Hello faithful followers! Have I got an awesome layout to show you today! It's all because of this awesome sketch blog I am designing for! First I will show you my layout, and then the sketch.
Welcome to "Sweet - the most beautiful girl" This is another layout of one of my Great niece, Madden. This girl knows how to strike a pose and is extremely photogenic! I didn't take this picture...it was taken by Madden's mom.
This sketch was designed by Suepup, so click on her name and check out her blog. She has alot of amazing layouts etc that are sure to inspire!
I did another first, and made a banner. I'm not a big fan of them, but thought it lent its self very nicely to my layout. I simply free hand cut the triangles and with scalloped scissors cut out the scallops across the top. I used letters left over from a Swirlydoos kit. I put pop dots under the triangles to make them stand out better. I was very pleased with my first attempt!
TIP: to make the circle with the string of pink glittered pearls, I placed a luncheon plate upside down where I wanted the circle of pearls to be. I then took my Zip Dry adhesive and traced around the edge of the plate with a line of the adhesive. Then I took the string of pearls and placed it around the plate, taking care to note where I was placing my flowers etc so that if I didn't have enough pearls to make a complete circle I could use flowers etc as filler. Form the pearls around the plate and hold in place and leave the plate till the adhesive dries. Take the plate away and VIOLA! you have a perfect circle of pearls!
This dimensional glitter tag is from MME lost and found collection called Pretty, as well as the darker pink paper that I used my MS loops punch on.
I used my leaves stamp from Heartfelt Creations, stamped them on white card stock, fussy cut them and then inked them with various green inks.
In this photo you can see the tag and the flowers I made, minus the large flower which is a Prima bloom.
I took one of my MS butterfly stamps and stamped it with Archival Ink on white cardstock. Then I coloured it in with my Sakura Glaze pens. Then I put a generous layer of Diamond glaze on it and let it dry over night. I cut it out and then bent in between my fingers, cracking the glaze. If you click on the photo you will be able to see the crackle effect much better.
Thank you for looking and I hope you have been inspired. Please take a look at all the other fabulous designers at Stuck on U Sketches and leave them some love! I can hardly wait to show you what the next sketch is like and my interpretation of it looks like!
