Spring Style ~ The Paper Element ~

I did this for The Paper Element using their Toria collection. It's a soothing collection with pale pinks, yellows and grey. I used the Jewelled and Heiress patterned papers with the coordinating printed overlay. The photo is of my dd in her new year finery at Chinese New Year. Traditionally, Chinese New Year is a time to celebrate and welcome spring and the new year, and everyone's dressed in their finest new outfits. Hence the title "Spring Style".

I liked the chipboard element which was included in my kit. It has an oriental look to it which goes well with the theme of my layout. I painted it pink to match my layout, then glimmer-misted it with gold and finally sealed it with heat-embossed utee.
