Woohoo! It's Friday again and I've got a 4 day weekend! I'm so looking forward to that!
And of course, with it being Friday .. it's time for another reveal at Stuck on U Sketches ! There is lots going on this weekend at SOUS .. we have announced our new design team members (congrats, ladies!) and we have a new sketch posted. Additionally, our current DT was challenged to use some papers donated by Glitz Design. This is the Distressed Collection and it is gorgeous! The 3 of us always get really excited to see how the other members of the team use the same paper. Of course, we hope you play along .. using the papers of your choice! And one last thing .. we have blog candy donated by Glitz, so leave a comment at SOUS to be in the drawing and respond by September 9th.
Okay, on to the layout. The colors of this paper collection were perfect for some photos I took at my dgd Malerie's Senior Recital .. the repeat version played for those of us who couldn't get to OBU on a week night. Thanks, Mal! It was fantastic music played by one extremely talented gal. How do they memorize one solid hour of music? Anyway, Maleries wore a black satin dress with a red collar and lots of rhinestone jewelry. Talk about matching photos to paper .. I was all over this one LOL!
Here is a close-up of one of the flower clusters .. all Prima from Generations Crafting except for the floral vine which was from Angelica's Etsy store. The rhinestone flourish is one I've had on hand forever from Zva. Was glad to finally use it up!
I thought the black and white striped paper was representative of a piano keyboard and that the curve of the sketch mimicked the lines of a grand piano. I love how that all came together. I didn't get a close-up but there is a row of black lace that I placed at the top of the LO which reminded me of the curtain on a stage. I added some black stones along the lace to dress it up even more.
My photo mat was cut with my Cricut Sentimentals cartridge .. by now you know it's my fave! I chalked it in red and added some red stones to the top.
My title is a combination of black MME Lush alphas and Opposites Attract for the word revisited in red.
Lastly, a close-up of the red ribbon from my stash .. and one of my flowers cut with Graphically Speaking. I actually cut a whole mat of flowers but they just didn't suit me as well as the Prima for this particular page.
This was a fun sketch .. so I hope you will play with us this time. You have 2 weeks to complete your project. And let me just put in a plug here that Generations Crafting will be carrying all the new lines of Glitz Designs. Be sure to check it out HERE. And you can use my referal code for 5% off your first order ... ref-ku7ys.
Now let me hear a round of applause for our newest SOUS team members: Fern Riley, Debbie Burnes, Beatriz Guzman, Annette, Stine and Lisa McIntyre (Bug Junkie). Welcome aboard, ladies! You will soon be receiving an email from Leah with further information.
