Viva Forever

Hi everyone Vicky here with some more inspiration. Hope you have all had a lovely relaxing weekend, we certainly have.
Ok so the theme for this week for us DT girls is Spice Girls...........yep a strange one I know. Basically we have to create something that has something to do with Spice Girls. I went with a song they did, its called Viva Forever & I took a few words from that song & made a canvas for my daughter's bedroom..........which is shabby chic, or it will be soon when its done lol.
The pics are not great it was hard to take photo's.
Now I had no plan, no layout........tbh I had nothing in mind when I did this except the words, shabby chic, distressing & that it was for my daughter. I basically hoped it would turn out alright lol.

The large letters are form my stash & I covered them with SnowTex mixed with a few drops of Tattered Rose distress ink, it was like pink frosting lol. Once it was dry I then added bits of Gesso.
For those who dont know the song the words are taken from the chorus............
Viva forever, I'll be waiting, 
Everlasting like the sun, 
Live forever, for the moment
Ever searching for the one. 
My daughter is the strongest lady I know, she has been through so much in her 22 years & yet still is able to smile like this in the picture below. She is amazing, this is a reminder to live for the moment..............maybe more of a reminder to us.

Isn't she gorgeous. I've added a strip from a Maja Design paper saying 'I Love You'. I printed another photo of Natalie smalled & glued it to a Glass Pebble & then attached that to a clip slide from my stash to attach to the strip. Underneath is 'Cheese Cloth' & 2 Doilies.

This is one of the gorgeous Prima Resin Angels, I love these...........I think they are totally perfect for Natalie ;0) Of course I've added Gesso here, there & EVERYWHERE lol, you can also see more of the snowtex ;0)

I stamped 'Made With Love' using the new Stempelglede 'Just A Note' stamp set. I also added a Prima Junkyard Zipper, this one says 'Precious' on.

I've used 2 Maja papers from the Sofiero collection & I added Gesso all over the papers to soften them. Of course added lots of flowers & other foofy bits ;0)

All links to items used are below.
Thank you so much for stopping by, hope I've inspired you just a little.
Squishy hugs Vicky xxxxxxxxxxxx
