Home and Scrapped March Sketch

Hello all!

We're practically buried with the (over a foot) of snow we received last night.
Hopefully the saying is true that snow late in the season helps melt the old snow.  Counting on that!
I am SO ready for Summer!  Forget Spring... that's only snowy weather around these parts... I want SUMMER!

Anyhow... here's a layout I completed for Home and Scrapped... and challenge site on FB.
Absolutely love Heather's sketches!  :)
Be sure to check out the site... ask to join... and scrap away!  There are other fun challenges there too, so do a search for Home and Scrapped and take a look around.

This layout is titled, "Europe"
This was our view walking along the river at Bayeux France.  It was so beautiful and peaceful!

Gesso was used on the background.  The lines were created using a piece of cardstock dipped in Gesso.

The cluster of embellies on a tag.  Gold and white lace as well as twine was tied at the top of the tag.

A closer look at the background.  The Gesso was watered down to thin it out for the background.

The cluster of flowers.  I made a couple of them and added mists and Stickles for some shine.

A closer look.  Bling is under the flowers and "toned down" by rubbing some metallic watercolor on them.

Stickles really pop the flowers and make them sparkle!

A closer look at the tag.  Stamp stickers were added under the title.

A strip of lace was tucked under the right side of the photo with thin ribbon threaded through the holes.  And more lace was tucked under the pp.

A single flower and a gold glittery star are added above the tag.

I doubled this butterfly for more dimension.

And here's the fun March Sketch:

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Till next time,
