Believe: Scrap Around the World Mid-month Reveal

 It's mid-month reveal time at Scrap Around the World which means I'm up! And this is my layout for the December Mood Board designed by the talented Anna Komenda!
Meet adorable Vienna! Isn't she just the sweetest baby? Her photo was the perfect match for this month's Mood Board at Scrap Around the World
I am accustomed to reds, greens and golds for the holiday season in December so when I saw the blue it threw me for a bit! But only a bit. I decided to go out on a limb and try something different this month more mixed media!
I had the most gorgeous modeling cream I wanted to try and it happened to be blue! I used several masks on this layout and with one of them I used Viva's modeling cream in light blue. I also inked, stamped and misted the page as well. Just love the sheen of that blue!
The big flower in her hair called for a big flower on the page so I brought out my Sizzix and got down to it! Lost count of how many layers I used lol. Simply cut the cardstock petals, misted them, layered them then went over the edges of some of the petals with Liquid Applique then heat set it so it puffed up nicely. The blue flowers are simple roses I made and the rest are of course Prima. I also used a Tim Holtz rubon for more effect.
Dusty Attic chipboard title says it all. Again primed it with Gesso then misted away until I was happy with the color then added Distress Glitter.
Last close-up is of the small flower cluster. I used Authentique's Classique Elegant  papers for this layout. Again you can see a small snowflake rubon from Tim Holtz.
