Happy birthday Aurora

The Memory Nest Make It Monday No.30 sketch was the inspiration for this layout.  The added twist was to use stamping on the background. 
This is another mixed media background that I completed recently, I was not really impressed with my efforts - it used distress inks, paper, acrylic paint, masking with spray mists and yes - it had some stamping on it!!!!  Excellent just right for this layout - so glad I did not toss this one!!!
Aurora is the daughter of friends and she recently turned one and I was invited to her birthday celebration at a riverside park.   Now, we of course are not wearing co-ordinating clothing, so I added some cotton lace to matting to tie the two main colours in.  I am reminded of many years ago when cottage craft was all the go (I even taught a class in this) and we made padded photo frames.  I have hand drawn the hearts and some doodling around the edges.   Some Washi Tape and brads sprinkled around for extra effect. Here is a close up of the flourish and some of my embellishments. So pretty and girly.
Why not head over to The Memory Nest and have a look at their layout sketches.  Thank you for looking, Margaret :)
