Now onto the my latest little project. This past fall my mom and I went to Cavalia in Minneapolis, a fabulous cirque du soleil inspired equestrian show, and it was just amazing. The end of the first act culminated in the most amazing display of Roman riding I've seen in quite a long time.
Photography wasn't allowed during the performance, so I must thank google image search for this photo. The page was created using the March Scraps of Darkness kit, which was full of the wonderful Graphic 45 Olde Curiosity Shoppe papers and a beautiful sketch by suepup.
I did a lot of fussy cutting on both the butterflies and the bg paper. The diamond paper is actually the second side of the outer background paper, but because I loved both sides so much I had a hard time deciding how to use it. So I cut the bg paper to form a frame and gave it a slight mat using CS allowing me to flip over the center portion of the paper to complete the background. The whole made from fussy cutting out the roller skate is hidden behind all the layers.
Then I just added in a bunch of the various boarders and tags from the collection. The title was from the Graphic 45 Olde Curiosity Shoppe's alpha sticker sheet and it was mounted to cardstock. The peacock feather was a gift from Brooklyn Scrapper-thanks lady!
So I hope to see you all entering my contest and happy scrapping!
