The Scrapbook Store - April Sketch Challenge

I found a new sketch challenge on my travels around the web, and loved the sketch, done by Nadia Cannizzo at The Scrapbook Store, so had to enter.  One has to register to post a photo, but the the gallery is open to the public.

Here is the sketch:

And my version:

 And a few close-ups:

Supplies used: Paper: My Mind's Eye (background), October Afternoon, Kaisercraft, 7Gypsies; Punches: Martha Stewart, EKSuccess; Die-Cuts: Magnolia Ink, Spellbinders, Sihouette, Cheery Lyn Doilies; Elements: Prima-flowers, pebble, stamp; Kaisercraft-chipboard, flowers, gemstones, stamps; Tattered Angels-mask; Zing embossing powder; acrylic paint, Luminarte Twinkling H2O's, gesso, texture paste, stitching.

The chipboard I had painted with Jo Sonja's 'Warm White' then mixed some with some texture paste and added it to the frame here and there before sprinkling on some Zing embossing powder in 'Brown Sugar' before heat setting. I love the effect this gives.

My use of the twinkling H2O's  is very subtle on the layout. I have had a selection of these gorgeous little tubs sitting in my drawers for about 6 months and was reminded of them when I saw some of Georgia Heald's more recent layouts. I love the glimmer they give.

Thankyou for coming by!

  1. Zeneva this is so pretty and soft, I really love it, there's so much dimension with the layers and the soft misted stencil works a treat.


Thankyou so much for taking the time to leave a comment. I read every one of them and it always warms my heart. Have a great day!
