Carefree- Prima February BAP- GD

It is finally February and that means that I'm the Guest Designer for Prima this month.
I've waited such a long time for it to be my turn. I can't believe its finally here.

I made this layout for the Prima BAP sketch designed by Marie Nicolas.


This is picture of my daughter chasing the seagulls at the beach. She was running so carefree without a hesitation and enjoying every minute of it!!


Isn't this sketch fantastic. It is full of posibilities. I can't wait to see what everyone creates this month.

Here are some close-ups



To create texture and depth, I used some circle chipboard pieces remaining from my 2 Crafty frame. I covered them in gesso and then masked them in Martha Stewart Textured Effect over a circle mask.


I used lots of flowers to add dimension to the layout. Then using gesso I edged all the flowers and papers.


I dabbed and sprayed pink Shimmerz paint over the circles along with some purple acrylic paint.


Finally I added strands of cheese cloth under the flowers and papers.
