***Sketch Challenge at Swirlydoos Kit Club***

"Hello" crafty friends!

Another day and another layout. :)

Today I want to share with you my layout for the sketch challenge at Swirlydoos Kit Club.

I am loving the sketches that Kim is creating for the Swirlydoos monthly sketch challenges and I particularly enjoyed the design of this one!

My layout as been created with 98%  products from previous  Swirlydoos Kit club  Kits.


Here is my layout .......




and now to show you the sketch....





So as you can see I have used a oblong frame rather then an oval frame. This wooden frame from a previous swirlydoos kit was simply painted with a couple of coats of gesso.




In the top right hand corner of the sketch there is a small frame. the one I added to my layout is made with a Martha Stewart mould with Ice Resin, the Ice Resin is also from a previous Technique it Add on kit from Swirlydoos.




The brick work I created with a Stencil and my favourite Distress Grit paste.
I also used a Finnabair small background clear stamp, crackle effect in my background, painted the stamp gently with gesso and stamped with it to get the white crackle over the background. I then splattered over the background with some black acrylic paint.




The title is a Heidi Swapp acetate word. I used a clear glue to adhere this to the page, just adding a dot of the glue on the extreme edges of the word.




My two beautiful focal point flowers are by EK Success. They have a very pretty floral print which had all the colours on them that I was using on my layout. I mixed these in with some Petaloo black burlp flowers.




The only items used on this layout that are not from a previous Swirlydoos kit are the dusky blue paper roses and the pale sky blue apple blossoms flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.
The quote in the small frame I cut out from a card in the Collectables pack and glued  to back of the frame.




I used some seed beeds to add a  different type of texture and a high light colour. These are stuck to the layout using gel medium.





The finishing touch in the flower clusters are the very delicate Butterfly laser cuts from BoBunny. These I left untreated and poked them into the flower layers.
