First Communion Preparations

I am so excited to say this layout is being
published in a print magazine, my first ever!! 


I did this layout for the Once Upon a Sketch May Challenge to use their sketch and a number somewhere in the layout. Here is their gorgeous sketch:


I covered my bases pretty well using numbers with a "1" sticker, the title First Communion Preparations and with the date! My journaling is hidden on the back side, where I say: "This is my favorite photo of you on your Communion Day. You look beautiful and I can see a rare smile from you in the mirror's reflection". I am so proud of you my baby girl!"

I used my Scraps of Elegance kit Prima Fairy Rhyme paper and just love the May Arts ribbon and gorgeous die cut doilies from Gina's Designs that are in the kit. I used a stencil and modeling paste, lots of Prima flowers and a trinket.


Don't you just love the Molossi chipboard dress form? So big and beautiful! I applied gesso to it then cream colored acrylic paint. I stamped a script stamp on the dress form in Victorian Velvet and Broken China Distress Inks.



I'd also love to enter this in the Zeus and Zoe challenge and the Berry71Bleu challenge.

Thanks so much for taking the time to look!
