a present P

Hi friends! I know I've been super slow in updating my blog lately...or actually, I've been slow for a long time. It's not that I don't do things anymore, it's just that I often find myself doing things that aren't really scrapbooking related. I guess you've seen that here too, right? It's sugar scrubs and fabric book shelves and felted soaps and clay no, I haven't showed that one here - yet. :)
Last night started out sooo good, with plans for making paper cups into the cutest lanterns for a light chain.....whooa! I dunno what happened, but I found myself painting my nails instead. Not just painted either, but ombre painting.... That takes like forever. I learned that yesterday. Haven't decided if I like it yet. :P

Now, enough about me. Onto this fun project instead, a custom made P from this summer. The title "a present P" is a play with words btw, the swedish word for gift is present.

I was asked to follow the color scheme from Kim as you are, so I did. I believe this one turned out a bit darker though. At first I thought I was in way over my head with the blurry design paper I picked. But then, after adding layers and layers of even more pattern, it worked out quite well.

Angel with glitter wings and red heart.

Here's a bit of the multi layered background, and some more stuff on top. I first used a wire netting stencil with white acrylics and then stamped and embossed swirls. The polka dot organza ribbon had a rich red tone that I like, so that color is repeated in the butterflies.

Instead of a name, half of a "smile" stamp, with the dot replaced with a glittery heart.

Doggie. :)

L.O.V.E. this charm and how perfect it goes with the ribbon.

I wonder if I'll be making the lanterns tonight? ;)
