Having a week off work over Easter has been wonderful - I have been able to complete some layouts and enter some challenges.

I completed this layout for the month challenge at black with 2: -  using the word Inspiration.  I turned the sketch upside down.

The frame is a Blue Fern chipboard - Royal Bird frame.  I started with gesso and then used embossing powder - Stampedous and Zing.  Over this I applied Dimensional Magic and before it was dry, sprinkled Tim Holtz clear rock candy glitter over the entire frame.

The flowers are from i am roses.  I colored them using Glimmer Mist - pop rocks and Dylusions Ink - cut grass.

I embossed the edges of the paper using a stamp - Prima Mixed Media and embossing powder.  I did the same with the lines for the journalling and the heart stamp.  Finally added a bit of bling, ribbon and chipboard hearts.

Here are some close ups:

Here is a the sketch:
