Southern Girls Challenge - Circular embellies

Hi there and welcome!  So today is my first post as a new Design team member over at the Southern Girls Challenge - I'm very excited to be on the team.

Ok, so the theme of this challenge is about circular embellishments....sequins, buttons, flair etc if you can think of it then it applies.  I couldn't help myself so I went with some spotted paper's circular so it counts right lol

Aren't kids just adorable when they are asleep!  This photo was taken after a rather restless night of sharing an inflatable bed with my daughter...the girl is a wriggler!

I bought the paper collection (Prima Rose Quartz) back in July 20107 - I just loved it and it's romantic/dreamy feel.  I had no plans or any ideas what I was going to do with it until this challenge came about, and I remembered about the page with the circles...and so it all began.
Anyway I liked the way that the circles kinda looked like thought bubbles like you see in cartoons lol.  As my photo is darkish I wanted to highlight it with built up layers and just a sneak of colour.

I ended up loving how this arrangement looks, but I can tell you it wasn't all sugar and spice while I was working on it.  I thought I had decided on my final composition, I'd played with it, walked away, played some more, came back and thought yeah that looks pretty good. I glued the chipboard clock down and headed off to bed.  While I was drifting off to sleep I thought about a dream catcher that my daughter had been given for Christmas - next minute the cartoon lightbulb went on above my head and I was racing down to my craft room lol hoping like anything that the glue hadn't quite dried!

Here you can see that I added a bit of colour to the muslin cloth, simply by scrunching it up and then spraying.
I stamped the butterfly onto vellum, and added a bit of sparkle using sequins and crystals
