A while back, I blogged about my search for nuns in pink habits while in Rome. And today, I've finally gotten around to creating a layout in honor of my obsession. Since I didn't actually SEE any pink nuns in Rome, I wanted to make the background very, well, pink. And I wanted it to be frothy and girly and just plain fun (for me, anyway). So I grabbed some Prima: papers, flowers, and bling. I can't think of a company that does over the top girly better than Prima does. I pulled out all my pink paints, inks, and Glimmer products. And this is what I came up with:
I added tons and tons of flowers:
And coated these Melissa Frances cherubs with a light layer of pink Glimmer Glam:
I used a Glimmer Screen and a couple of shades of pink Glimmer Mist to create this water color element:
I painted some white chipboard letters with pink paint, and used pop dots to fit them over top of the pearl bling:
I had originally intended to put my journaling directly above the watercolor element. But, I quickly realized that, first, my nun story was kind of long and wouldn't fit in that space, and, second, I didn't want all that black or brown ink marching across my pink layout. So I wrote out my journaling on a 5x7 card and attached it to the back of my layout.
I'm enjoying this extra day off from work. My parents are coming down for a short visit, and Mom is going to share some of her cross stitch designs for next month's market. Can't wait to see what she's been up to. Happy crafting, everyone!
