Angelic **Sketchabilities**

Hi everyone and welcome to my blog. I still cant believe that summer is pretty much over and winter is on its way now..BOO! I hope it’s not a terrible winter! OK on to my layout for today...I used sketch #55 from Sketchabilities for this layout, this weeks palette at TCR, and lots of goodies from my stash..which never seems to go down by the way LOL. I did lots of distressed edges, inking and machine stitching. The photo is my niece last month.  Here is the gorgeous sketch and my take on it.



The title piece is from Dusty Attic and the cute little butterflies are punched out and then I just ink them and add a gem to the center.

For the DA swirl in the flower cluster I first painted white then misted a couple of colors and added some gems to it.


A couple more close ups of all the layers and goodies.


Well that is it for today. Do not forget to stop by Sketchabilities and look at all the gorgeous layouts from the Design Team. They are sure to inspire you. Thanks again for stopping by and I hope that you have a fantastic week.  Feel free to leave me some scrappy love comments, I love reading them ...take care and happy scrapping J
