N is for Netting! Scrapology August Challenge

This month at Scrapology we have the pleasure of lifting a wonderful page by Toni AKA 2 Dogs, you can visit her inspirational blog here

 Here is my DT offering for this month.
I chose to scrap this photo of Lauren, taken by a friend whilst she was on holiday in Italy with her Year 10 schoolfriends. It was on a day trip into Verona, where they saw several street entertainers amongst other things. She had a super holiday( her first time abroad!!) and I really must get round to scrapping more photos of it for her.

 I used a sheet of MME Madison Avenue "Happily ever after" and added a doily, which I misted with 2 colours of Cosmic Shimmers. I also die cut some hinges which I painted gold and heat embossed with clear UTEE, then added butterflies and blossoms( I saw this sort of idea some time ago online but sadly cannot remember where to be able to credit them :( ). I frilled up a long strip of netting and placed behind the photo and also made a flower using the tulle netting too.

I also created 2 flowers using pink organza circles that I singed the edges of with a tealight and popped a gem in the centre. The title was die cut, I popped on a couple of organza bows and then I liberally splashed about some pink Stickles in various places to finish the page off.

Here is Toni's original lovely layout that inspired us...........

And here is the sketch we worked from.

  Jill at Cardinal Colours has come up with another fabulous prize this month.
A4 pieces of textured netting, 2 each of yellow, orange, pink and purple and Liquid Pearls in Rouge. Royal Blue, Cantaloupe, Majestic Purple and Baby Blue. ( Thank you so much for your generosity once again Jill xxx)

Would love to see you enter the challenge by creating a layout using the sketch and some netting please. 

Prize available to UK residents only.
