Something a little different SOUS!

Hi there Friends!  I hope you have been enjoying the sketches from Stuck on U Sketches as much as I have!  The sketch for this week is from pagemaps, and is something different for me.

This time I wanted to get out of my comfort zone a bit and try something different.  This photo is of my brother kissing his newly married daughter on the cheek.  I just love the expression on Dayna's face!  She has a flare for the dramatic and tackles everything with passion.  I love this about her!  The photo was taken at Banff, Canada, where their reception was held.  I didn't do any editing to the photo and with its slightly over exposed look[that was planned]  I knew exactly what papers and techniques I would use!.  Just a note to add that I did not take this photo, but I do not know the name of their photographer.

Here is " Daddy's Girl"

I started off with white cardstock and got out my Smooch mist inks.  I wanted to get that splattered look that is popular these days.  Prima papers were perfect for the photo, and of course, PINK!  I also slapped on some Gesso in a few places for added texture.

I refrained from using my TH distessing tool [ you have no idea how hard that was!] but just could not NOT ink the edges! I think its impossible to see in the photos, but I used a fine glitter pen and out lined all the papers and photo.  I used some pink bling to go with the pink theme.

I rolled the edges of the blue strip of paper, and made the cute daisy like flower.

I used a paper doily and inked it with a couple of distress inks.  The tittle, Daddy's Girl is from Dusty Attics [which I love] I inked it with a raspberry/burgundy ink, and then embossed it with clear embossing powder.  I took 2 tickets from Pink Paislee, put the wedding date on one and inked it abit.  I made this flower as well.

Here I used a border punch on the piece of paper, put some pink flower ribbon and some fibers just under the paper, and tucked in a ticket and , of course, a butterfly.  I rarely make a layout with out a butterfly.  They are special to me, as they are my reminder of my mom who passed away 2 1/2 yrs ago, and the reason I started scrapbooking to begin with!

 Here is the sketch by pagemaps,  I hope you have enjoyed looking at my ' not so normal for me layout' as much as the fun I had making it!  Don't forget to check out the SOUS blog and see what the other designers came up with, and please leave them some love too!
