Not much going on in my neck of the woods today. But I did complete a few layouts, which was great!
I got "stuck" on one sketch challenge that required me to use "texture paste" on my layout.
Since I don't have texture paste, my next endeavor is making my own. And I actually have the "recipe" to make it. I just need talcum powder. I was sure I had some of that kicking around. Bummer!
So, I guess I'll have to skip this challenge.
But, I did complete a layout for Sketches With Color for their February sketch and color palette challenge. This is the sketch:
And this is the color palette to use:
This is what I created:
This is our daughter when she was 13 years old and in the 8th grade (Aug 1995).
Paper: Basic Grey, Colorbok, Other
Lace Paper Doily
Sticker Sentiment: K&Co.
Rub on Flower
Perfect Pearls Mists: Forever Red & Sunflower Sparkle
Clear Embossing Powder
The sticker was matted on cardstock and the edges distressed. This layout is pretty plain, so I added a rub on flower under the title.
I misted the paper doily, covered it with embossing powder and heat embossed it. It's a subtle effect, which was what I was going for.
Rather than add the banners straight down, I angled them a bit for some interest. The Banners were misted with Sunflower Sparkle.
Here's a closer look at the doily.
This photo shows some of the "shine" from the embossing powder.
Thanks for stopping by!
