A 'Cherish-ed ' Layout

Hi Friends! Hope you all are doing fine! I created a layout a few days back but kept on added things to it every day. Finally I am here to share to it with you all. This is my second ever try on a layout so I really hope you all like it..

Here are the pictures...

THE LAYOUT. Added lots of torn papers and laces and doily..the background paper in back is painted one .. YES!! This layout is a PAINTER'S MESS!!

Few close ups..

added buttons with the glitter balls and silicon balls from my handbag ;P
Have a look at the peeping doily on the torn edge..
The ruined paint brushes!! the leaves are actually the daisy flower .
I tore its petals to make leaves ..the velvet fabric flower and the
 red roses are handmade .

added crackle paint to the title

This Layout has been inspired by the spring colours. Limes and greens and red....the paper in black you see on the backside has also been painted..
the paintbrush inspired me to go ahead with using lots of paints..I used acrylic and watercolour paints. The paintbrushes got spoiled so I used them as embellies here! I will definitely remember to clean them now ...:P

 All the credit for this goes a very talented scrap booker Keren Tamir from Expressing from  my heart and soul. She is the one who inspired me and guided me.. Thanks a ton Keren for your inspiration!

Submitting it to the following challenges:

Doily card and some Clothespin craft

Hi friends!
I have a cute and sweet wedding card to share with you all today. its made of a single white doily folded in centre are the pictures..


 Here I have used a doily and weaved an organza trim from my old dress through the holes. The mulberry roses are recycled form an old project. the clothespin is from a RAK sent to me by sweet bloggy friend Hussena! (Hope you remember!! It was longgg back:) ) Thank you dear. I never knew how and where to use it until I saw the challenge at Lessology this month. I had just this one pin and I couldn't think of anything better than this! Isn't this just altering the single pin to the best possible way! I love this cute wedding card:). The papers are from the packaging of a cosmetic and the frame you see is from a wedding card with Lord Ganesha in centre. I painted it with white Gesso.

I am entering it into the following challenges-
Lessology-#34- Laundry day- Up-cycled stuff- The papers used are from cosmetic packaging. The frame is from a wedding card.The organza is from an old dress. The sentiment is handwritten.
Hope you like it.
Please leave me your views:)
