Hello everyone and welcome to my blog and the release of Sketchabilites #45. The sketches are gorgeous to work with and there was a new announcement today. Everyone now has a chance to be a guest designer..how exciting is that. Ok so on with my layout for today’s release. The photos are my grand daughter Kylee, she is just a sweetie. I used Basic Grey Curio papers and lots of goodies from my stash.
In this close up you can see the masking that I did with a Prima mask. I added some smooch and liquid pearls to the masked area. I distressed this layer of paper and did lots of inking on the edges with Distress inks. The butterflies, I printed them out, and added a gem and some stickles to them. I clipped off a piece of the vine and added a little mirror embellishment from my stash.
Tip: use pop ups to adhere embellishments like butterflies, it gives them some extra dimension.
The flower cluster is a mixture of a Prima vine and the pink flowers I made myself. I used a tutorial from my friend Lisa and you can see it here.
I punched the circle with a Martha Stewart corner punch and I used the same punch for the photo mats. I tucked in a post card that I water distressed a bit.
Tip: I like to ink the edges on water distressed areas to really bring out the raised areas and make them pop a bit.
Well that is my Sketchabilities #45. I hope to see all of you come and play along with us over there, the sketches are awesome. Thank you so much for stopping in for a peek. I hope that you all have a fantastic week, be safe and stay warm. Feel free to leave me some scrappy love comments, I love reading them ...take care and happy scrapping J
