Discover The World - lo

Edit: this lo won one of the Top 4
When I saw the color combo for Feb challenge at Glitz, I knew right away that I'll use papers from 'Beautiful Dreamer' collection along with my youngest's photo. These gorgeous dp were perfect for his dreamy pose. And yes, I do make boyish layouts with flowers, pink and lace... LOL
Here's the color combo:
I also used the word inspiration from Bird Is The Word, which was "Discover".
I've made the flowers from scraps of cs in the matching colors. here's a close-up on the flowers:

I also used scraps of red dp (DCWV) to punch the small butterflies, WP alphas, a doily, lace and a gauze I dyed with acrylic paint. I'm really proud of myself that I managed to get the exact shade of blue/grey for the gauze, just like the shade of the dp. I think that it adds to the dreamy look of the lo.
I did a lot of hand stitching and distressing on this lo. here're some close-ups:

The leaves are hand cut from a print I downloaded from Lisa G. I spread glitter and diamond glaze on them. aren't they lovely? here're some close-ups:

and some other challenges:
stitching (plus a tip) - top tip tuesday my tip for TTT - if you do hand stitching - when you work with several layers, stitch each layer before you adhere it to the other piece of paper. it will make it easier to stitch and you can play with your paper around very easily till you're pleased with the design.
boys will be boys - creative craft
open challenge (must use a sketch) - sketches in thyme
distressing - dysu
3 different papers - simonsays
what's your style? - burlap & buttercups (my style: vintage/shabby chic; lots of layers; hand stitching; distressing; handmade flowers)
lots of layers - mawtt
Thank you for stopping by! your comments are much appreciated.

דף עם תמונה של צעיר הבנים מטיול שערכנו לאחרונה בכרמל. הוא תפס פוזה חולמנית משהו על רקע הנוף המדהים.
השתמשתי בדפים מדוגמים של Glitz מקולקציה שנקראת 'Beautiful Dreame', קולקציה עם דפים יפהפיים. הדפים הללו התאימו באופן מושלם גם לתמונה עצמה וגם לאתגר שילוב צבעים ש-Glitz העלו החודש.
יש הרבה דיסטרסינג ותפירה ידנית. השתמשתי גם במפית תחרה, סרט תחרה ותחבושת צבועה בצבע אקרילי. אני מאד גאה בעצמי שהצלחתי להגיע לגוון הכחלחל-אפרפר עם הצבעים האקריליים, ממש כמו הגוון שבדפים המדוגמים. את הפרחים הכנתי בעצמי והעלים הם חיתוך עדין של דגם שהורדתי מהאינטרנט.
דף של בן, אבל עם פרחים, תחרה וצבע ורוד. מאחר שבינתיים לא מושמעת מחאה מצד דור ההמשך, אני מרשה לעצמי מידי פעם...
תודה על תשומת הלב! אני תמיד שמחה לקרוא את התגובות שלכן, אז תשאירו סימן וזכר שביקרתן....

הדף הזה מדהים ורואים שהוא כל כך מושקע.
נהנת להסתכל על כל פרט ופרט - השכבות, הפרחים, העלים, התפרים, התחרות, הכותרת.
אהבתי גם את הרעיון של התחבושת הצבועה.
