ScrapFriends - Sketch Challenge #22 - DT

Hello everyone.

Today marks the first of the month and therefore a new sketch release at ScrapFriends. I hope you like it. It is the first sketch I have done.

My layout has the most recent photo of my children and myself - taken 2 years ago. I don't have many photos of us together, probably time to ask a friend to take another.

Loving gold at the moment. I dabbed gold paint through a stencil then added the glitter. Same with the heart chipboard. After, I sprayed with hairspray to fix the glitter.

This is a lot simpler in background texture and layers than I would normally do. I was trying to simplify my scrapping due to time constraints at the moment however I didn't really like it, because I like to do more detailed and involved work. So late last night before posting this challenge I added the background splatters digitally. I take photographs of all my layouts to print later on 12x12, so I shall only have the original without enhancement and the children will each have a print of this one in their folders.

Thank you for coming by. Hope you are able to play along this month. Make sure to go HERE to see all the amazing work of the Guest Designers and Design Team.
