Welome back to my blog today where I'm sharing a DT page for
If you haven't played along before, Laura creates two wonderful sketches per
month and there are great prizes on offer. Details below.
I've used Maja Papers on an ivory background.
This is one of my favourite photos of my Husband - a tribute to him,
as we celebrate our Wedding Anniversary is this month.
Because Scrapmatts are one of the sponsors this month, I've used three of their
lovely chipboard pieces and one of their new stencils.
The tag behind the photo is chipboard which I covered with paper and cut in half
to show it the top and bottom. I love the cream on cream
look of texture paste through the lattice stencils.
Do you see the little fabric tab tucked in at the top?
It's from Charms creations, one of our regular sponsors.
I replaced the star shape on the sketch with this marvellous frame from Scrapmatts.
The grungy look was achieved with crackle paint,
embossing powder, Stampendous "Aged Marine" and various distress inks.
The Scrapmatts Timeless Memories title needed no treatment,
it teamed perfectly with the cream in the papers.
I was tempted to splash some blue paint around over the stencilling, but I forced myself to leave well enough alone. Often when I try to add a little dab of this, or a tiny dob of that, I take it one step too far and it all ends in tears! Does that happen to you?
