'take chances'

'Nothing lasts forever. So live it up, drink it down, laugh it off, avoid the drama,
take chances and never have regrets because at one point
everything you did was exactly what you wanted.'
- Marilyn Monroe

Hello girls! Are you ready for some inspiration? I felt so inspired by this quote from Miss Monroe herself that I went looking for a pretty photograph of her and found this one, isn't it gorgeous? 
Wasn't she the epitome of beauty? 
I was thinking about her (and another blonde lady who I was fascinated with all my life, Princess Diana) while creating this layout, and how some of the most beautiful women in the world are often unfortunately, some of the most unhappy. 

To find out more about the March Words & Painterly challenge, 
our Creative Guest and the prize for the month, please go here.

Here are a few close ups:

I used some gorgeous Blue Fern Studios paper from the 'Timeless' collection, and 
then I used some Prima Mica Powder in 'Powder Pink' mixed with gesso through a 
Prima stencil on my background.

I would like to enter my layout in a challenge on a blog called Skrapovy that's
all about creating with dark backgrounds, more details on the challenge here.

Thanks for visiting!
Hugs, Lisa xo
