sketch #6

The sketch only had 1 photo but I added 2 to show the whole story of the kyak-DH just HAD to have one! The banner was made by cutting diamond shapes & folding them in half & sticking them onto a piece of cord with sticky dots. The chipboard word was painted using paint daubers & then Dimensional Magic was dotted on to create water droplets. The green border was traced & cut from a stencil.

I haven't done a lot of scrapbooking lately as I have been sorting out my stamps. To store them I put them in a plastic sleeve & then into a folder. I would like to have a catalogue of them to see what they look like stamped up....but that's a job for another day!

sketch #4 & 5

Here are the next sketches & the layouts I did from them.

I used patterned paper that had a patch effect already- the wine paper & then the other patterned paper. I did a row of stitching along the join. The title tag was made by layering elements together.

For this layout I didn't use a shield shape but used lacey paper instead. On the right side of the layout I used a plastic template & gesso to create the pattern then sprayed it with Glimmermist & wiped the excess off the Gesso before it dried. Paper flowers & Prima roses added a girly touch with the swirls. The title tag was made with a word sticker, German scrap wings, Tim Holtz slide strip, round tag & a swirl.

sketch #2 

I have been making layouts from sketches from the pencillines website. They started at the beginning of the year so I have a couple to do to catch up. Here are 2 more that I completed.
The first one I did as a double layout as I wanted to use all the photos. The sketches are below the layouts.

The small tag is from a tshirt and I added a leather frame & stick pin.

The title is cut from sizzix words & gems were adhered to the swirl on the word as well as inbetween the butterflies.
