"Happy Days" by Anthea

Hello Everyone.  How are you today?
Today I am sharing with you a cute little LO of two of my favourite gals, my daughter and one of her cousins.  This whole LO was inspired obviously by the colours the girls are wearing, but by the "love" die cut.  I had coloured it for my "Monster Love" LO a few weeks back, but hadn't used it.  I decided it would suit these photos to a T.  (Waste not, want not!)

To start with I use some gesso through a D-lish stencil - this chevron one is perfect for drawing your attention to the photo(s) you are trying to highlight.  This one came from a D-lish JAP kit.  To colour it I simply applied some glimmer mist with a paint brush around the chevrons and with some splats here and there.  I mounted my photo with a piece of patterned paper and a D-lish doiley.
I then placed my rustic bloom in one corner with colour me cuts - these are probably meant for colouring but I really like the doodled look the give off when used raw.
I then used some ephemera from the "Slice of Summer" JAP kit to balance it out in the other corner.
I felt that the photos were still not popping, so I simply wrapped some wire in a rough circle and used that to highlight the photo of the girls that I wanted to stand out.   
To finish the LO off, I simply added my "Love" die cut, another colour me not and a co-ordinating D-lish flair.
Once again I am loving the cool colours in this LO.  I hope you enjoy.
See you soon.
