Enjoy the Moments... Reveal Friday!!

First off, I'd like to wish all my American people a Happy Thanksgiving!!  We Canadians had ours last month so we are now gearing up for Christmas. Welcome to reveal day at Stuck on U Sketches! This weeks sketch is brought to us by Pagemaps. I used the color palette from The Color Room, Palette # 85, but didn't have my time zones accurate so I am too late to enter it.  How sad am I!

So! I will introduce to you, "Enjoy the moments"! This layout features my daughter and son-in-law on their wedding day!

This layout is brimming with techniques, and a few of them new for me.  I used Websters' Pages Trendsetter paper collection

Here is the cute sketch we got to work with. My layout seemed to take on a life of its own, but if you look closely you will see some resemblance!

I used Prima's brick wall stencil together with texture paste, and then inked over it with distress inks.  I love how it blended into the background of the photo!

I took advantage of the existing window ledge in the photo to add my Prima resin window on to. I made a whole bunch of rolled flowers..... they are addicting after a while!  On some of them I used Clearsnap Glue Gloss by Donna Salazar  as well as some of her Fairydust glitter!  I love them both!  I also used a Dusty Attic vine that I inked with distress stains and used stickles over top.  I tried something new that I saw Gerry Van Gent do, called an inverted scalloped circle. She is one talented lady!

I used a Dusty Attic Phrase for my tittle and I first used Picket Fence Distress stain so I could have a white "canvas" if you will, so my color of ink would be more true and so I could vary the intensity of the raspberry ink.  I love how it turned out! 

Here is a close up of my main flower cluster.  I used  a Prima  flower for my main flower and surrounded it with some more rolled flowers I made, and some Websters' blooms.

I also used some I am Roses leaves, and mini roses that I colorized for the color palette I was using.

So that's it for today! Thank you for stopping by! Please go to the Stuck on U Sketches blog and check out what the other girls designed for your viewing pleasure!  Have a good weekend and stay safe!
