The Sweetest Moments In Between

happy monday! i am here to share a layout i created for crate paper august creative weekly. the theme for this month's challenge is to use navy blue and sequins in your project. 
you can read more details on this challenge here.

i started my layout using this whimsical balloon chipboard from crate paper "the pier" collection. it's one of my favourite elements in this collection and i have been saving it to work on a layout for ethan's birthday.  Using the colours on the balloon as a starting point, i created a background using some watercolors and mist. this is my first attempt using watercolors on a layout and i am happy how it turned out.

next, i placed the embellishments base on the colours on the balloons and background. to further highlight the navy blue colour on the page, i hand stitched part of the title 'moments in between' in navy blue thread. this word art is from paislee press 'downtime' element pack which can be found here.

sequins can be found in 3 different ways here. some are used to create a sequin heart, some are used as confetti in a shaker window and others are glued directly on the cardstock. i love how sequins adds color and extra sparkle to the page.

here are some detailed pictures...


all products are from crate paper "the pier" collection except:

resin flower clips: crate paper "maggie holmes"
emamel dots: my mind's eye
buttons: october afternoon "midway"
wood veener: studio calico "snippets"
white card stock: american crafts
others: vellum, sequins

I hope you have enjoyed this challenge as much as i did. 
thanks for looking and have a great week ahead.
