Brothers **SOUS and Scrap That!**

Hello everyone and welcome. Can I just say one thing first…TGIF!!!!!! Finally! This week just dragged by. I think I will try to get some scrappy time this weekend, since I was gone away last weekend.. hehe J . Ok so on with my layout for today! It is reveal day at Stuck on U Sketches. So here is my layout and the sketch that I got to work with…it is by Designer/co-creator Leah Schaeffer. I gotta say when I first saw this sketch I thought….oh crap…what am I gonna do with that? I don’t have any travel photos. But now that is not the point of a sketch, all you need is it as a base to get you started, then you go off in what ever direction you want…and I did…and I love the way this layout turned out. The photo is my two grandsons. I did lots of masking using gesso behind it and stamping on top of it. I distressed the outer layer and did lots of inking on the inside layers. I made all of the rosette flowers myself. I used papers from my August Scrap That! kit and a few goodies from my stash.


Here is a close up of the masking and stamping. I added touches of stickles on the stamped leaves. I tucked in some seam binding ribbon and a piece of Dusty Attic under the rosette.

Here is the other side and the other rosettes I made. I added some gems and goodies to the centers of them and tucked in a DA snowflake.


I also did some masking on the corrugated cardboard…and a few more close ups.

Ok well that is it for today. Don’t forget to head on over to SOUS for tonnes of inspiration. I just love how every take on one sketch is so different. Thanks again for stopping by and I hope that you have a fantastic weekend.  Feel free to leave me some scrappy love comments, I love reading them ...take care and happy scrapping J
