Better late than never

What a week its been at work, the busiest week of the year and posting this layout slipped my mind, so please excuse me!

Lets Get Sketchy have a super cute layout this week to play along with, l had so much fun creating my layout and here it is


I have used a stencil on the background. On some parts l have simply inked and to others l have added a sandy texture paste. Its hard to tell from the pic but it has a gritty texture and adds that something else to the layout. Over that l added some ink splatters, stamping and liquid pearls.

Some close ups

I have painted the wooden birds and added gloss

Stamping and ink splatters

You can sort of see the sandy texture in the yellow, I've added layers under my photo

Here is the sketch to follow, link your entries up HERE

Lets Get Sketchy

June is almost over and l am sharing a layout at Lets Get Sketchy using lots of stamping.
You can check it out HERE at the LGS blog

Here is my layout


I have coloured some of the stamped flowers and have again used  Freckled Fawn products that we were given to use throughout our layouts this month. This time l used the wooden shapes to add another flower dimension.

I must add that my inspiration for this layout came the very talented Di Garling, she is such a talented scrapper.

Thanks for looking:)
