Hi I'm here to share my Scrap the Girls layout for April.
One of my favourite type of challenges this month....a sketch.
The sketch is based on an 8.5x11inch layout by Malinda and we'd love you
to give this size layout a go too but its not compulsory.
Having said that I was having such a fun time creating my layout
I forgot all about the size of it and automatically went for the old 12x12.
When I was creating the background on this one
I must say I was totally inspired by this girls amazing
scrapping. I love the bright, fresh layouts she creates
and her layered gesso and paint backgrounds are always
a delight with so much gorgeous texture.
Thank-you for the inspiration Helene!
Visiting your blog is always a pleasure. :)
Here's my take on the sketch which i've rotated 90degrees clockwise.
Maggie plucked this flower off the table arrangement when we were out to tea
last Christmas and put it in her hair. I added a title from a Mumford and Sons song
called 'After The Storm'.
And of course I've teamed up lots of D-Lish Scraps
embellies to enhance the sketch.
Like this giant flower button how funky is that?
And with a mini crochet doiley in its center.
There are also some
Here's a close-up of the background.
The black stamped flowers are Dylusions and I
used punchinella with the paint and with the gesso
one of my favourite tools to get some texture on there.
Can you guess what it is?
A comb! Why do the cheapest things become the most favourite
and effective tools?
Ok that's enough of me for today off you go and
scrap using the STG's sketch challenge.
thanks for visiting,
