Papers Issues ftg. Elle's Studio 'Serendipity" *blog hop*

A new theme is up this week at Paper Issues and it is all about "Serendipity" (anyone remember that movie?). Anyways, when I typed in "serendipity" into a google search (because I didn't know how to spell it correctly)  I see that part of the definition says "happy accident".  I LOVE happy accidents when it comes to scrapping, and I wish I could say I had one on this page, but there were no "accidents" this time around...everything was as planned!  Although I did use all Elle's Studio 'Serendipity' products:


I based my page off of a sketch at Skissedilla this week.  I loved the scattered photos on the page, and I had a lot from this little "shoot", so it was perfect! We have a GREAT climbing tree in our new backyard, and Charlotte felt like she was up so high (but she was about 3 feet off the ground) :).


On the background, I painted with a wash of gesso mixed with some light blue paint, then I splattered some yellow and green mists.

Over that, I added some white washi tape and some washi with gold little dots.  Then I took a stamp from Elle's Studio and stamped the "So lucky to have you" sentiment over and over again.


 A few fussy cut flowers and a great scattering of tags and she's done!  Not a lot of paper on this page, but still a lot of little details and colors!

So if you have a project that is "serendipitous", or perhaps one of these other themes, you should link it up to Paper Issues:

Chance
Fate
Destiny
Luck
Fortune
Kismet

OK, now hop on to these other fine ladies blogs and see some more Elle's projects!

Oh, and one more thing before I go....another page with the "Lucky You" kit from Paper Issues!  Last time I checked, there was only one kit left!

We have a lot of beautiful gardens at our new house and it is fun waiting to see what is popping up this spring.  I let the kiddos each pick a daffodil and they thought it was the best thing....:)



Sometimes if I am not sure where I am going with a page design, I just start fussy cutting and as I am cutting, I think about it more and more.  That is what I did here:  I just started cutting the flowers and the page took off from there!  I love how awesome the seam binding is for making bows!!
