Moments are Everything and Something Sweet by Danielle Vertigan

Each month seems to just wizz by us, and here I am again popping in with another share.
I cant believe October is nearly over and the silly season is about to begin.
 The year is just going too fast.
Looking back on past photos is something I really enjoy,
so for this particular share I was inspired by a few moments captured.
These layout just came together with lots of Scrapmatts goodness so its time for a few
sneaks to kick off my first share Moments are Everything....
I Spritzed these flowers and then added a touch of shimmer.

The Lavender stalks I prepped with Gesso.
Once they where dry I ran them through the excess spray in my spritzing station.
It gave it a real Ombre look.
Using a 5x7 image I decided to cut my little man out.
It was the perfect image because the background had not much happening and wasn't in focus.
I love the circles and with this one I prepped using Black Gesso first.
I spritzed this one with some colour shimmer after.
This was the first time I used this stencil and I Loved it!!
The butterflies where prepped the same way I had the stems.

The pop of white with the blue is really effective.
Who said you cant use flowers on a boys layout.....
I used the following chipboard sets
ST9027 - A5
CB1026 Flowers 06
CB5152 Circles 02
I've cut this one up so I could work it into my page.
CB5165 Lavender 01
My next share is Lovely and Sweet.
The hearts stencil is one of my favourites in the range.
I use it alot and even use the hearts to sprinkle around the layout. It can be fiddly but is worth the effort.
The Stencil is the Perfect touch.
My favourite embellishment is the little hearts sprinkled around the page using the stencil.
I love the chain effect as it trickles down the page.
I used chalk ink direct onto the chipboard with no previous preparation.
I started with the pink then feathered the navy straight from the pad
It only needed a touch on the edges.
The Scrolls where a black chipboard.
I dabbed these roughly with a metallic pink ink. If you wanted a more dramatic colour
you could prep these with Gesso.
Its a great way to use coloured chipboard.

The bottom butterfly was a reverse colour combination of the top.

Lastly a close up of the stencilling.
You will see that I didn't keep the top lines straight starting them at different points.
Its a really fresh layout with a touch of navy that really finishes it off nicely.
I used the following Scrapmatts products
CB1067 Flourishes 10
CB1015 Butterflies 15
CB1077 Bird Cages 03
(I used 1 cage and 1 bird)
