I had a productive weekend last week, and thoroughly enjoyed National Scrapbooking Day on May 1, which also happened to be Labour Day Holiday for us here in Singapore. Naturally, I spent the day scrapping. :) I finished one layout for Custom Crops which is yet to be published on their site, and the other is this.

I used the reverse of the Black Polka Dot Paper from MME's Meadowlark "Dusk" Collection, and glimmer misted it with a mix of Peach Delight and Burnt Red Glimmer Mists from Tattered Angels. The paper has a faint, distressed-looking floral pattern on it, which I thought looked lovely when glimmer misted.

I then also took the glimmer screen I used, which still had some mists on it, and dipped the white Lilliput and Fairytale Roses from Prima into the "leftover" mists, to add the same colours to just the edges of the flowers. I complemented this with a dash of Pink Bubblegum Glimmer Mist sprinkled on the flowers.

I used 3-D pop-up dots for the photo and journaling, to give dimension, while more Prima flowers, some laces, and Robin's Nest complete the layout.

This layout contains more white space than is my usual style, with emphasis on the photo itself, and I must say I'm quite pleased with it!
