My Creative Sketches June

Another post, another sketch!  This time a really cool one over at My Creative Sketches, I love the options in this, you could use one photo, three photos...whatever!  The sketch looks like this...

My take, a photo of my friend Nic & I out for dinner, just one of those selfies for Facebook, not a great shot and a bit blurry but still a memory!

Smile - Using the Basic Grey Aurora range plus some old chipboard & washi out of my stash, a flair button, Prima flower and the awesome new Prima Cling Stamp that I borrowed from Kel at retreat, its called Spills and I've just ordered my own from The Scrappery which should arrive soon, lucky I got in quick as they are now sold out on the site!

(Basic Grey Aurora papers and stickers, American Crafts embellishments, cabachon,
flair, washi tape, Prima stamp, StazOn ink, Prima flower)

A closeup of my cluster and journalling plus that gorgeous stamp...

(cabachon, flair, washi tape, Prima stamp, StazOn ink, Prima flower)

Some texture paste through a TCW template then stamped over the top...

Let's Get Sketchy June Week 2

The second sketch released for June over at Let's Get Sketchy looked like this...

I See The Light - a couple of recent photos of Georgia in her modern costume, she has had this routine for over 12 months now but its only just seemed to click the last two times she has performed it, placing 2nd both times in super tough sections with lots of very talented Sydney kids. This is another layout created from the January TSK Kit from The Scrappery called Cleo, and another gelato background I prepared earlier.

(American Crafts papers, alpha & ephemera, Prima flowers, twine, washi, gelatos)

(American Craft ephemera, diecut tag, Studio Calico alpha, Prima flower, twine)

I'm pretty sure this cute little butterfly was a handmade one by my Mum :)

I am off work this week on holidays with the kids, running back and forth to the Illawarra Performing Arts Centre  for Wollongong Eisteddfod.  I have planned to get some scrapping done in between sessions but so far we are halfway through the week and I haven't even looked like pulling out my stuff!  Will try again tonight!
