Nuneka here with a new layout today. I love fantasy theme projects and these beautiful papers from Serendipitous 12×12 mini collection inspired me to create a magical garden for this moonchild.

I selected the background paper and two more to make the moon; from those two I fussy cut the floral elements to be used in the composition. I cut two semicircles and placed them more or less in the middle of the page, being able to see how much space I had around to work in the background. I added interest with texture paste and stencil, and a touch of color in the same shades present in the papers. Then I used Ticket Express and In Between stamp sets to add a funny touch.

I embellished in the moon background with Gabi’s Sunshine stamp set and embossing powders. Then I started working in the composition, I used a chipboard, the fussy cut elements from the paper collection and lots of flowers to create a beautiful garden: yellow Stargazers, and blue and pink Wildflowers.

I added some Layered Embellishments from the Eucaliptus Dream set, which are great to add dimension, as well as some of the 3D bubbles that come in the set. And I placed some of the laser cut elements from the extra page of the paper collection, which can be layered too to get a 3D look. Finally I glued some crystal stars and glitter in the moon for a magical touch.
