I have been eyeing up the sketches over there for a little while thinking they look like a whole lot of fun. But honestly, it has just been a little crazy around here that scrap time for me has been quite limited. I literally have stacks of pretty things starting to pile up that I haven’t had time to use. Shhh don’t tell Gary about that!
I have been dying to get out the Maggie Holmes Flea Market and this sketch just seemed perfect for the occasion.
You really can’t have too much Maggie on one page can you? Here is my take on the sketch. I love love love the sentiments on this patterned paper which worked perfectly for my photos. I also slightly moved the sketch to the right rather than the left and side of the page.
I had fun creating and distressing my background. First, I used my pink and gold gelatos to create a border around the edge of the patterned paper … I used the gelatos directly onto the paper and then the little brush with water to melt the colour a little bit so it wasn’t so harsh. Next I used the pink gelato and applied it to the edge of a glass jar to create the circles on my background as well. Lastly I applied the gelato colour directly to the dauber and stamped some spots randomly on my page. I also added pink and gold mister huey mist splatters!
How cute are these little stitched embellies… these are definitely a fav of mine. I also discovered the the gelatos worked amazingly well to colour my embellishments to alter them. I have used the pink gelato on the canvas cut butterfly and also my cameo cut above. I also used some of the flea market PL mini kit to layer behind my string of photos at the top. The little pegs are so cute and are left overs from my Pier stash.
Thanks so much for stopping by today. I really enjoyed playing along with this sketch. I hope you have enjoyed reading about how I put together my layout.
