Gymnastics layout with Alicia Barry

My daughter started gymnastics a little over a year ago, and she has already been moved up to the competition team. I'm excited about that of course, but I can see me spending a lot of money on the sport in the future. This Gymnastics Shape Set from Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts is perfect for a gymnastics themed layout, and there are still heaps of pieces left over for more layouts in the future.

I started by layering some pretty papers along with the Flourished Frame Lisa. I covered it in metallic glittery paint to mirror the glittered elements in my papers. 

For my title block, I used some metallic paint again, but without the glitter and in a neutral tone. This allowed me to maintain the silhouette style of the piece, while creating a cohesive effect with my background papers.  I used this same paint on my Leafy Swirl piece

The Layered Border Victoria, beneath my title is a combination of the two paints one used on the other piece, with the copper colour grounding the more vibrant layer above it.

I used foam dots on all the chipboard pieces to create a shadow effect.
