Lets checkout what Ujjwal has in store for us

Hello, It is good to be celebrating Lulupu’s third birthday here on the blog. I was quite excited when Karuna invited me over for the guest post because, one, of course it’s a birthday party and who says no to a party and, two, we have a fabulous mood board to take inspiration from. I love mood boards!!

So I picked up some lovely colors from the mood board and took this opportunity to create a layout with one of my daughter’s pictures.

I took the following from the mood board
Techniques: Distress look (I distressed the edges of the base paper), Layering
Materials: Strings
Embellishments: Flowers
Shapes: Rectangle
Colors: pink, green, blue

And I have a whole lot of 3 going on, 3 pieces of doily, 3 flowers, 3 strings

I started of by distressing the edges of the pattern paper and adhering it to a cardstock. Then I layered the photo on a distress piece of cardstock and adhered in place using foam adhesive. Then I pulled together the embellishments and played around a bit till I was satisfied with the arrangement and adhered everything in place. I die-cut some flowers using Heartfelt Creations Vintage Floret Die and lightly inked them with distress ink (Spun Sugar). I kept it quite simple as that is how I like it.

I hope you like it and play along the wonderful challenge this month!

Wow, what a pretty project Ujjwal. I loved it for being simple yet striking!! 
I hope you all loved the layout and yes, do not forget to take part in the celebrations !! Come join us in the fun!!
