Welcome to My Garden **Sketchabilities**


Happy Hump Day everyone!!!! It is a new reveal day over at Sketchabilities and what a gorgeous sketch this time. Karan just keeps pumping out the gorgeous sketches time after time, I do not know how she does it. OOOO and I almost forgot to tell…I have been invited back for another 3 month term at Sketchabilities too. We are allowed to only do 2 terms so this one will be my last. Ok on with the reveal, here is my take on the sketch. I used My Mind’s Eye papers and lots of goodies on this layout. Such a hard thing for me, I left empty space, yepp I did…..empty space! AND I did NOOOO distressing. The photos are from one of my flower gardens.

On the top you can see all the layers that I used. The white flowers are from Prima, as well as I used some Prima packaging on this layout. The larger burgundy flowers I made myself and then tucked in some filler flowers. I used some Prima masks and distress inks for the masking all over the page.

In the middle section you can see more of the masking that I did, I punched out a few little hearts and added them to the layout. The butterfly is printed, then cut out and I added some stickles to it.

There are a couple of my flowers in the bottom cluster, and you can see the Dusty Attic leaves that I have altered with paints, inks and crackle accents. To finish off the layout I added some liquid pearls in each corner.

Here are a couple of side shots.


Well that was a fun fun layout to work with.  I hope that you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it….have a fantastic week.  Feel free to leave me some scrappy love comments, I love reading them ...take care and happy scrapping J
