Frosted Designs - Doily + Sketch Challenge

Guess what!!! It's Friday!! Don't you love the sound of that?! And we all know what that means.... Frosted Designs has a new challenge for you! This week is a 2 parter!

1. You need to use doilies and 
2. You need to use the sketch that our very own Design Team Member Brenshevia designed!

 Here is the sketch....

And here is my layout....

Now, I know what you may be saying to yourself... is this really the sketch? And where did the doilies go?!  Well... both are there!! I promise! I think the best part of a sketch is that you can make it your own and I have to say, even though I deviated from the sketch a bit, this is one of my favorite layouts! 

 I layered some My Mind's Eye die cuts with some Basic Grey chipboard.  Under all that, is the doily I created. I started out by painting white paint on the background. I then laid two doilies on the background paper where I wanted them and used them as a mask. I misted them with some pink Shimmer Mist. They didn't show up quite the way I wanted so I decided to use a white paint pen to color the doily shape in and then outlined it with a black Copic pen. I LOVE the way they turned out! They were a lot of work, but totally worth it!  :)

 This film strip chipboard was perfect for the photos from last year's Hollywood Showcase. Lauren's acting school in Dallas puts it on each year. Lauren will not get to participate this year since we moved to Phoenix but she is going back to support all of her friends next weekend. She is soooo excited to see all of them!

And here is a close up of the doily in the top corner. I used a date sticker from Echo Park to help document the year!
