Ballerina Girls ~Stuck on U Sketches~

Welcome sketch lovers! Welcome Stuck on U Sketches lovers! Welcome everyone! Got a great simple layout to share with you today, featuring sisters Cassidy and Lucia! Love my sweet great nieces! They are as adorable as they look!

I used a combination of Bo Bunny papers Prairie Chic and Kaiser Kraft Base Coat. I liked the white brick background paper as it mimicked the brick background in some of the photos.  I added some Dusty Attic brick pieces that I painted white with gesso and used a chunky texture paste with a bit of Weathered Wood distress ink on top.

 Here is the simple yet versatile sketch designed by our Leah Schaeffer! Check out her blog! 

here is a close up of the flower cluster, featuring some Prima blooms, and some I am Roses blooms and some Dusty Attic ferns. I added some cheese cloth strands tucked in around the flowers.

 Here you can see more of the texture I added to the bricks,  and some Viva Decor Pearl Pen randomly placed on the pink floral paper.

 I used a Prima mask and some light molding paste. I love my masks! The title is made with some Prima alphas. Love the little butterflies perched on the paper....I used a Martha Stewart punch for those. I added some doodling around the edges of the layered papers, and the photos. I thought it helped ground them with the added touches of black.

 I used a Martha Stewart punch around the page punch in a distressed fashion around the edges of the brick background paper, and bent the edges up.

 another close up of my 2 cuties!
