Blue & Green with bling!

This layout is currently on ebay. It is a one page layout with one large photo mat.
As with all of my pages I have included many coordinating tags that fit into the pocket behind the photo mat. They can be used for journaling or extra photos.
The butterfly is a layered paper butterfly but it looked dull on the layout & I wanted it to stand out so I applied Tim Holtz black enamel accents, and used Ranger perfect pearls powder with water in blue, green & gold. I love the perfect pearls!

The flourishes are Tim Holtz grunge board painted with a metallic green acrylic paint and I added alot of bling. I use individual rhinestones & I also cut apart the prima rhinestone flourishes & piece them together to fit the chipboard flourishes. It takes alot of time but I think its worth it when you see the final product.
I like layers of paper & embellishments

Once I think my page is finished I set it aside for a few days then go back to it and almost always I find things I want to change or add & then my page is complete.

Time to watch the Gabby Gifford special.....thanks for stopping by!
