August Prima BAP..

Hi there everyone,
I will keep this short and sweet today as I am madly trying to complete all my scrappy tasks before we head off to Brisbane to have our baby!!! So exciting, can't believe its real, we have been a family of 4 for what feels like ages but I know before long being a family of 5 will feel normal :))) Only another week and a bit at home so lots to do. 
But I wanted to take some time out and have a go at Prima's August sketch.  It looked so cool and intriguing to me plus I am trying to use up some of my Prima stash (not sure if I ever will) before the new releases comes out!
Okay here is the sketch which I have turned...


Lots going on here in this layout.  I am just loving playing around at the moment, trying to be brave and try different techniques and mediums.  I have used the 6 x 6 Perforated Dot Flower mask just randomly in places on my background with modelling paste.  Then I used a combination of Twinkling H20's and Pan Pastels in and around my masked area. Such a gorgeous combination.
Love how the Pan Pastels adhered to the Prima canvas pieces.  I also outlined them with a water coloured pencil for more definition.  Lots of stamping too...something I am becoming a little more confident in doing...:)))

My little boys with their cute cousins...:))

Okay I better keep going, Thanks so much for visiting and for your beautiful comments.  I appreciate each one left :)
