Hope you are enjoying all the new releases and beautiful project by our wonderful Design Team.  When I saw those pretty ballet shoes, I knew I had to have that set.  My daughter started taking dance when she was 4 (she's know 37)!  

To start my layout I used Martha Stewart scalloped punch and punched around the page.  I did not want a perfect punch, instead I wanted a mess punch.  The edges were inked with brown ink. I prepped my page with gesso before starting my page and let it dry.   Using a pink gelato randomly on the page for some soft color.   Next I laid my floral stencil on top and covered with embossing paste.  Removed the stencil and covered with Sparkling Snow glitter. A second stencil was placed down and stenciled using blue ink with a sponge dauber.

My photo was layered with dollies, tag, and different DP.  

For those pretty slippers, I stamped them with black ink and colored with copic markers.  Brushable Glue was placed on the slippers and Petal Soft flocking was applied.  For the ribbons Bubblegum glitter was added using a glue pen.  They were then fussy cut out and placed on the page with pop dots.

Here you can see a closer look at the background.  The orchid was die cut using a Spellbinders die.  A small amount of colors was added to the flower using copic markers.  Using brushable glue and a small paint brush Sparkling Snow glitter was added to the edges of the orchid. The letters are from Tim Holtz. 

The sentiment was stamped with black ink.  Small rhinestones were randomly placed on the page, as well as dots White Opal Liquid Pearls. 

The butterfly is a stamp from My Rose Garden.  The background paper was created using gelatos and water.  Once the paper had dried I stamp the butterfly and fussy cut out.  Sparkling Snow glitter was added to the edge of the wings.

Hope you have enjoyed my layout, I really had fun putting it together.  Here is a little sneak peek of a layout to come using only the sentiment of the Ballet Stamp Set.  I hope you will come back by to see the entire layout!!

We love reading your comments and hope that we have inspired you as well.  If you can not leave a comment for some reason, please email with your comment and the name of the blog or the Designer you are commenting about.
