Miss Gali

Well hallelujah!! I finally captured a nice photograph of Miss Gali, Lucy's MaMa!!  YAY!
Her official name is Galadrial, which we never use because she likes Miss Gali best : )
She is so shy & timid.  She and Lucy are best friends >^..^<

The Blue Fern Studios page named "Fascination" is really gorgeous with its pale blue background.
It coordinates fabulously with Miss Gali's eyes. 
I am really going to work hard to get more photos of her because she is such an outstanding beauty!

I'm entering my layout in the Blue Fern Studios June 2016 Sketch Challenge.
The design began by stenciling a similar style flourish that is printed on the paper.
I colored white Liquitex Professional Flexible Modeling Paste with
Lindy's Stamp Gang mica powder "A Bit o' Bubbly" found in the Magicals Set "Drink Me Silly".
I always save the scraps, no matter how small, of my Blue Fern papers....just in case.  Plus the fact I can't stand the thought of throwing them away! They really come in handy to use behind the photo on your layout or for making tags and flags.  The papers I used are listed at the end of this post.  
The doily made the perfect area for a flower, butterfly and pretty prills.
All of the butterflies were punched using scrap papers as well.  I handmade the antennae and added Want2Scrap tiny rhinestones in Mother of Pearl color. 
Pretty light blue bling in the stenciled areas & prills near flowers & the title added some interest & texture.
For some drama, I chose to add touches of black paper and also BFS oh so yummy gorgeous Imagine Ink embossing powder color Celestial.  Originally I used Ranger Glossy Accents to coat a custom cut title chipboard, leaving it natural color.  It just didn't thrill me, so Celestial color was heat embossed and WOW what a stunning statement it makes now! This is a technique I will use again because I love the 'rounded' look better than just flat.
This stunning black has glittery color specs of red, green, yellow and blue.  WOWZERS!

 The gorgeous BFS chippie "Whimsy Flourishes" was also heat embossed in Celestial color.  It looks doubly fantastic with the golden & pale yellow, pale blue and blush pink flowers!

Thanks so much for visiting and have a great week!  Lisa : )
