Hello all my crafty friends....
As I said in my last post it's been a hectic few months and whilst I still haven't quite worked out my crafty space I did finally get a chance to scrap. Although I didn't meet the time frame I thought I would still share anyway. I love the sketches over at Sketchabilities, I find them not only inspirational, but a good way to challenge yourself when your time poor like me. Like any challenge I like to at least try and incorporate the obvious challenge in it, for me it was the hexagons. Sometimes it can be a shape or a colour that you just don't often use so when it comes up in a design I like to challenge myself and try and use it rather than avoid it.
I was also able to to make use of one of my recent purchases a Creative Memories Hexagon punch. Not that I really, really needed one, but needless to say I now have one...lol Even better it punches out 2 sizes.
My take on the Sketch!!!
For the background I've used a mix of printed tissue paper, Maya Roads white mist, black gesso and teal tumble dry colour.
For the hexagons I've used a mixed of punched out one and some transparent one's that I cut from an old Hambly Sheet, I then did some machine stitching over them.
The paper for the background is an old Cosmo Cricket paper from the Salt Air range and I have also used a Websters Vellum print to frame the photo.
