For today’s layout I worked differently than usual. I decided to use the September sketch, which is wonderful (please check it, we hope you participate!), and so I took VA Essentials collection to start with.

September Sketch

 I was completely sure to mix it with butter and green colors, because the photo (made by the talented Aleksandr Vinogradov @vinogradov_photo) is b/w and wanted it to be highlighted.

After glueing the background paper onto a 2mm cardboard, I added some rub ons in green and light blue. I painted some chipboard and corrugated cardboard and, while drying, I started to create layers with the green leaves and transfers. When other elements where completely dry, I added them to the composition. This means that I had to leave some space between layers in order to add those elements and this is something that I don’t do usually.

I got crazy adding layers of cut outs, leaves, and chipboard. I even glued down the photo. And when everything was on its place showing my take on the challenge, I discovered that I forgot to add flowers!! Of course, I’ve had selected them previously, but they were forgotten during the process. So that’s the reason why there are less flowers on this layout than in other ones I do. In fact, I didn’t feel like adding too many of them, as it seemed to me pretty good as it was.

When this was done, and to finish the project, I added some bubbles and baubles and art stones to make it complete.
