Your Favourite Hat

Finished this yesterday for another forum challenge over at Swirlydoos. Basically the challenge is to ink, spritz, colour and dye everything. Or rather, to change the original colour of the items that we use in the layout.

Here's my take:

I spritzed the die cut paper with Maya Road Mist (Pink) and Glimmer Mists (Key Lime Pie and Timeless Lilac) and did the masking thing using Tim Holtz masks. Then I added those Maya Road clock rub ons. Cut out some velvet paper (did I tell you how much I LOVE that velvet paper? Well, I DO!!!) and distress the edges a little.

The flowers are all originally white. I spritzed more Glimmer Mist and Maya Road mist.

Inked 'HAT' with Tim Holtz distress ink (Blak Soot) and also a little on the mesh which was originally white too. But the black on the mesh turned out a little light so I spritzed tons of Glimmer Mist in Graphite to get a darker colour.

Swirly blings are my absolute favourite!! If I have tons of them. I would put swirly blings on ALL my layouts.. :D. These ones were a combination of crystals and grey and very light pink pearls. I decided to use alcohol ink (Terra Cotta) on the pink ones. It was a little tricky applying the ink as I had already laid down the blings. But I managed using the end of a pin.

Spritzed more of the green Glimmer mist on white cardstock and punched out the alphas.

Photo in the layout is of Nadiah in her absolute favourite hat. She goes everywhere in them except to school. Only because it's not allowed though or believe you me, she would don the hat in school too. When she goes to bed every night, the hat would be at the end of the bed. It's a precious hat. I wouldn't want to imagine what it would be like if we somehow manage to loose it. Uh-ah... hopefully that's not going to happen....
