This month, My Creative Sketches came up with another beautiful sketch to play with for the chance to win a GORGEOUS prize! Look at these goodies up for grabs!!!
As part of the GDT for My Creative Scrapbook, i was able to be part of this exciting reveal. Here is the sketch for March, followed by my layout.
This is an old (well, not so old i guess) family picture that i had never scrapbooked for no particular reason. It is pretty much our only 'grown-up' family portrait which was taken 3 years before my dad passed away in 2004. I'm hoping to be cherishing this picture AND layout for a long time to come. Times goes by so fast, and sometimes we tend to forget that it all starts... and ends... with family.
I created this layout with some leftover products from my Limited Edition March kit from My Creative Scrapbook: the gorgeous yellow patterned paper and the resin frame both from Webster's Pages and the large white flower from Prima.
For all of you who like to dabble in a little mixed media on your pages and are wondering how i came up with this look on my chipboard title, i used a mixture of gesso, acrylic paint, embossing paste, distress inks and smooch glitz. It's a trial and error thing until you succeeded. :)
My chipboard leaves were done with mostly gesso and a couple shades of distress inks, and i added Stickles to my cut-out butterfly.
I used a Prima mask as well as distress ink and embossing paste to make the hexagons below. I then added the same effect on the cut-out paper hexagons. I am in love with embossing paste!
