This page is based on Sketch 145 at Creative Scrappers, I used some of my TCP Grandmas Attic papers from my last Swirlydoo Kit. I wanted a neutral background so that the quilling would not get lost on the page so I used the pattern paper as the base and I used some as a mat layer for my pictures and also to cover the alphas that I sugared. Here are a few close-ups...
For the alphas I started with raw chipboard letters covered them with the pattern paper then I used some smooch on a paint brush around the edges and covered the letters with glossy accents and dipped them in Diamond Dust.
Paper Issues is running a challenge right now - Birds & Bees (&Butterflies) so I am going to play with them and since Lasting Memories challenge right now is - You are the boss, which means anything goes I am going to participate there as well as Creative Scrappers, Swirlydoos, Scrapbook Star and Scrapbook.com
Well thanks for looking hope you are inspired to try something that you have not done in a while!
