Sweet & Silly You

I really liked Sassy Scrappers' March Moodboard and though I did not get a chance to play along with their challenge last month, I still wanted to create a layout based on it. When I saw the images that Anita Bownds had put together, it brought to mind a collection of several products from my stash.

Supplies: patterned papers (Pink Paislee and Studio Calico), clear gesso (Liquitex), poppies stamp (Magenta), gelatos and Stamper's Big Brushes (Faber-Castell), Studio G glitter glue (Hampton Arts), tissue paper (Dollarama), Amy Tangerine Foam letter stickers (American Crafts), vellum die cut (Studio Calico), wood frame and Ormulo Cut Aparts (Scraptastic Kit Club), marker (Sharpie)

The poppies reminded me of the beautiful Magenta Poppies stamp which I used to stamp the background and coloured them in with gelatos.  The tissue paper was leftovers from when I experimented with colouring it for this and this layouts. 

The patterned papers (Studio Calico Print Shop and Pink Paislee Color Wash) are from Scraptastic's January 2014 Tongue Tied kit.  I used several other items from that kit, like the Studio Calico Printshop die cuts, the exclusive "smile" wood veneer frame and the exclusive Ormolu Cut Aparts.

Here is the inspirational Moodboard:

Check out this month's April challenge here. It is another great inspirational collection of colours and images. 

The subject of my layout is my beautiful niece who is the quintessential middle child and given that she is such, I am playing along with Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog for In the Middle.

Love this spunky page. The colours and design go very well with that lovely photo. Love how you made the poppies of tissue paper to match the stamped ones.
Very pretty! :-)
