Spoil Yourself **Sketchabilities**


Hi everyone and welcome to my blog. I am away visiting my daughter and scheduled this post,so I hope it worked lol. Today’s layout is for reveal day at Sketchabilities. Karan designed this gorgeous sketch and it was fun to work with. I did lots of distressing, stamping and masking. The photo is me and my daughter on our way shopping in Vegas.

Here is a close up of the bottom corner. You can see all the stamping around the outside edges and under the masking. I used Prima papers and lots of Prima goodies on this layout. Almost everything here is from my Swirlydoos kits. The bluish purple flowers I made myself using my cricut. The title piece is a chippy from Dusty Attic. I first painted it white then used some chalks on it and glossy accents.

This is a close up of the masking in the center of the layout. The border scroll is also a chippy. I painted it white first, than I stamped it and chalked it and added some glossy accents and liquid pearls to it. I also tucked in lots of layers of goodies behind the photo.

Couple more shots of the layers and masking.


Well that is it for today. Do not forget to stop by Sketchabilities and look at all the gorgeous layouts from the Design Team.
