Layout - Poolside {Sabby}




I was chatting with Shar the other day in SV and we have decided to post challenges in her shop.  Shar selected 3 pieces of pp and I have decided to play with it and see what I can come up with for the challenge.  This is the result - I have used Sabby's picture for this lo.  The colours on the the pps were really bright and something which I am not used to but I decided to challenge myself so as to get myself out of my sb rut or scrapper's block.  

I have also created my first own transparency title for this layout.  I have used a rubon on a transparency,  which I have added water droplets from my new glaze pens and a transparent pebble and some blings.  I have also added Crackle Glossy Accents on the alphas on the rubons to see what happens.  To my delight there is slight crackling in the alphas but it didnt spoil the alphas at all. I have also added the Crackle Glossy accents to my blue and green wave and I must say that I love the effect.

The rest of the embellishments were my usual prima flowers and I have added the popular 7 Gypsies stickers in place of the journalling.
 
Materials used:
American crafts pp,  Transparency title,  Prima flowers,  MM journalling notepad,  Crackle Glossy Accents,  Queen and Co blue swirls felt,  Kaiser pearls,  and 3d pop up dots.
