You know how I love my Fridays!!! The weekend officially starts (for me) in just a few hours! But more importantly, it is time for another SOUS reveal! This time we have an amazing sketch by our own Nanne Harry. And although I did not use any, this one would be perfect for those scraps you may have laying around. So, hopefully you will find some time this weekend or next week to get your new layout rolling ..
Here I've used some of Graphic 45's Little Darlings that I just HAD to have. These are just scrumptious papers and I can't wait to use some more of them! That little muffin in the photo is Sandi on her first birthday. Although I've tried to clean up the distressed photo in PSE, it could use some more help. But this is as good as I could get it for now.
I followed the sketch fairly closely this time but added in a few of my own little twists of course. There is lots of paper distressing and some punch work around the photo .. which then got covered up LOL. I fussy cut the little girl from the signature page of the Little Darlings collection and mounted her on foam adhesive to elevate her above the vertical strips.
My title is done on a Fab Scraps die cut piece which I've painted a warm Winter White and then inked. The alphas are Graphic 45. On the right you can see some of the chipboards elements that I bought to go with the collection. The gorgeous ribbon at the bottom is from Wal-Mart. I rarely buy ribbon there but found some pretty things the other day, so check it out! There is also a vertical piece of ribbon from my stash over on the left amongst the flowers.
As you can see, I went a little flower crazy and sure do like the results! Mostly, I've used Prima but some of the small ones were simply from my ever growing stash of small buds. I had fun adding in some color with the blue and the red. The clear florals I've had forever and am glad they finally have a home. Lastly I've added some crinkle ribbon from The Craft Spot and made a few butterflies with my MS punches.
I hope that you will visit all the designers and see what they have done with this great sketch. And moreover, that you will find time to play along. Also, if you have not been by Stuck on U Sketches, please hop on over. We have a surprise for a few lucky ladies!
Thanks for coming. Love reading your comments. Be sure to check out my post from Monday if you have not been by this week... that was a fun LO as well! Cheers!
