You color my world Happy!

Hi everyone!
Beginning of the month brings so many cool challenges, it always makes me happy!
The new one at Scrap Around the World I felt particularly in looove, just one look at the mood board and sketch and you will know why!
Also Mou Saha has a new challenge over at Design Memory Craft, this time it's easy peasy, just show what you an art project that you are working on, so here it is!
 
As you can tell this is one of my FAVE photos and I just love the impact it has on pure color





So here's my take on both the sketch and the challenge



some closies

I did several watercolor hearts around my drips
and took inspiration from the bling on the photo to add a touch of it to every layer
There were different fonts on the inspiration board so I handwrote my title and finished it with a whitewashed Prima wooden word

now are you ready for the behind the scenes walk through?
The sketch had two semi circles, I used a sharpie over my mask to guide when I started applying my first layer

I kept one of the lines intact since I fell in love with the scalloped heart {part of the mood board}
and I knew it would help me when I did the title.

kinda hard to distinguish between the shades of white, but you can see the sketch's shape in there

my DD helped me pick the perfect palette as she is obsessed with the order of the rainbow...
check out this awesome pinterest challenge

oh how I loved these perfect drips, had a lot of fun doing this!
I hope you find inspiration in the mood board and work it to make it your own,
so happy you came by!
