I’ve got super exciting news for you today…. I made it into the Stuck?! Sketches design team!! Yuhuuuuu! I have been a fan of Stuck?! Sketches since I started scrapping in 12×12, so being chosen to be part of the team is not only an honour but almost like a dream come true!
Come over their page where they are announcing the new team, I am surrounded by a very talented group of ladies! I still can’t believe it… I need to pinch myself! 😀
So come over in a few days when I can show you my first layout for this amazing team!!
Today’s layout is inspired by the first fortnightly sketch over at Stuck?! Sketches. When I first saw it I said “this is perfect to use my 5kg box of scraps” and I did! I used my box of scraps! I’ve only made a little dent on it, it is still 4.999 kgs 😀
Because the photo I was scrapping was of a rainbow, I knew I had to make a rainbow of pattern papers 🙂 Here it is:
And here is the sketch!
As you can see in the sketch, under the strips of pattern paper, there are some splatters of mixed media. I wanted to keep my background quite white, so I sprayed with my White Heidi Shine and the result is quite subtle, but I love the shimmery effect. I am not sure how well it can be appreciated in the photo. I also used a bit with Tinsel Heidi Shine and a few black watercolour splatters. I should have waited until the ink sprays were dry before adding the watercolour splatters, as they run a bit…
For the embellishments, I used “Life is Beautiful” by Fancy Pants, and some buttons and sequins from my stash.
Thanks for visiting, and read you soon!
Today’s layout I created just on Monday for a mini challenge on the Mercy Tiara facebook group, with a Creative Scrappers sketch set by Moira 🙂
Here’s my layout and the sketch:
I used the You Rock collection by Cocoa Vanilla Studio. I am very pleased to say that I still have enough papers and embellishments for at least 4 or 5 layouts more! <3
Here are two more closeups:
I hope you have liked this layout, and thanks for visiting!
I had a bit of time for a layout earlier, and since I was also home alone, I decided to make a video! The layout it’s based on the single page sketch for Stick it Down, and I had lots of fun making it!
I used papers from Shimelle’s first collection and other Shimelle embellishments from other collections and I am so happy with how it’s turned out! Here it is:
I had a tiny accident when splattering the black Heidi Shine, and I smeared a tiny bit in the circle embellishment, however I managed to clean it a bit. You can still see it, but not too noticeable.
And here are a couple of closeups:
And I made a YouTube process video! Here it is:
Thanks for visiting today and hopefully see you very soon!
Today’s layout has been made using Stuck? Sketches August 1st sketch. It is a lovely sketch and the layouts by the design team are truly inspiring!
This is my layout:
I used the “Just be you” collection by Echo Park Paper. I have only used this collection in one other layout and I thought it was time to get it out again!
Something that bothered me a lot about this layout is that I don’t remember the date when these photos were taken! I know it was a special date, like an anniversary but I have no idea of which year! So it could be 2008, before we got married, or it could be 2010 for our first wedding anniversary… Not sure! I have been looking at other photos to see if I have my hair in a similar style, so I can recognise the date, but it’s proving difficult! Unfortunately the date stamp in the digital photos is wrong (it says 01.01.2008), so I’m so gutted! Hopefully, Jon will be able to help me figure it out and then I can add the date under the stamped word “Lyndhurst”.
Here are a couple more close ups:
Thanks so much for visiting today and read you very soon!
