No Such Joy


Hope you are all having a great new year,
I have found some much needed MOJO and have whipped up this Layout for the 123 Challenge Blog
You needed to have meet 3 criteria
Use the word JOY
have paint splats/ misting
and use Silver

I love this series of photographs that I took of Olivia in Christmas 2010, she started with a gorgeous smile but ended up in a heap on the flower refusing to take anymore photo's. My Baby (she is nearly 4) is very temperamental at times...

I started with the B side of Teresa Collins 'Carolina Breeze' can I say how much I love this paper range, love grey and yellow together. I then grabbed my splat TCW template and used my iridescent medium to give it the silver effect, this stuff is soooo shiny. I then added some Gesso, Black Magic Glimmermist and finished off with some basic pen outlines.

the next thing I did was grab my Christmas Present from my Hubby, my BIG SHOT!!!! I  embossed a piece of acetate, then went looking through my stash thinking what else can I put on this LO, then I decided to go with lime green with the silver. Once this was decided this all ended up coming together really quickly for me. Lots on this page came from my D-Lish Scraps stash, the Velvet flower, carnation, pins, spotty buttons, resin flowers and bird.

The word JOY is actually a mirror word, hence my red shirt was being reflected in the photo... Ooops

anyways hope you like and be inspired to get out some green elements and pop them on a page today
