 It's reveal time again at More Than Words! It was a fun challenge this month and I think you'll love playing along. This is my layout.
This is the challenge
Awesome isn't it just imagine and get messy!
I choose this photo of my DGD Emily playing fairy in the forest. That's one thing I love about children is their unfettered imaginations!! They are inhibited by any of the adult issues and insecurities that come with age they are just free to let their imaginations run wild. 
I used a stencil and molding paste on this. Rather than try to meticulously add color I just dumped different colors of embossing powder on the wet paste then dried it allowing it to bubble. My stamped butterflies were done once with embossing powder and the second time I went off a bit with black archival ink to give it a smudged look. Everything is sort of haphazardly placed on the page.
I did a great deal of fussy cutting and then ran a string of pearls throughout the cluster. I loved these gorgeous papers from Bo Bunny's Soiree collection.
I choose this particular chipboard font from Thickers because of the adorable pink tint in it but mostly because it reminded me of how children print.
I really enjoyed doing this challenge and hope you do to!!
