Once Upon A....Sketch April Challenge

Hidey Ho everyone, time for another challenge. This one is for Once Upon A....Sketch  I haven't entered a challenge over there for a little while but I really loved this months theme and sketch.

Theme: Best day of your life.


I've been lucky enough to have a few "best days" in my life, but when I received my DD's photos from their trip to Iceland and she told me what an amazing time they were having, I decided I really wanted to scrap their experiences in such a faraway land, because these really are the best days of their lives. I've had to expand the sketch to accommodate the landscape photos. Here is my interpretation:

I've had this lovely Kaiser Craft pp (Prairie Lane collection) for quite a while as well as the little penguin cameo from Tattered Inspirations & it's finally nice to have photos to match. My job was made easier by the fact that the colours in the photos matched perfectly with the pp. But what I really loved the most is the snowflakes from Scrapmatts. I used the negative from them with texture paste to place some extra snowflakes on the background, then I painted the chippy snowflakes white & sprayed them with Glimmer Mist & added some rhinestones. I thought the feathers softened the page then I added some flowers from Bo Bunny & Manor House. Here are the closies:

The texture paste snowflakes came up a treat!

So thanks for stopping by and I hope you've had a creative day too :) xx
