The cutest mouse

I've joined in over at Once Upon A Sketch this month following a beautiful challenge. I find OUAS very challenging but lots of fun to do.

At a recent expo I picked up a few supplies, one being Gelatos! I've never used them before so I dipped in and let loose :)

This month's challenge was set by the amazing Nadia....

And this is what I came up with...

I used a Tim Holtz stencil that I also picked up at the paper expo and lots and lots of flowers from D-Lish Scraps. In amongst the flowers you'll find a ScrapMatts 'chippy' that I painted to coordinate. I always have trouble with coloured wire but I was happy to have finally included it in one of my layouts.

One of my favourite ways to journal is to print on cardstock and cut up into strips. I loved the fact that I incorporated Heidi Swapp script into my title.

This layout is certainly something outside of my confort zone but I'm happy with how it turned out. And nothing is complete without sequins, right? :)
