Sketchabilities 115

Good Morning, its a beautiful one here in Sunny Queensland.  Although I do love winter I'm happy to say weve only had one cold snap so far.  Although QLD's cold snap is probably pretty mild to most other states and countries.  Well whatever your weather temp is I hoping you are getting some creative time in.

My first share for the week, oh who am I kidding!!!  its probably going to be my only share. It takes me a good few hours to create a page, between paint drying, interruptions. work and lets not to mention quality time with  family and sleep it doesn't leave a whole lot of time to create. But if I get a couple of pages a week done I am happy with that.

I played along with the Sketchabilities sketch, I just love how inspirational they are. If you haven't been over there go and check them out.  I'm sure you will find loads of inspiration!

Sketch 115

 My twist!!!

I have used this picture of my baby, not that she is a baby any more as she will be 20 in a few weeks.  However its one I haven't scrapped, its not the perfect photo but when I look at it, it reminds me what a gorgeous baby she was to deal with.  Even at 20 she has a sweet nature!!!

Close up of the beautiful Memory Box banner die I have used.  I also went with the layered frame as that was quite dominant in the sketch. 

Here i have used quite a few cutouts, one of the things I love using on my pages over anything.   I love the challenge of taking a sheet of paper and finding something interesting to use.

This close up is the best I could get, showing the layers I have created, although they have been a little covered with gesso and inks.  But I'm sure you get the picture.

Products Used:

Prima Flowers & Paper
