Sorry this is late.... had Blogger issues and couldn't upload yesterday! We have another sketch challenge for you over at Stuck on U Sketches! The sketch is designed by our talented Ness, designed only for SOUS! Let me tell you, this was one fun sketch to work with!!!
This layout features another of my Great Nieces, Odessa. I cropped the photo and changed it to b/w so it worked better with my papers. I used some Basic Grey and DCWV, and Dusty Attics flourishes and birdhouse, machine stitching, distressing, inking and just plain had a blast making this layout!
I wanted to share a close up of the dusty attic flourish chippie I did. I used a technique by Natasha Aranjo Aguirre found here on the Dusty Attic forum. This was alot of fun to do! I didn't use the exact supplies she did, as I don't have any Glimmer Mists as of yet. I also added some Liquid Pearls drops to the flourish.
I made this flower using my TH Tattered Florals die and distress inks. I edged the petals with white puffy paint and then assembled the flower. I wanted to bring a aqua blue shimmer to the flower to tie it into other area of my layout, so I used my Treasured Island Aqua Moon Shadow Mist by lindy stamp gang. These mists are awesome, especially for vintage layouts. They have an amazing shimmer combined with the sepia tones.
