Family (My Creative Sketches March GDT reveal)

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!!!

I soooo wish i could play for a chance to win!!!

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!
Take out your paints, inks, papers, scissors and embellishments and create something beautiful this month inspired by the sketch above from My Creative Sketches.  You can see more inspiration from the DT right HERE and link up before April 14th .
