Wow! Its been a while since I posted on my blog! I miss one sketch and then BOOM! a month has gone by! Well, I am here now, and excited to share this super duper gorgeous sketch we have for you this reveal Friday at Stuck on U Sketches! I loved everything about it, and knew I would definitely do my best to do it justice!
I been wanting to try ripping for a while so I really wanted to do it on this layout...and I love the layered tattered edges that were produced with this technique! I gave the whole background a white wash, and I wanted to keep it very monochromatic. I used a new Bo Bunny stamp to make what to me looks like coffee cup rings, which I used gesso for.
Here is the sketch that our wonderfully talented Sandi Clarkson created,inspired by an equally amazing layout designed by Julie Winks.
I used a Kaiserkraft rubon for the title. It gave me a bit of trouble, but I think it adds to the shabbiness of the layout!
I used a Dusty Attic chippie frame and a doily to highlight the photo of my daughter and her then fiancee, now husband over looking the river. I painted the DA piece a lighter pink and then did a crackle treatment on it, finishing off with a cream paint.
I used a bit of Prima, the large cream flower and the resin heart. The rest of the flowers are from I am Roses and I colorized them to suit the layout.
Thanks so much for stopping by, your visits and comments mean so much to me! Please go to the SOUS blog and check out what the other designers came up with! I have a sneaky suspicion that you will be super inspired and will want to create your own take of this sketch!
