Some sketch layouts

Another layout for the Lightning Ridge album... this one is based on the May sketch at C'est Magnifique:

I used a mixed media background, which I fortuitously created on a recycled kraft envelope.  The envelope started out as a spatter-guard while I was misting a chipboard shape, and some time later I used the same piece to 'stamp off' the excess gesso from a stencil before wiping it down.  I ended up with something that was kind of pretty in a random sort of way, and I put it aside for "later use".

My title is hand-drawn and cut from a thick piece of watercolour paper.

I'd like to submit this layout at Clique Kits for the Anything Goes theme.

Ranger Dylusions - Squeezed Orange ink spray
CTW Balzer Designs - Mini Art Deco Leaves 6x6 stencil
Cr8tiv alphabet stickers
Portacraft foam glitter stickers


This layout is for the winter 2014 mini-break album, based on a sketch from Blue Fern Studios:

I used some BFS Turkish Bits chipboard, which I painted with gesso and acrylic paint.

I am submitting this layout at Simon Says Wednesday Challenge for the Anything Goes theme, and for Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge for the Flowers theme.

Other materials:
Crate Paper Maggie Holmes - Click patterned paper
Manor House Minuettes - Pink Mix paper flowers
Prima Esprit - Blue blue flowers
Kaisercolour Coastal Blue acrylic paint
Studio Girl Rembrandt's Words 6x6 stencil
Resin shapes

Thank you for visiting my blog!


  1. Love both these layouts. Love that you used a Kraft card that had been used for splatters etc, it is great to put them aside and then the perfect fit turns up for them. Also your "Almost There" page is fabulous. I love your titles. Thanks for sharing at AFSC

  2. Both gorgeous layouts, your photo of the blue scheme is fabulous with a great design and wonderfully embellished!!
