Beautiful You- Scrap for Help May Challenge.

Here is my reveal for the May Challenge at Scrap for Help


The challenge this month is to use a napkin on your project.


You might wonder where my napkin is right?
Well I used a flower patterned napkin with a red lily on it.
I cut out 2 flowers out of the napkin and separated the layers of the napkin so I would only have the outer layer.
Then using gel medium I adhered it to the page like decoupage.


The red flowers from the napkin are the backdrop for the beautiful garden I created around the photo. I added lots of Prima flowers on top of it.


Underneath the flower arrangement I masked these beautiful Prima stems with some light molding paste. Then I colored them with some new amazing shimmery acrylic paint I found at my local art supply store. This is the best find of the season lol. I just love it and I got them in a few colors.


I always love adding some cheese cloth between the flowers to soften the effect.


This layout was designed Prima's April PPP. Although it has a lot of colors combined together and I usually create monochromatic layouts, I managed to use all the colors and create this beautiful garden.

Oh this is feature-worthy for sure!! So beautiful & yes I did wonder about the napkin initially but now I see it & it's great! Clever!! And WOW that paint sure was a good find. I found some awesome glitter varnish at our hardware store a couple weeks back. That was definitely MY score of the season LOL...
