Embellish it week 5 - Roll it.

Yay so happy I've made it through to the next round...Anyways this weeks challenge was set by Melinda Spinks... Melinda's challenge is to create a layout using the following criteria:
Layout to be any shape but square
Monochromatic Colour Scheme (With a hint of one other colour only!)
Paper Rolling or Quilling must be used on your layout!
Stamping to be used on your layout and be a prominant feature (not just a little stamp in the corner).
An embellishment to be made using acetate/transparency (you can also include any of the above criteria on your embellishment).
So with the criteria set..this is the layout I came up with...
Normally I would never do quilling on a layout..simply because I'm far too impatient, but now that I've tried it and seen the end result, I'm happy...So I think I will start using this technique more often :D The quilling on this layout is actually mounted on top of a stamped flourish image on acetate.

Lastly on the last image...I stamped over the cardstock I ahered to chipboard letters and also around the photo itself I handrew the flowers and coloured them in. I also never do odd shaped layouts by themselves so I'm thinking I may mount this layout to black cardstock now to go in the album.

Okie Doke thats all I have to show today...I have tons of ATC's to catch up on :( and soon I'll be taking a break from scrappin and atc's for a whole month as my little girl is turning 1 and I'm planning a high tea party for her...Ive been searching for months now for lots of different knick knacks for her party..without much luck :( I'm searching for vintage/shabby chic items, I thought the op shops might stock alot of this..but I was wrong :( If anyone knows anyone that is giving it away please let me know or email me..I just want to borrow things for the day. Also the night before her party I am planning a hens night too..LOL I think my stress levels will be hitting the roof that week. Wish me luck.
TFL...much love Belynda-Lee AKA lyn xx
