13@rts August Challenge

Hello friends! I'm in today to share my take on the August challenge over at
13@rts. This month, we have a lovey moodboard brought to you by the wonderful Bellaidea.

Here's the moodboard:

And the challenge rules:
It's Bellaidea today with a new 13 arts challenge.
I wanted to give you lots of freedom and inspire / challenge you at the same time so the idea is to create a journaling  page /LO /canvas /this time no cards and tags/ in the  style from any of 4 photos and with a  color combo you like the most.
I also would like you to use mists.

Being a very pastel person (at times), I naturally went for the shabby chic room with its soft creams and pinks and Baroque panel dividers. I started with from the "Fly Away" collection as my background, which I primed with 13@rts acrylic primer. I also did some stencilling with a doily mask using Ayeeda acrylic modelling paste.

Some close-ups:

Lots of fussy cutting here from the "All is Love" collection papers from 13@rts. My title is actually two halves of a doily with some sentiments on it and I juxtaposed them on opposite sides of the photo to try to create a visual line.

Some trim, tulle roses for a softer effect layered on top of strips of papers which I created a layered photo mat with using papers from the "All is Love" collection. And also my favourite paint splatters as well using various 13@rts mists. The roses I coloured with Ayeeda Matte Paint in Raspberry using a bleeding technique which I will soon do a short tutorial on. I also used a resin frame to imitate the Baroque panels in the photo. 

That's all I have for now. Do drop by the 13@rts blog for more inspiration from the rest of the DT. Hope you will find the time to play along with us this month to win some fabulous prizes!
