Quinceañera Daydream

Here it is... the start of a new art journal... even though this isn't the first page it is the first to be previewed! This one features a new release from Little Miss Muffet Stamps called Quinceañera Daydream and she has been merged with Rise and Shine from Make it Crafty.

The two images weren't designed for each other but it turns out they play nicely together! LOL For embellishments, I used more Make it Crafty chippies, pearls, wide twill tape and some ribbon flowers I had in my stash. I also distressed some edges and drew in some faux stitching.

With these two images together it looks like this princess had the night of her life! She still has her shoes so I'm assuming she has the prince's phone number for later. ;D

The ribbon flowers are actually rather thick and after gluing them onto the page I had to press them down with a dictionary and my Cuttlebug machine! They compressed to half their size with was more than I thought possible. I'll have to keep that dictionary handy!

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:


  1. Sigh. Gorgeous. More sighing. xxx
