Guest Designers Sketch - Camilla Ekman

Each week at Colorful Creations we Spotlight a guest designer, this week we had Camilla Ekman, I'm sure most of you have seen Camilla's beautiful work, if not then pop on over and check out Camilla's work.



Its probably safe to say I strayed a whole lot on this one, firstly I twisted the sketch and after that it got lost in translation. Ooops!!!  I have a few of these portrait shots of my nephew and after doing my last grungy boy page and thought I would do another one.  I used papers from Kaiser Craft, did loads of tearing and distressing, added some machine stitching and punched corners and finished of with some coloured textured paste and masking.

I had a piece of Dusty Attic left over from another project that I thought worked in beautifully with the whole grunge theme and the alpha letters I embossed with Rangers White Puff and inked with black.

I also found an old Karen Fosters rubon with boys sayings and randomly rubbed these onto the page finishing with a spritz of Perfect Pearls "Blue Patina".

Products Used:  Kaiser Papers "On The Move"& √Ąttitude", Dusty Attic "Cottage Window" & "Typewriter Font", Ranger Perfect Pearls & Embossing Puffs, Prima Chipboard, Maya Roads Pin, Textured Paste, The Crafters Work Shop Masks, Karen Foster Rubons, Tim Holtz Film Strip, Inks and Hessian.

I hope everyone is have a wonderful weekend, its definitely been a warm one here in Sunny QLD with a side of smoke, unfortunately some people don't understand that when its been quite dry dropping a cigarette can start a fire and when you live on acreage its a little worrying, looks like the Fire Brigade has it under control and hopefully the winds will not pick up.   Otherwise POOF. I'm sure a fire would love my scrapping supplies.

As always thank you to those who have stopped by and left me their lovely and encouraging words, until next time.
