Scrap & Music - Challenge #17

Some days ago I found another challenge-blog by browsing through other people's scrap-blogs. It's  the Scrap & Music challenge blog and it provides BEAUTIFUL sketches! The twist of their challenges is about using a part of a song as title or journaling. In this case the song was "like a prayer" by Madonna. I really like this idea, and I think I'm going to join some more of their challenges in future :) Here I joined a color challenge from Sketchy Colors #191, too. It's about using white and gold in your project. So here's my inspiration for the layout:


 and that's what I created: 

I'm a little bit unhappy with the colors of the picture I took of the layout, because it just couldn't catch the right colors. The white was either too grey or too yellow, or the gold is way too dark. Anyway, although this is a rather "clean" layout, I used a lot of different techniques for the background. On some spots I used golden molding paste with a mask, on some other spots I used different shades of golden embossing powder and some golden perfect pearls.  

I grabbed my glittered die-cuts and gave the rose a golden finish. 

I made the big filmstrip by myself out of a piece of scrap-paper and added some holes with my crop-a-dile. The gear looks like a film roll and matches quiet good with the rest of the layout.

The banner-pieces and the ticket are cut from different embossed and glittered golden papers.  

The beginning of the title is written with liquid pearl color.

Thank you so much for stopping by and wishing you a fabulous weekend!
