Smiles are Free - Helena Johannson

This months inspiration board uses some of my fav colors - different kind of teal and turquoise - just amazing! So, I pulled out some of my fav Dusty Attic chipboard pieces and lots (lots!!) of flowers in different blue shades. This is what I came up with:
And here is the inspiration board:

I have used the Ornate Gate small (DA0189) and Ornate Corner #13 (DA1137), both painted white and then distressed a bit.
Now prepare yourself for lots of close-ups!

Lots of layering of papers and flowers!

"Smiles are free" - I adore my daughters smile!

For the background, I painted the Prima paper with some white gesso, then used a stencil with clear gesso and misted with different mists. I have also painted with perfect pearls around the flowers and chipboard.

Thank you for stopping by today!

  2. Helena your layout looks fabulous. Waw what a lot of fantastic details. Layers upon layers. I could study this for a long time and still finding lovely details. Love the way you arranged the embellishment, flowers, chipboards and of course the adorable pic of your pretty daughter.
