GDT for Lets Get Sketchy

Happy Monday everyone! Right now I have been on vacation since Thursday. I will be back to work on Tuesday night. I enjoyed a Great weekend in Pittsburgh at the Sweet Retreat with some Wonderful Ladies! I will share some photos later in the week.

My new exciting news for this week is that I am Guest Designer at Lets Get Sketchy for the month of June! I am so excited since this is my first time doing anything like this. I always try to do their weekly sketches but their are times when life gets in the way. Their sketches always help me get my layouts done much faster.

Here is the first sketch for June.

Here is my layout



 Green, Yellow & Pink flowers

Fabric Flowers
Ivory Leaf
Tiny Alphas
Washi Tape

Paper Studio
Beaded Wire Garland

Wedding Kit

Ranger Distress Inks
Tattered Rose
Picked Raspberry
Squeezed Lemondae
Faded Jeans

Adirondack Alcohol Ink
Sailboat Blue

I punched a 2" scallop & inked it with Distress Ink. I added some washi tape to one of the banners & inked the other. I also inked the chipboard piece. It was all white & seemed to be a kind of resist. The striped rectangular paper was inked to give the white a little more color along with the scalloped border & patterned paper.

I applied liquid glue to the beaded garland to make it stay in place & shaped it to look like a circle.
I punched out every other fan on the border. I applied alcohol ink to the white fabric flower & button. Alcohol ink is suppose to be used on non-porus surfaces but it worked out quite well on the fabric flower.

Hope everyone had a Great Weekend!
Happy Scrappin!
