Be sure to stop by Zva Creative's new blog to see who the lucky winner is there. Congrats winners!

I had so much fun creating this layout featuring soft pinks and greens.  I used self adhesive canvas from Claudine Helmuth as my background sheet.  Next, I placed a template (Harlequin, The Crafter's Workshop) on top o f my canvas and misted it with Cotton Candy Chalkboard Glimmer Mist.  Then I sprayed my page lightly with Key Lime Glimmer Mist. 

I placed cheesecloth diagonally across the left side of my page to create a soft, dreamy feel.  I used Claudine Helmuth's multi medium matte to adhere my cloth.  I sprayed lightly over the cloth with more Chalkboard mist. 

Next, it was time to layer my elements.  I cut a circle using Graphic 45's Little Darling collection, then placed it to the right of my photo.  I used ribbon from Hero Arts which I also sprayed with the Chalkboard mist.  I cut it into pieces and placed the pieces randomly around my page.

I used Martha Stewart Crafts tags which are in the shapes of circles to add a soft edge to my hard lines.  I inked the edges of the tags with Spun Sugar Distress Ink and misted the centers with Key Lime Glimmer Mist.  The "Love" chipboard title (Imaginarium Designs) was painted using Celery acrylic paint (Making Memories). 

Here is a close up of the soft layers I created using cheesecloth, paper layers and flowers.   I love using Zva's flowers and leaves to create a soft, beautiful effect. 

I embossed a solid piece of pink cardstock and distressed the edges.  I added delicate Zva pearls creating another beautiful layer to my page.   To finish my design, I added a sweet little clothesline from K & Company.  I have had this in my stash for almost a year so I figured it was time to use it! lol.
