Echo Park Once Upon a Time Princess

This month I was so excited to use Echo Park Once Upon a Time Princess paper line.  This line is absolutely beautiful and combines all the elements needed for any princess, there are florals and bright feminine colours as well as wonderful princess themed co-ordinating background papers.  There is also a matching gorgeous range called Once Upon a Time Prince for all those little prince photos you may have.

I decided to take on a rather large project this month.  Earlier this year I participated in a number of princess running races in Orlando and earned some gorgeous medals that needed to be displayed.  What better opportunity to use a princess themed paper range!

I started off with a large piece of white poster board and roughly placed my medals and running bibs where I wanted them.  I then went about getting rid of the huge white space with various spray inks in a berry tone (you can find some similar here).  After the inks had dried I realised I wanted to add a little bit of sparkle to the background so I used the Tim Holtz Scribbles Stencil with some glittery texture paste to go in between each medal.  It is quite hard to see the pattern now everything has been placed but it really does give a lovely shimmer behind the medals.

I then took several photos from the races and placed them around the medals using co-ordinating pieces of paper from the range.  I also used multiple stickers from the sticker elements sheets.  These sticker sheets are absolutely fabulous to compliment any paper range; they have so many elements and are the perfect finishing touches to layouts or cards.

Even though the finished piece is a little "busy", I really like how this bold project turned out.  The papers emphasise the fun of the races and match the colours of my medals and the bibs.

I hope you enjoyed this project, thanks for reading xxxx
