"Dear Dreamroad" Layout - Prima Build-a-Page Sketch
Competition - Prima Stationer's Desk/Princess
Collections & Ingvild Bolme Resins & Metals

Hi there all!  Back as promised today to share the close-ups 
of my Dear Dreamroad layout {using the Prima BAP for May}.

I started off with some paper from the Stationer's Desk Collection, 
which was bluish grey so perfect for my photos, helped along 
with some more blue misting.

For my 2 main accent colours I chose black & white so stencilled with both 
colours using different Prima masks.  I used Wendy Vecchi black embossing 
paste for the circle stencil, which was a bit thin for it so it leaked a bit, but it 
all adds up to a cool mixed media look so doesn't bother me.

I also used Prima flowers, acrylic pebbles, arrow bling & Ingvild Bolme resins & tassles.

I also used some Prima art tiles, brads & a couple of older flowers that
 I LOVE & was SO HAPPY to finally be able to find the perfect page for ♥

I also used some of the new Say-it-in-Crystals sparklers that are great
 for filling in here & there in your clusters & at opposite corners of the
 page if you love diagonal compositions like I do.

I tucked in a couple of light-bulb embellishments from Ingvild Bolme too
 & also used a couple of very awesome Princess Collection paper-clips,
 which are GREAT embellishments as they are so unisex.

I just ADORED the sketch & went with the whole feel of it which 
resulted in a very free interpretation that I really enjoyed!
