Sketchabilities #124

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  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.

Products used:

Cosmo Cricket - Fish tales collection
Websters - 6"vellum sheet
Me Minds Eye - Banner stickers
printed tissue paper
Glitz - transparent element
Kaiser gems
Tim Holtz - splatter template

Thanks for looking and hope your having a wonderful day.

Bye for now!!!

  2. Wow ! Love your page ! I especially love how you have worked the very "angular" hexagon shapes with the vey rounded, curvy, "organic" swirls in the background. Brilliant use of "opposites".
