Live Laugh Love

I am Livin, Laughin and Lovin this Prima range!!

(yes I deliberately left out the "g" so I sound like I'm from the hood!!)

I have been wanting to do a page using the curling technique for ages and this one seemed a perfect way to show the other side of the paper off and to create a busy (but not too busy) frame around the photo.

I have to say it's a difficult paper design to work with as it's hard to know where to add any embellishments, so I just went with what was already there and tried to 3D it up a bit.

I spritzed the plain Prima flowers to get a colour match and built them up then added a layer of the Jo Sonja Opal Dust again.

I don't really like the stripes in the background so I have tried to draw the attention away from them and to try to emphasise the circle design of the page.

Love and laughter

I just love the oaoer curling technique. I've not seen it before. The opal dust certainly adds glamour to the flowers. Lovely page Ruth. x
