Hi everyone and welcome to the Stuck On U Sketches Design Team Sketch Reveal.
If you love sketches then you will love this. Lots to play with here.
HOW I PUT THIS LAYOUT TOGETHER
First of all choose your photos and then your colours.
Put together your cardstock and papers and embellishments.
Cut down a white sheet of cardstock to 11.5 x 11.5 inches and distress the edges.
Adhere to your background cardstock.
Cut two circles out of contrasting card and distress the edges. (I used a couple of plates for this).
Matt your photos and distress the edges.
Adhere to the circles and add a half inch border across the page.
Now to embellish.
I used pearl string for my circles. I cut out small circles in cardstock and glued the string on top using a glue gun.
I then made some mulberry paper flowers and used the glue gun go attach.
I added some small roses, funky fibres, a prima velvet leaf and two of my handmade butterflies with beaded bodies.
I also added some white hessian/burlap and some larger pearls.
Why not give it a go.

Large sticky back pearls
Prima white velvet leaf

Butterflies and beads for bodies.

Morning lovely scrappers.
For todays layout I have used inspiration from Berry 71 Bleu - August challenge - to use textiles.
No sketch for this one, I just winged it!
For this layout I applied Gesso all over my background cardstock to dull it down a little to give more of a vintage feel. I also misted the background with some tattered angels mists.
I then matted my photo and adhered to my cardstock.
I started adding my layers, starting with the large doily.
Next I added some cardboard that I painted white.
I added another doily with green backing card.
For my textiles I made a hessian/burlap flower, a bow in hessian/burlap, and a piece of cotton seam binding that I sprayed with glimmer mist and ruched and attached with hot glue.
Then I added in a few extra layers that I inked and used some alphas for the title.
I added a metal button for my flower centre and decorated with assorted flowers and butterflies.

Butterflies and beads
Websters pages alphabet stickers.
I hope you like it.

here is a layout I have done using the C'EST MAGNIFIQUE sketch challenge for August.
For this layout I chose to change the photo into black and white as all the colours were very mixed and very busy. I used pink, soft golden yellow and brown with some white as I wanted a girly feel.
THIS IS WHAT I DID
I cut down a piece of white cardstock to 11.5x11.5 inches and sprayed and speckled with mists in gold, pink and copper.
I attached to a sheet of brown cardstock.
I then matted my photo in white, pink and some brown card.
I attached this to my background card and added a doily in one corner.
I then made my title banner and adhered.
I then started to decorate with assorted flowers, leaves, mini roses, pearl strands, butterflies with beaded bodies and an angel I made from clay using a mould.
I hope you like it and check out the challenge.
Have a great day, Bye For Now.

Hi everyone, I saw this sketch with SKETCHES WITH A TWIST and http://showusyourstuff.blogspot.com.au/2013/08/august-challenge.html
I thought this was a brilliant sketch so decided to give it a go.
Just click on the link above to take you to the challenge.
I turned the sketch on its side. The twist is to use a safety pin which I have used to attach my title block.
I HAVE ALSO DONE A TUTORIAL BUILD A PAGE FOR YOU.
I have entered this in to C.S.I and the special Scrap 365 August challenge.
So many challenges, so little time!!! I usually only enter one at a time, so have gone a bit mad with this one!! I loved the colour combo at C.S.I and knew it would fit my photo perfectly. It just so happens that both the sketch and the colour scheme were doubled up this month. Just scroll down for the BUILD A PAGE to see how to put a page together using this sketch in ten easy steps.

Hi everyone, hope you are having an awesome summer.
I have been meaning to do a mixed media shabby chic canvas for a while, and here it is.
I bought a 12x12 canvas and reversed it.
I painted all the edges with gesso and started applying loads of texture. I added muslin to all the edges, then lace and kept adding more gesso. When this had dried I added flowers, butterflies, die cut chipboard keys, locks, branches etc and painted all with gesso and fine texture paste. I then sprayed everything in three colours of glimmer mist. I decorated a 12x12 page with doilies, flowers and funky fibres. I glued this to the centre of the canvas back.
I have entered this in to a challenge at http://berry71bleu.blogspot.co.uk/ - using textiles - August challenge.
Also flying unicorn challenge for mixed media, you can find here http://flyingunicornforums.com/.
Hope you like it.
Bye for now.

Morning all and happy Friday. Here is a layout I have just finished for a sketch challenge over at Inkido http://inkido.blogspot.co.uk/2013/08/august-challenge-augusti-utmaning.html just click on this link if you want to give it a go. I have also combined this sketch with The Color Room #156 for my colour combo. You can find it here http://www.thecolorrooms.com/index.html
For this layout I wanted to keep things looking a little bit heritage because of the photo.
This is what I did.
First I cut down a piece of pretty pink paper to 11x11 inches and distressed the edges.
I then set about distressing the background. I used mists that I sprayed, flicked and dabbed with a kitchen towel in three different colours and allowed to dry.
I then went over this with a sponge and a pink Pan Pastel to give a delicate pink hue.
I then chose my background cardstock to co ordinate with my picture. I adhered my paper to this.
I then matted my photo in the same cardstock and distressed the edges.
I cut out the border strips from the same cardstock and some script paper and adhered these.
I added some white pen to the edges.
I then started to decorate with flowers and shells using a glue gun.
I used alpha stickers for the title.
Why not give it a go.

Distress tool by Prima
Alpha stickers by Basic Grey

Hi everyone and welcome to the Stuck On U Sketches Design Team Reveal.
I hope you are having a great Summer and are taking lots of photos to scrap.
For this reveal I have used this great sketch by Leah, which I hope inspires you to have a go.
For my layout I have taken a pretty pink patterned paper and cut it down to 11.5x11.5 inches and distressed the edges.
I adhered this to a plain piece of pink cardstock.
I then took another piece of the same cardstock and cut it down to 5.5 x 11 inches and distressed the edges and adhered this down the side.
I matted my photo in some script paper and distressed the edges.
I attached this to the pink cardstock and added two small doilies, one at the top and one at the base.
I added a small Prima journaling box under the photo.
I then added a circle in pink to the side.
I attached some white scalloped lace to the circle.
I added a smaller pink circle on top.
I attached some fibre to the small circle.
I attached some pink velvet ribbon down the side panel.
I added some honeycomb chipboard that I painted white.
I then started to decorate with my flowers and butterflies.
I also added some fuzzy fibres and the title.
I hope you like it and give it a go.
Don't forget to stop off at all the designers blogs for more inspiration.
