Full of Beauty

This weeks challenge over at Lasting Memories is all about bling. Now that is something I don't ever have a problem incorporating! And have you seen the inspiration photo over at Lil Red Wagon?...yummy!
 Since it was time again for the 24 Hour Challenge at Scrappin-N-Chattin, I decided to cover a few challenges in one. I love this challenge! I had to use Glitz Vintage Blue collection and this sketch.
Here is my take and a few close ups.

First, how cute are these pictures of my two youngest grand daughters? I made the headbands and tutus for them.

For the title, I used tiny alphas and a flocked rub on by Prima. Have you used the flocked rub ons yet? I love them! There are several styles and they go on so easy. I added some shabby chic treasures also by Prima, plus added a flower with spays and leaves.

I added one of my handmade shabby flowers that matches the headbands and filled it in with leaves and silk rose buds. Peeking beneath them is a chipboard flourish by Dusty Attic. I covered it with gesso, then added a few different ink colors, and finished it off with Diamond Dust. I should have taken a picture before adding the flowers so you could see how sparkly it is.

I also added a row of these fabric shabby roses. They were white and I misted them so they would fit in with my color scheme. 

I incorporated a couple of my handmade butterflies along with some handmade tiny roses. I rubbed some ink around the outside of the bling shape to give a shadow effect.

Above the journaling, I did some heat embossing with some very sparkly blue powder, and added some pleated ribbon along with flowers and leaves. I added Stickles to all the leaves.

Thanks for stopping by!

Theresa, your work is so gorgeous and you really got the handle on this shabby chic look. I love the way you embellish your is a real art and one I just can't seem to grasp. This layout is lush and beautiful and those headbands/tu-tus are the cutest things ever.
