~My Creative Sketches~ November Sketch Challenge

Well it time for My Creative Sketches November sketch reveal! This months sketch is truly gorgeous, and I knew exactly which photo and paper line I was going to use for it! The photo is of my cousin's daughter Madelyn,[don't you just LOVE this photo?] and Prima's Romance Novel collection was made for it!

 Here is the gorgeous sketch designed by Kim Keane!

I used a toilet paper roll dipped in gesso and made circles in different areas of the layout.

 I used a stencil and light molding paste. Once that was dry I outlined it and colored it with a wash of Distress Stains.

 I used a new EK Success punch for around the outside of the circle. I cut it up into pieces, making it look like individual flowers and inked them and scrunched them up and touched them with gesso here and there. 

I fussy cut some of the papers and tucked it in beside the photo, along with a Prima clock and some flowers.

 I love this flower cluster at the upper left hand corner of the photo. I touched these flowers with gesso as well.

 The photo its self chose the title of the layout for me, and I had to use the Prima wooden letters for part of it!
 I used gesso on the flowers and tips of the papers, and used Prima's black tassels. I used a Martha Stewart punch around the page punch for the light background paper, and distressed those edges with ink and by tearing some areas.
