More Than Words Challenge February 2016!

Hi all,

A brand new layout to share today, my entry for the February 'More Than Words' challenge.
This month's word is 'Wonderful' and the creative challenge is 'sparkle'. You can play along here 

Here's my layout:

I love flamingos. Any excuse to include them in a layout. This picture was taken at Chester Zoo.
I'm loving bright colours lately so I wanted to create a tropical theme to match the hot pink of the feathers.
I have lots of bits of 'sparkle' on here - glass beads, embossing powder, glitter pens, glitter Thickers, and some die cut glittery feathers (my favourite part of the layout!)

The other day I went to Hobbycraft and bought some mixed media supplies - Gelatos, modelling paste, embossing powder and a heat gun. I (loosely) followed a Finnabair tutorial, adapting it to my layout and I'm quite pleased with the result - not the neatest layout ever but I had so much fun making it!

....also, flamingo washi tape and it's the best thing ever....

Thanks for stopping by!
