Here's a layout that was submitted at Sketches With Color for their January 15 Challenge.
The challenge: Use the Sketch + Color Combo + Butterflies.
Here's the sketch:
And the color palette:
This is what I created:
Looking at this photo reminds me just how fast our children grow up. They were 11 years old and 11 1/2 months old for this photo.
Fiskars Border punch
Swirls: Traced & hand cut
Seam Binding Rosette: Hand Made
Gems: Glitterazzi & Forever in Time
Color Mists: Wilton
Perfect Pearls Mists
Beaded Flower: Leeza Gibbons
Cardstock Heart Sticker: Daisyd's
Love these cardstock stickers from winning a challenge! Woohoo! :)
I added the rub on and beaded flower.
The background paper and swirls were misted. I used a border punch along the top of my journaling block and distressed the edges.
Aren't these the cutest? I found these at a discount store a year or so ago. I hesitated on purchasing them because of the color and was so happy to actually be able to use at least one of them! I added a gem in the center.
Here's my flower grouping. I layered several flowers for the largest flower and added a bow in the center. A variety of flowers were added around it and gems added in the centers. I also added two cute butterfly gems. The rosette was made with seam binding ribbon.
I think from this photo you can get a better look at the misting.
Thanks for stopping by!
