"Time Flies" Layout {2Crafty Chipboard} Prima BAP

It's my turn again over on the 2Crafty Chipboard blog today,
so I'm sharing my first layout with you - "Time Flies", using a
recent photo of my youngest daughter on her 14th birthday.

I used the Prima BAP as my inspiration.  A very lovely sketch by dear Keren.

I used a couple of the 6" Circle Revolution Frames - one behind 
the photo stack & one right on top of the photograph.  
{They are purchased as one set with many 'rings'}.
  I gessoed it & used a Gold Ranger paint dabber on the side curves.  

Finally I used one of the pairs of beautiful Prima Wooden Doors 
that I've had in my stash for a couple of years now - I was really excited
 to get them but have found them a bit tricky to place.  I muted these
 with some gesso which I wiped over with a wet sponge.  

I also used 3 out of 6 butterflies from the "Sharon's Butterflies"set -
 I embossed them with gold then sponged them with white acrylic paint.  
I also used a 2Crafty 12'' Doily Border, which I cut into 3 pieces, after
dabbing it with a gold paint dabber then sponging with white paint.

The base papers are from Prima Time Traveller & Seashore, as is the TIME title.  
I have also used Prima alphas, Prima flowers, resins, bling & doily lace.

And of course Prima Color Bloom Sprays in Precious Stone, 
Vintage Coal,  Antique Gold, Storm Cloud & Pearl White. 
 I have really got the hang of the sprays now & am LOVING them!!
