Finally a new layout to share

Well I have been trying to get back into the creative swing now for a while... I kept putting the page together and taking it apart... I finally glued averything down... enough madness!!!  Hopefully this unblocks my creative mojo which I thought had abandoned me.

Here is what I finally ended up with, I kind of like it.  I haven't given design tips in a while but I guess that my biggest challenge with this page was in the final assembly process... How to adhere everything to my page.  So here are the assembly dets...

The cardstocks, pattern paper and lace trim went down first with my tape runner.  I wanted lots of texture so I dipped paper strips in Gesso and layered them on the misted pattern paper and it dried solidly attached to the layout... next the wahi tape... I don't think I need to tell you how I set that down... lol.  The pearl strand went next along with the flowers and leaves, I used hot glue for that... Oh the ghost star shapes in the corners were stapled with my mini attacher and the Dazzler birds, glue dots of course.  So there you go... Don't be afraid to use whatever works and makes sense to you.   The altough it did take forever... it did I always find that the biggest challenge once you are happy with the way a layered page like this looks is how to get everything down... no easy task with a truly dimentional layout.  Well first things first, here is what the complete page looks like...

I am submitting this page to a Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge as there 75th challenge is all about Pearls and Flowers (Pearl strand and flower center and well I am sure you can see some flowers on the page :) I love flowers) as well as the ScrapFIT Workout #79 - Tape it up (clear prima washi tape behind the photo and on the photo behind the bird cage).  And last but definatly not least at Show Us Your Stuff - November challenge - Yellow + Washi tape.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look at my latest project.
