Let's Get Sketchy mid month challenge

Hello all, 

Here we are with the mid month challenge at Let's Get Sketchy!

We have a lovely sketch for you!


Here is my DT layout interpretation of the sketch.




And here is the sketch............





Here are a few close ups of my layout.




I have used papers from a baby collection by First Edition called 'It's a Girl'!
These are the most adorable papers with the cutest designs! 




I distressed my edges and added lace here and there and a doily to add the shabby chic look. 




I used Prima flowers and some die cut flowers mixed in around the Wycinanka chipboard heart background, that I cut into pieces and used I different places around the layout. 




I used my Prima Metallics semi watercolour cake set with water to create a wash to paint around the main design of the layout, blending it so as not to have abrupt lines and to keep the it looking soft.





I added pieces of cheeseclothe poked into layers which also soften the design.
I have layered two thicknesses and colours of ribbons and then wrapped and tied them around the one oblong paper layer. 




Small details like the peg, shabby wooden hearts and the straw all add to the cute shabby chic feel.




The baby theme was continued with the cute charms added around the layout.




My journaling is on the back of a tag which slots into the side of my layers behind the photo. 
Below is the tag the other way round when it is slotted back into the layout.
