A Room With A View - Creative Embellishments August Challenge

Hi everyone! It's the first of the month and the means a new challenge over on the Creative Embellishments blog.

I created this canvas using a couple of paper collections by Blue Fern Studios. I started by applying some modeling paste using a stone stencil to the background of the canvas.  Once dried I applied several shades of purple paint and mist along with some yellow paint. Lots of paper layering along with Creative Embellishments chipboard, lace, flowers and prills.

I love the mood board for the August Challenge.  I was inspired by the colors, stone front building, flowers and the arched doorway.  The twist to the challenge this month is to add flowers.

At the base of my canvas I used Flourish 26 which I embossed with a mixture of white, lilac and iris embossing powders.  

To the left and right of the canvas I used Flourish 31, also embossed with white, lilac and iris embossing powders and cut in half.  To frame the image of the Eiffel Tower I used Open Arched Windows, embossed white. Tucked beneath the flowers I used  Leaves Set 1, embossed with avocado embossing powder and dabbed with white gold wax.

This is the top of  Flourish 26 and to the right is a piece from Flourish 31.

There are 2 chances to win.  Just add your project to the inlinkz tool on the Creative Embellishments blog for a chance to win a $50.00 gitft certificate to use at the Creative Embellishments store.  You can also share your projects on the Creative Embellishments Facebook Fan Page for another change to win a $25.00 gift certificate.

Hope you'll join us this month!
