Take a look this entry from.......

Maria Delo - You Make me Smile

Hi Shazz,
Got inspired to do this challenge today, took inspiration from the gorgeous colours in the painting, I've used some floral diecuts for my bouquet as well...
For mine I've used a masking tape background coloured with water pencils, added torn book pages and then added a bit of gesso over the top for an arty feel....
My layout is titled "You make me smile"
Thanks for a great challenge its nice to get creative and do something different...
- Maria

Beautiful piece Maria :) Love how you incorporated the tape measure and cute bird cage, I'm impressed with the background using the water colors and gesso (Imight try that technique soon, if you don't mind) but most of all I love that photo.....and it makes me smile too! - cheers Shazza
