Hi. This page was created with dual inspiration, I started of with the Scrap Around the World's August Elegant and Textual Mood Board by Marilyn Rivera.
It had a pic of a catwalk model and fashion which is why I chose this photo of my daughter all done up for a ballet concert. She looks like a mini model and she was trying to pose like one :) The mood board also had beautiful yellow and cream colours that I liked so I decided to use that as my colour palette.
I also based my page on the August sketch from Dusty Attic, using some of their gorgeous chipboard pieces. http://dustyatticblog.blogspot.com.au/2014/08/august-sketch-challenge.html
I used the Banana coloured Faber Castel Gelato for the background colour and used the Prima Stencil - Fleur with modelling paste to give some texture.
On the bottom layer of the chipboard piece I covered it in gesso then used The Crafters Workshop stencil - mini Art Is with modelling paste for texture. I then sprayed it with the Lindy's Stamp Gang spray - Glory of the Seas Gold to give only the writing colour. It came up really well. The top piece of chipboard I coated in gesso and coloured with the Banana Gelato.
All my flowers started of white and I sprayed them with the Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays to match the page.
