hand painted freckles ~SOUS~

Happy Reveal Friday at SOUS! It is thundering and lightning as I type! I hope it isn't going to be too severe!  I had great fun working with this weeks sketch.  Of course it doesn't hurt when you have a great paper line and the cutest little subject to focus on!  This weeks layout features my neighbor girl Ryanne again. She and some friends got to go to the Zoo park in Winnipeg and got to chill with Rapunzel !  She painted their faces and they played "Ring around the Rosie" and all sorts of fun!  Every little girls dream!

 I used the Little Miss collection by Bo Bunny.  Gorgeous papers to work with and so much fun to look at.  I love how the bright colors make the b/w photos just pop right off the page!

This weeks sketch is brought to us by the amazing Nanne! She has crazy amazing talent!

A close up of Ryanne's cute painted face!  Lots and lots of layers on this layout!

You can't really see it properly in this photo, but I altered this Dusty Attic by first painting it white, then sprinkling Fairy Dust on it while wet.  I then used 3 different colors of Glimmer Mist and spritz them on the flourish.

Here you can see that I rippled the thin strip of paper and dry brushed the tips of the folds with white acrylic paint.

here is a close up of my hand made flower that I colorized with Glimmer Mist and puffy paint on the edges.

On the large pearls on the paper I used Viva Decor pearl pen is a translucent rose.  In real life it gives them a lot of shine and dimension .

I did a faux stitch line around the outer edge of the beige pattern paper and pop dotted the cute saying.
