Is it really Friday already? I love reveal Friday at Stuck on U Sketches! I can't wait to share with you the sketch we got to work with this week! It is an original by Nanne herself! This one came really easy for me, and everything just seemed to flow right. Gotta love that when that happens! I finally got my hands on Pink Paislee's Butterfly Garden Paper Collection and I am in love! These papers are so gorgeous, and the paper collection contained 4 sheets of each design! Yes! 4!
This gorgeous girl is my daughter who is getting married on August 6/11. This photo was taken during a engagement photo shoot with Cheryl Wolfe Photography., who happens to be my sister! There will be more layouts from the engagements photos to follow.
Here is the sketch that Nanne did, and I kept pretty true to the design. Why mess with a good thing?
I did a whole lot of fussy cutting, and the 2 butterflies are part of that. I covered them with Rock Candy Distress Stickles and layered them once they were dry. I used pop dots under the wings to help them stay in the position I wanted them to be in. I used a strand of pearls for the butterfly trail.
For the title I used white Thickers and slightly overlapped them, and I also used MM mini alphas. I used my sewing machine to add the gorgeous detail of the stitching. Through out the layout you will see areas where I have used touches of white Puffy Paint. Love that touch!
I used a Dusty Attic piece that I painted with Gesso, then Rock Candy Distress Paint, and finally a touch of Tea Dye Distress ink. I hand made the flower, adding many touches to add character. The leaves were made with a stamp from Heartfelt Creations. I inked it, cut it out, shaped it and glued it in place.
Here you can see the dimension of the little roses tucked under the fussy cut flower, and the touches of stickles I used.
I cut the brown flourish on my Cricut/Gypsy, inked it and then embossed it with Walnut Stain Distress Embossing powder. Don't forget to rub it once its cool to get rid of the release crystals and discard them! More touches of Stickles on the butterfly and to highlight the roses in the pattern paper.
In this photo I wanted to show you the dimension of the butterfly and its pearl trail as it loops around the flowers.
Please head on over to Stuck on U Sketches to see what the rest of the design team has come up with, and take a look at the goodies you could win if you participate in the 2 sketch challenges!
