Happy Easter everyone!

This week Lets Get Sketchy have a great sketch to play along with, check out the link HERE

Here is my layout
 I have used gesso, ink and stencil work on my background, hand stitched the zigzag, cut out some flowers and embossed my chipboard title.
Some close ups
 For my title, firstly l used distress ink in Fossilized Amber, then covered it with Dylusions Spray in Squeezed Orange, finally adding clear embossing powder.

Here is the sketch to follow
I hope you can play along and upload your layouts HERE

Happy Saturday morning!

My daughter's nickname, ever since she was a toddler, is Miss Blissy, so when l saw the current challenge over at More than Words, l definitely knew l had to play along.
Bliss is usually a word describing a situation, how then did Alana get this funny nickname, I honestly can't remember! However it has stuck and that's what we call her
Here is my layout using gesso and the word 'Bliss'

 I used gesso to tone down my background paper under my photo, and used it with a stencil to create the pattern on the left side 
I added gesso then perfect pearls to the chipboard chain circle, finally finishing with clear embossing powder. It's hard to see the shine in my photo

Lots of layers under the photo
 I used my Sizzix to cut 2 doily's to create the flower
 Flower is from Manor House
All my papers are from Authentique.

Over at Lets Get Sketchy they are celebrating their birthday with lots of giveaways. Check out the fun HERE
