LTSCB Challenge # 35 Running in Circles

Hello again! It's time for another challenge on the Love To Scrap Challenge Blog. This time the theme is "Running in Circles" You must use circles somewhere on your creation. Here are our sponsors:

Prize: 3 images to winner
Lacy Sunshine Stamps

Prize: 3 images to winner

I got to work with a fabulous image from Lacy Sunshine called Thea Boo Blowing Bubbles. I just love all the cute images at Lacy Sunshine. They are very imaginative and adorable. When I saw this one I knew it would be perfect. I have pics of my granddaughter blowing bubbles with her aunt. I was going to do 2 projects, but only had time for one. Since my last post promised a page in my new library pocket album, I did it. Here is what I came up with:

The front of the pocket:

The DP is My Mind's Eye. The sentiment was printed on the computer and cut with a circle die. I cut slits in it and ran an organza ribbon through it. The ribbon was colored with copic BG01. I cut around the image and then cut out each individual bubble and glued them on separately. I didn't like the white around them when I tried to fussy cut them together. The image and bubbles are colored with copics. I then layed Crystal 3D Lacquer on the bubbles for a shiny, bubbly look. I also used glitter pens from gellyroll and wink of stella on the image and edge of sentiment.

The insert:

Since the pics took up most of the room, I decide for a light look. I used a small circle stamp from Gelatins "Spin my Round" set. I interlocked them using VersaMark. I then applied mica powders. The blue is from Pearl Ex and the pink from Perfect Pearls. I also covered them with the 3D Lacquer. I found some Nemo Ribbon and decided to use it since it also has bubbles on it. I attached it with my Tiny Attacher from Tim Holtz. I then covered the staple with circles cut from vellum. Since I didn't have a scrap piece of pink, I used white and then colored it with RV02.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my project. The challenge runs until Aug. 17th. I do hope you'll join us. 

I am entering the following challenge: Anything goes using patterned paper Use "B" things I used Bubbles and Blue
