Moving on

I haven't done a lot of scrapping this month, but this layout has taken me almost all month to finish!  I've been watching some tutorials on mixed media techniques and I've been playing around with some of the ideas, trying hard not to make the result look like a hot mess...

I was inspired by the February challenge at ARTastic, with this gorgeous art work by Josh Miels:

Here is my layout:

I'm also entering the February challenge at Creative Embellishments.  The elements I used were hot pink, roses and sparkles (pearls).  I used a chippie from the Flourish Butterflies set, and gave it the ombre treatment with inks:

Other materials:
Basic Grey Gypsy - Harem patterned paper
Basic Grey Perhaps - Julia patterned paper
Becky Higgins Project Life - Jade Collection patterned paper
Prima Rondelle textured canvas alphabets
Ranger Dylusions - Bubblegum Pink ink spray
Tsukineko Versacube - Petal Pink, Orchid, Polar Blue ink pads

Thank you for visiting my blog!
