sketch a day-5, 6, and 7

thought i'd share some more of my sketch a day 
Layouts from the competition over at SFS.
I'm really, really enjoying getting a new sketch each day 
and getting at least one page done a day.
Here's day 5, using some Authentique papers, just love the quality of these 
papers so thick and they have an awesome textured finish!

this is day 6 and I used MME embellishments on this one.
the base is white cardstock that I've gesso'd with a prima
mask and then once it was dry I sprayed with Adirondack colour washes
(gosh I love those sprays they have such vibrant colours) 
and if you add a water spray the colours blend beautifully!
here's a close-up

Haha i seem to have a theme going with most of my 
layouts for this comp. they are all back to school photo's.
I scrap mainly in Chronological order so...

Ahhh here's something non school. Sketch number 7, my twins
on the morning of their 8th birthday. I scrapped this 
one with some more MME.

This layout is based on one of 
the sketches at Sassy Lil Sketches this month.

Love my little banner made out of the MME chipboard and cardstock tags
that came in the Rosey kit .

that's it will share some more 'sketch a day' pages during the week.
cheers, thanks for visiting.
