Sister Hood

Happy Hump Day! Hehe…I am actually off of work today..so I got to finish off this layout that I have been working on, ran outside to get a couple of photos before the snow blows in. YES SNOW! Grrrr hehe. OK so this layout is based on the sketch over at Once Upon a Sketch. I love it there, there is a journaling criteria and I need that little push to journal. You had to pick something special about being a woman, so I picked my daughters and Sister Hood and what is special about that. I have used one of the new Glitz collections, some Dusty Attic chippys, Prima and Petaloo flowers and lots of Tattered Angels goodies.


For this chippy I have first painted it white then I used some TA Glimmer Glam on it. The stamping under it is from LaBlanche and they are the nicest most intricate stamps.

Close up of the distressing and journaling. I also did a bit of light masking behind the journaling with a Prima mask and TA Glimmer mists.

I have used the same stamping under this flower cluster and used some of the paper scraps to make a little fan to tuck in.

 This is my fav piece of this layout. The dress form chippy. I first embossed it, then I used some TA glimmer mists and inks on it, and added some liquid pearls to finish it off. The swirl behind it is done with molding paste and a mask. I added some glimmer mist to the paste to get a pinkish color then added some ink to it after it dried.

Ok well that is it for today. I will be back tomorrow with my reveal for The Color Room. 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
