"Be Strong" Layout for the May Prima Product Picks Challenge

I just loved the color palette for Prima's PPP this month, and decided to try it out. Just take a look at these beautiful colors!

I chose to use the Garden Fable collection for most of the layout. While these colors are a lovely combination, my biggest challenge was NOT adding green! :) For some reason I kept wanting to add some green papers and greenery to the floral clusters, but I found some blue and pink leaves from the Royal Menagerie collection that worked out well.  I used up a lot of my flowers from open packages of different collections. Some of the other flowers are from Royal Menagerie, as well as lace flowers from the Cigar Box Secrets collection, some small yellow flowers from the Epiphany collection and the Audrey flower collection, and of course from the Garden Fable collection to get a good variety and capture the colors from the palette!

Here's what I came up with: 

I started out using the Prima white crackle paste on a large distressed circle stencil. Once dry, I added some water and soft teal color bloom spray with a brush over the crackle image. 

The pink foils that go along with the adhesive rub ons were perfect for this color palette, so I added some of the rub ons, including this flower with a little cluster and beautiful resin cherub. The teal leaves are Prima metals that took apart.

 For the title, I wanted to use the adhesive rub ons with the foil, but I didn't want to use the pink again, and I thought the teal would be too bright, so I used both! I used the pink foil on the adhesive rub on first, but I didn't press it down over the entire rub on. Then, I used the teal foil and pressed over the entire rub on to get this faded look which I love!

Thanks for checking out my layout! I hope you get a chance to play along in the Prima challenges this month!
