July 123 challenge

 thanks  very much for this great challenge, i  usually, dont  work in pastels, but do have  papers for them 

 123 challenge 
colour       - pastels
word         - priceless
technique -       glitter

so  today, i thought i would incorporate   mixed media with  old pastels scrap papers & collectables

as  my background,  ive used the kaiser stencil, circles  &  liquid pearls,  pink,  blue, yellow and purple and mixed them with  cotton ball to give a lighter shade of  colour on all    

the  liquid pearls,  im not  that happy with, but  dont  take things back ,& it seems a shame then  not to use them, even though,  they  did not work the way i wanted the to so this was a good way to use more of  it . i do like the colours  & they look pretty on the shelf,  i now have some new liquid pearls  that are 3 d, and love them, 

so have mixed   the cotton  ball to all the colours &  painted it on  my white card stock. 
i have inked around the white cardstock with pink   ink from kaiser &  placed it on my Ballet  Kaiser card stock.
 then  out  of my scraps, i have found  kaiser lullaby papers and some   nursery papers (  that i bought at kmart years ago) 
The  butterflies and  swirls are from Kaiser 'chapter one  collectables,

i have  printed my priceless on my   cricut machine and  put glitter over it  and on one of the butterflies,
and popped up  the word  priceless, 

 one challenge done for this month,  

its amazing what one finds, when  i have a 6 month clean up ,  last month , i wanted  jigsaw puzzles, and knew i had them , today i found them , too late  for  challenge,    

well, best get back to sorting the room ,until next month, 

p..s  in the right hand corner of the layout,  you might  notice ,that  it looks a bit   blurry,  i  recently , bought a new camera  early in the year, but when i was on holidays,  the camera fell out of  my  pocket and onto the rocks below,   (   i should have listened to hubby, when he said  do you have to take the  camera everywhere ) , had i left it in the car, it would be good now, i did not tell him  that i sort of broke it and  can not  afford to get another  $400.00 camera .

  4. thanks ladies about the camera, i will try and not get the blurry part in the layouts or maybe take the picture at a further away so i can cut out that part, otherwise i will have to pull out of the game and i love doing this challenge, makes me think of 3 things, for my layouts,
