New Sketch

Hi Everyone!! I am a little late in sharing this with you, but there is still plenty of time for you to check out the new sketch up at Let's Scrap! This week's sponsor is Memorable Seasons and they are offering up $25.00 to shop with!! WooHOO!! Gotta love when you can pick out your own goodies!

I had a lot of fun working with the right hand side of the sketch. The square grid was so appealing to me!!


DD and I had a blast last weekend doing a mini photo shoot outside!! I wanted to take some time and capture her, as she is just growing up too fast! Where does the time go? I just love this picture of her and the first word that came to my mind was Carefree, so I had to title it that!!
I love how the burlap really added a lot of texture to this LO, but wanted to fem it up a bit so I added the eyelet lace.

Here are some close ups:

I used Maya Road chipboard alphas for the title. Blotted them with alcohol inks and sanded a bit to rough them up.

The ticket is from Tim Holtz and to create the burlap flowers I just stamped right on it. Then added a bit of glitter to make them a bit more girly. This picture also shows how I added some mesh behind the photo to again add a bit of texture and visual interest.

The flowers are from Maya Road and covered with some home made glimmer mists. I actually used them as a mask for another project and had them at my disposable as a bellie. I love how the pearls turned out for the swirls and will surely do this again. To alter the burlap a bit, I painted some gesso onto it, then blotted with a couple colors of alcohol inks, and painted on a thin layer of home made glimmer mist, although that doesn't show up to well in the photo.

I have been looking for lots of ways to recycle packaging these days and get the most out of my products while cutting down on waste. The little bingo card is from Jenni Bowlin's packaging.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you head on over to Let's Scrap and check out all the other fabulous creations made by the DT there, as well as give the sketch a try!
