June Scrap the Girls

Hi Scrap the Girlies!!

Yay!! It's the first of the month!  Something I always look forward to as it means a whole new set of Challenges.

I'm here to share this month's Scrap the Girls Challenge!

This time it's a sketch, and I absolutely love it!!

It's not my usual style.  I don't usually scrap so flowery, but as soon as I saw it I knew what I wanted to do.
So it's time to jump in!
Here's my layout:
This one is about my gorgeous little niece Yvy who lives in Texas.  She is just the cutest.  I recently spent some time with her and well, yep she stole my heart.
I painted the flowers with watercolour paint, and then cut them out!
So Simple and I had such fun creating them.
I attached them to the layout with foam tape to give some dimension.

I added some gorgeous 2Crafty Chipboard - my absolute favourite chipboard company. I used a "6
' Revolution Frame" around the photos, "Those Eyes Title" and "Leafy Shrub Set 1".

I inked the frame and title with a gorgeous turquoise.

I applied gesso to the leafy shrubs but then felt like they got a little lost. 
So I decided to trace parts of them onto my background using a black pen.
I really liked the whimsical feel this created, and it rekindled my love affair with doodling.
I also added a few dots to my painted chipboard.

I finished with a few flicks of paint and the all important journaling.

This month we have a prize from Charm's Creations.

So for your chance to win some gorgeous handmade embellishments, head on over to the Scrap the Girls blog and link up your layout!!
