Hoping & Wishing

The page I have to share with you today is my entry for the Scraps of Darkness August Round Robin. I am week three and had to lift Cheryl's amazing layout which can be found here. My page is titled 'Hoping & Wishing' and I used the fabulous August Envy Kit from Scraps of Darkness.
So I have been wanting to do the rolled paper in the shape of a circle for ages now and this was a great opportunity. I really like how it came out. Double sided patterned paper is a MUST for this effect. I gesso'd the edges, then went over them with some magical micas, mists, and ink.
The twist this month was to have a handmade flower on the page. This is the flower I made for my 'Fan Flowers with a Twist' tutorial and I haven't gotten around to putting on a page yet. Good thing too because I was very last minute in completing this page and while making flowers are fun they are very time consuming.
I am just in love with the effect I got on my pink paislee mistable embellishment. I think it's my favorite thing about the page! I just randomly brushed some magical micas and then dotted it with some Tattered Angels.

This picture was taken of me on my boyfriend's and I vacation. We were driving down to the keys. I think it speaks to how I have been feeling lately. I have definitely done a lot of hoping and wishing in recent times. Thanks for looking!
