Tiny Freckles

Hey everyone! It's been a while since I've blogged. I have tons of work to share so I have lots of posts scheduled for the next several days.

Today I want to show you a layout that I did some time ago but forgot to post. I just had to do a layout about Larissa sweet little freckles around her nose.

I used a few small pieces from Kaisercraft's Devonshire collection which inspired this colour pallette of soft oranges, blues and greens. I only had one sheet of this paper so I cut it up and used small pieces of it around the layout.

The colour inspiration ------->>>>>
The how to ------->>>>>
To create the mask for the background, I used pieces of a piece of Marth Stewart lace cardstock. I cut the lace cardstock up and taped it to a circle to create this mask. It's not pretty but it does the trick! For the mist, I used a combination of orange Maya Mist and gold Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist. I mixed them together in a separate bottle to get this soft orange colour. It worked out just great because one colour was too strong the the other too light but together they were the perfect mix.

I decorated the inside of my circle with layers and layers of cream lace. The masked flowers are bordered by gathered tulle and pearls.

Thanks for stopping by today!
