the requisite flowers, butterflies, and bling, were all part of the look I was going for with this one.

The ruffled lace technique under the photo was inspired by my friend Tanya's lace ruffle on her Nook April Inspiration Class layout. I just love the dimensional effect it gives along with the textured flock of the Prima teal-turquoise coloured patterned paper.

Some inking and creative stamping techniques, I rotated the edge of a damask stamp to create the border stamp brush effect, and some Glimmer Mist for a little sparkle on the orange butterflies completes the look.

You are so sweet, Cass and thanks for the mention ;) Your layout is perfect, I LOVE what you did with the stamp around the edge.
