Good morning! I'm back to share another layout with you. This one was inspired by the current sketch at Sketchabilities.... take a look:
I just love everything about this sketch!! It allows me to play with my inks, stencils and paper, lots of paper! Here's my take on the sketch:
For more inspiration to complete this layout I followed the current Friday challenge at Frosted Designs which was to use flowers and stitching on a layout. Hmm, lets see, do I love flowers ??? YES!!! And stitching,too, so this challenge was super fun to take part in!!
My layout started off with a simple piece of cardstock... inked up with Prima fluid chalk resist ink ( goes on like a dream!!!) ,splattered some gold Glimmer Mist about and then stamped with an old Stampin' Up! weathered background stamp ( removed from bulky wooden block and now I love it!!) and some Stamper' s Anonymous music notes stamp and then stencil with a brick pattern that I made with my Silhouette machine. Next come the papers... all Teresa Collins ( love her vintage style sooo much!!!) I used papers from her Vintage Finds collection, which I have in a 6X6 paper pad... cut them out in various sizes, inked them and even made a few flowers and tags with leftover scraps.The mini alpha stickers and gold border strips are from her Summer Stories collection. Oh yeah, and for the stitching part, well that's on my sparkly border strip, and the bingo papers , plus I randomly adhered some black thread around the corner. The chipboard title and flower are Prima ( inked too)and the rest was found in my stash. Despite all the details and layers, this page came together in under an hour thanks to great inspiration from Frosted Designs and Sketchabilities!!!! Gotta love that!
Anyway... that's my layout! The sun is shining and I'm off to enjoy it!! Thanks for stopping by!!
