Mon manège à moi... c'est toi

Hello everyone,

Sooooo, here is the last page I managed to make for Shimelle's cropping weekend. I enter it for challenge #11: Two Patterns. The goal was to mix two contrasting patterns. I chose a photo that had been sitting in my stash for quite a while because I knew which PP I wanted to use: the "Olivia" collection by BG.

So, here is my take:

And a few close-ups:

To make this embellishment, I folded in 4
four doilies, I put some ink. Then, I covered
a circle with silver paint and wanted to heat-set it.
I ABSOLUTELY didn't know this would happen
but I was REALLY happy with the results! Love
happy accidents!

Also made those embellies. I used Shimelle aka Glitter
Girl's tutorial to create them. The brads are all from the
Kraft Funday collection by MME.

Made the small tag with a Tim Holtz Alterationsdie.
For the big one, I stamped the back of a MME one
with a Fiskars stamp and Jenni Bowlin ink in Cough syrup.

Cut the small letters with my "Blackboard Blues Alphabet"
by Sizzix.

Those small beautiful letters are from the
Fabulous collection by Simple Stories


* The Olivia papers
* The paint behind the picture
* The doilies
* The tag


* The bold colours
* The washiiiii (under the red PP)
* The handmade embellies. I think they had a lot to this LO without costing much
* I used a border PP as a background, and I think it totally works

Thanks for looking and have a great week! :)
