"Venice Carnival" February 2016 Challenge

February is the month of Carnival fill up with masks and confetti, lights and colors that create a unique and festive atmosphere.

The mood board combines brillance and luxury, ancient and modern with a little touch of Venice. 
I really loved to prepare this challenge for you, I hope it inspires you and we can meet with your entry this month!

The story behind my layout:
This summer we spent a great holiday in Alsace, France. During our stay we visited a charming village, Rosheim where were a special event that time. We could feel the festive atmosphere and felt like we were in Venice during the carnival season. Hundreds of people were walking down the small street and they were wearing breathtaking costumes. I took many great pictures.

I would like to show you one of these:

I used black cardstock as a background and I covered it with crackle medium and gold acrylic paint. Then I add more texture with structure paste and crackled style stencil. The next step was the random stamping with different patterns (dots, texts). 

Here are some close ups:

Thanks to the chipboard that I painted with blue mist I could highlight and framed the photo. I am a real fan of leftovers so I glued some stipes behind the photo. I embellished the layout with paper flowers, butterflies, metal elements, golden washi tape, lace cuts and text stickers.

The last step was giving a little shine to the layout so I put some glitter ono the flowers.
