The month before christmas!

So here we are into November, school is almost finished for the year and the weather is heating up.
This week it's Team B on show at Lets Get Sketchy. You can see this weeks sketch and all the great layouts created HERE.
We have combined the sketch with a mood board, gorgeous warm colours of summer!

So onto my layout - this week l used white cardstock and coloured it using distress stains, paints and inks from Ranger. I have built up layers of colour using different stencils and here is what l finished up with

I began with a brick stencil but ended up covering almost all of it, haha
Here are some more close ups
The lighter colour is actually the underneath the red and yellow, l really like this effect. Firstly l started with distress paint and a stencil, then added distress stain so it looks like layers but feels flat if you touch the layout
My letters are Tim Holtz Grungeboard and l have added layers to these as well
Here is the sketch to follow and the mood board. I hope you can join in with us this week

October Week 2

Almost the middle of October, the shops are getting busy in preparation for Christmas and at work it is the season for weddings. So l thought my photo this week was appropriate to enjoy some time relaxing in all the hustle and bustle.

I stuck to the sketch and added some stamping to the border of my background paper, inked my edges and added a few buttons.
Here is the sketch to follow and check out what the design team has done HERE
Enjoy your day!
