elle's studio: the penelope collection & watercolors

the elle's studio penelope collection is just divine.  i love all of the soft pinks and the dark colors.
of course i just had to play around with it for this month's design team gallery.

i started by using watercolors on my background.  once that was dry, i lightly misted over the pink watercolors with some studio calico opaque white mist.  it's a subtle touch, but it softens the pink watercolors some.

then i pulled out my favorite pieces from the penelope collection, as well as the black and white strip paper.  i layered everything together and added a few strips of typed journaling.

love that sweet face.

here's a look at my finished layout and a few detail shots...
