The Color Room Palette #50

This week The Color Room presented their 50th Colour Palette.  Along with the palette they presented a Blog Hop to all of the DT's blogs.  I had so much fun completing the blog hop and got soooo many good ideas that I wanted to try in a LO.

This is what I created with the Colour Palette above

 I think this would have to be my favourite LO that I have done yet

"Once Upon A Time" - Title was done using Kaszazz stamp with Tim Holtz distress ink - Faded Jeans.
I then went over the words with a small dose of Crackle Accents by Ranger.

I used some white embossing powder to emboss the Magnolia stamp (by Kaszazz) and then sprayed the area with Smooch Spritz - Sea Kiss.  I also created so sploches using watered down paint & a straw (this idea came from the blog hop). 
I added a few hand cut butterflies to the rolled area to create a little more detail.

I wanted to note the age of this photo...... it is my Grade 1 photo taken in 1989 - I used small alphabet stickers in order to do this.  I wanted to give a little something extra to the rolled back area and therefore placed a strip of sticky bling along the edge of the roll.

A better view of the sticky bling.  I created the laced section with some small eyelets and some navy blue satin ribbon.

I have used some lace under the photo, this lace was originally white and I used the watered down paint to add some colour to it.  I have also used a script stamp and Faded Jeans distress ink to add some more dimension to the background.  I have used 2 different papers to mount the photo - this paper was wet and crumpled - then opened back up and dried out.
I am just loving Prima at the moment and have used some Prima flowers and pearl accents - there are also a few miniture roses in the flower cluster.  I have also cut out a butterfly and added it to the cluster.

Thanks for looking..................
