(Daily ART Last DT Reveal
+ Scrap The Girls & Stick It Down Challenges)

Today is my 2nd feature April feature on the Daily ART blog and it's a very bittersweet post as it is my last one as a Daily ART designer. As they say, all good things must end, and this journey, however wonderful and inspiring it has been, must come to an end. I now want to give my spot on this fabulous team to another lucky artist. I wish to thank Daily ART for the opportunity and the chance to create with such a vast array of products and hopefully inspire you all to do the same.

And now, with no further ado, here is my last Daily ART DT project.

For my last project, I decided to go back to basics and create a layout about... myself. 

Like many people, I am very critical of myself and do not really like getting my picture taken. I find fault in almost every photo and wish that I was good at Photoshop. haha But something that being a scrapbooker has taught me is that photos are important in keeping a special moment or a special person 'alive', and however fussy I can be about myself, I deserve a little keepsaking too! 
I may not be perfect, but I am one of a kind and I can choose to be 'picture perfect'!

I am also playing along with the Stick It Down April Challenge with this beautiful sketch:

Let's take a closer look at my page:

On the background, I used the Fine Texture Paste with a stencil to create some textured design. I then added a bit of colour with a bit of Lemon Yellow and Peach Vintage Ink Sprays as well as Bronze Glimmer Ink Spray.

I used several products on my chipboard. The title was treated with a coat of Terracotta Vintage Paint and I added Deep Red Vintage Ink Spray and dabbed Apricot Acrylic Paint to create a marble effect.

The gorgeous Feather chipboards I used are from Dusty Attic. I started off by dabbing them with Terracotta Vintage Paint, then sprayed it with a combination of Bottle Green and Eucalyptus Vintage Ink Spray and Emerald and Pine Green Glossy Ink Spray. I added a bit of Peach Vintage Ink Spray and dabbed on some Emerald Patina. 

After I had all my embellishments stuck on the page, I decided to create a white wash effect by misting it with White Vintage Ink Spray, on the paper background, the chipboard, the flowers, everywhere. And there I am, in all my 44 years of glory!
