Another Sketch

A very quick post this week from me, too much work on at the moment and no time to scrap!
Life can be unfair to us scrappers. lol
Another month and another sketch comp
Here is the sketch l used for my layout from Sketches with a Twist

You had to use ink or misting and here is my take

Here are some close ups

I have added hand stitching, liquid pearls, border punched edges. The chipboard has been covered with gesso and then misted as well.

Until l find some free time, enjoy yourselves:)

Glitz Design papers

Here are a couple of layouts recently done using papers and embellishments from Glitz

It's so easy to design pages when you use everything from the same collection.
Here are some close ups

I distressed and inked all the papers and added liquid pearls to the printed sentiment on the background paper. Border punches were used and Spellbinders dies 

I used a mixture of flowers from Prima, Manor House and others l had in my stash. The main butterfly is Prima

Here is another layout. I love this photo of my mum and Tom.

The bottom half of the page is another paper layered over the top of the background and border punched. The Believe stamp is from Kaisercraft
Liquid pearls have been added along the edge of the floral paper, the chipboard half circle has been painted and mod podge put over that.
The flowers are once again a mixture of Prima and Manorhouse

Here are a couple of close ups

Thanks for looking!

Reached the End

Well it seems like such a long time since l blogged something.
Oh yeah, it is!!
Life is busy, busy, busy but l did manage to finish a layout for BTW
The word to use was REACH and l hid the journalling under the photo.
After a delayed flight out of Vegas we arrived in Maimi to find we had missed our connecting flight to Orlando by 15 minutes.
The airline put us up in a hotel and gave us vouchers to use for dinner in the airport.
This is us eating our dinner on the run. We were tired and sad to have missed out flight.

Here are some close ups

I have used liquid pearls to outline the black flower, added twine over the top, cut out some of the papers, inked and layered. The papers are from Teresa Collins.

Thanks for looking, leave a comment if you like and please feel free to be a follower

Gotta Love Sketches

I wanted to use this sketch for a layout so l did a bit of a rush job this week.
It's from Sketchabilities - check them out

Here is my take - more pictures from our Disney World trip

The whole layout is made from the July main kit at My Creative Skcrapbook
The papers are from Carta Bella and have the most amazing texture.

So this time l used a mask and added misting as well
I cut out a banner and popped it up over the top banner on the paper.
Everything has been inked.
The circles on my bottom banner are popped as well
 Here are some close ups

Must dash, the kids are starrrrving. (familiar sounds l hear at this time of the day)
You would think they never got fed!!
