Everyone Loves Marilyn, Right?

Morning Crafters,

Hope you all had a good weekend and are ready for another week of inspiration from the LLC DT.  This week we have a photo inspiration from the gorgeous Louise and the photo is made up from items around Louise's house, OMG aren't they yummy, think I need to visit Louise's house for a vacation, I know I'd just love it.

Well my mojo is on a serious vacation and I do hope it returns soon.  As beautiful as Louise's picture is I have struggled to get myself into gear, I really don't know what is wrong with me but I hope it passes soon.  That being said this is what I have come up with. I have used a Stampsmith Stamp of Marilyn Monroe.  Everyone loves Marilyn don't they?  I have taken the turquoise, pink and white from the inspiration photo.  All edges were distressed with the blending tool and black soot distress ink.  You know I think everytime I'm in my craft room I use my blending tool, don't know what I'd do without it, lol.

Papers are from Maja Design Spring Basics 4th May and the turquoise is from Riddersholm called Camille.

Beautiful flowers, see thumbnails below and those gorgeous blackberries and apples.  I have also tied a bow using the lace petite and added one of the new shabby bark hearts to the centre.  The beaded heart was turned pink using my copic marker. All the flowers had a dusting of white gesso, well it's me so of course they would, lol. 

I have also used a Melissa Frances Clay Corner, love these.

Now look at this beauty.  This is one of the Vintage Findings Teardrop Pearl Centres, note to self..... must add more to my next order.  I thought the prima musical note paperclip was perfect for Marilyn and also the Ranger photostrip.

Here's another view of the flower arrangement.

Have a good week everyone.
