"Lovely" - Mixed Media Scrapbook Layout

Howdy folks! I just finished a new layout titled "Lovely".

Mixed Media Scrapbook Layout 13arts

This layout is my entry for this month's challenge at the 13@rts blog - the theme is "clocks" so a clock has to be somewhere on the project.  Here is the mood board for 13@rts:

For inspiration, I also used the 13@rts March Sketch found on the 13 arts ARTelier facebook page.

Also, I am submitting the layout to this month's Words and Paintery challenge - I was intrigued by the color scheme and decided to try it out.

Here are some close ups to see some of the details:

P.S.  I intended to make a video tutorial for this layout. I even continued recording through a gesso accident and a huge glitter spill. But when I spilled embossing powder right after I vacuumed up the glitter, I realized it was mostly a blooper reel and not much of a tutorial... I will be trying to do another video tutorial for my next project.

After so many mishaps, I decided I am making a second youtube playlist dedicated strictly to my bloopers on my videos or pictures of my spills and messes. Wouldn't that be fun? One of my favorite parts of mixed media is making a mess. :-) Why not capture those moments too?

Anyhow, thanks for checking out my "Lovely" layout (haha) today.  Have a great day everyone!
