Creative Embellishments: July Challenge

Welcome July, and another fabulous challenge from Creative Embellishments!
Here’s the thing about challenges…sometimes they let you create outside of your comfort zone and I LOVE that! Today is one such day, I normally don’t create much with the colour blue. However when I saw the challenge, I knew exactly what photo would compliment the colour palette perfectly.
Here is the challenge image:


Here is my layout that I created based on the July Challenge.


Creative Embellishments Chipboard Used:

“Dance to the Beat of Your Dreams”                                   Flourish Page Corner 5

Dance Collage

I chose to work with patterned papers from the Santorini Collection by Prima. I took the “Dance to the Beat of Your Dreams” sentiment and the Flourish Page Corner 5 and covered them in black paint. Then using a Heidi Swapp Shimmer Mister (Navy) I sprayed over top of both pieces. I love the shimmery dark look it gave both pieces. I added a few gems from my stash to the corners that were placed above and below the matted photo.
