Yolo

Hey there!
I just want to share my layout: Yolo (You only live once), it's a popular thing my teenagers say:)
I used a Keren Gerber sketch over at Scrap Our Stash, I love her sketches! Besides the sketch, the twist was to use gold. I also  am entering this layout for the March challenge at Creative Embellishments (a photo and a CE flourish) and Toni's Mix It Up challenge at Turtle Soup (use a mix of different 6x6 paper pads)
I used Fancy Pants Be Loved, Carta Bella Merry & Bright & a few other 6x6 papers I received in a RAK for this layout of Sierra all decked out for prom last year:

 
It's kind of hard to see in this picture, but I used a CE flourish, added gold embossing powder and then some Stickles to make it bling: 

 
Here you can see my layers. I cut some arrows and a heart from a My Minds Washi Tape and added them along with a chipboard piece from Be Loved. What do you think of that gold May Arts ribbon? I love it! I cut it jagged to give more texture.

 
Here you can see some of my background work. I used a Tim Holtz stencil and texture paste for the diamonds. I also used a TCW stencil and some distress ink for the coffee stains. The mini Polaroid frame I cut by hand. I added some washi tape, mists and a punched border:

 
Here you can see some mist drips (I spray mist and then spritz with water), some more of that yummy May Arts gold ribbon, washi tapes and a fun gold heart from Studio Calico:

 
and how about that gold YOLO word banner? That's from Studio Calico also:
 

 
Here is the sketch I used over at Scrap Our Stash:
 
Here is the picture for Creative Embellishments challenge. For inspiration, I used the green, gold, Polaroid frame and flourish.
 
 
Thanks for stopping by and sharing your day with me!
