SKETCHABILITIES DESIGN TEAM REVEAL - SKETCH #88




http://sketchabilities.blogspot.co.uk/
HAPPY EASTER everyone and welcome to SKETCHABILITIES design team reveal sketch # 88.

I hope you visit all the designers blogs for lots of inspiration.

These photos are from our day out Prom Dress shopping.

This is how I made my layout.
I matted my photos in pink and distressed the edges.
I cut a circle from cardboard and painted it with pink and gold acrylic paint.
I then cut down some pretty brown paper to 11x11 inches and distressed the edges.
I cut down a pretty pink paper to 10.5 x 10.5 inches and distressed the edges.
I adhered these two layers onto my background cardstock.
I added my cardboard circle.
I then used some hot glue to attach my tulle ruffle and pearl strip all around the edge of the circle.
I attached my matted photos.
I made lots of pink flowers from mulberry paper.
See tutorial http://theprettypaperpatisserie.blogspot.co.uk/2013/03/hand-made-flowers-tutorial.html .
 Then I made a concertina pink flower.
I made a small pink stick/hat pin from glass beads.
I added some lace and glued some flat back pearls across the centre.
I added my flowers, leaves and some cream funky fibres.
I added some mini roses and the beaded pin.
I then found a little journaling box that I folded in half to put some journaling inside.
I painted some texture paste onto my flowers to soften them a little and stamped the two opposite corners and added some more mini roses.
Last but not least I added my title.
I hope you like it and give it a go.
Happy scrapping everyone and enjoy the reveal.
