And here is our second Sketch for the month of August!! 2 Sketches in one day..what a treat!!

Here is the layout the sketch was based on:

“Discover” Layout By Karen Shady

Materials Used:
Hunt and Gather patterned Paper Collection, Sticker Sheet.
Other: String, hessian, distress ink, paper distresser 

August’s #2 Sketch:

And now we have Svetlana and Pearl showing us their take on the sketch:

“Love To Travel” Layout by Pearl Lui

Materials Used:
Hunt & Gather Listen (P705), Sticker Sheet (SS107), Corrugated Cardboard Tags (EM963), Paper Pad (PP848); Rhinestone (RS402); Acrylic Paint in Spearmint (KC044)

Pearl says:
I love this sketch, but I decided to tilt the sketch 90 degrees counter-clockwise to better incorporate the technique and layout I had in mind. To create the frame around the photo, journaling label and corrugated tag cluster, I used a craft knife to cut around the pattern of the paper. I used the wood grain banner sticker that came with the Hunt & Gather sticker sheet – I love it! I added some rhinestones and hearts randomly on the pennants to enhance the wood grain pattern. To give the leafy vine sticker a slightly more turquoise tone and dewy look, I lightly brushed on spearmint acrylic paint around the edges of the leaves and added some clusters of rhinestones to it.

“Just Turned 5” Layout by Svetlana Austin

Materials Used:
Little Toot Collection: Paper – Bang/P687, Cruise/P691, Bumper/P692, Road Trip/PS155; Paper Pad/PP846; Clear Stamps – Date/CS787, Grunge Font/CS784; Foam Tape/T303; Alpha Chipboard – #2/CB108, #3/CB109.
Other: paint spray, craft paint, hand stitching, buttons, wax line, staples, ink, pen, “dimensional magic”.

Svetlana’s Tips:
I did cut the air-balloon and glued it on a piece of chip-board; I did the same with a couple of round die-cuts from the paper pad. Then I lifted all these elements with some foam tape to add dimension to my lay-out. I painted chip-board letters with red and blue craft paint and added some glossy volume to it with some “dimensional magic”. It goes very well with the glossy picture I used for my lay-out.

I hope you all have a great weekend..full of creating layouts from these 2 sketches!!

Pure velvet cards

June 10, 2011

Hi, today I wanted to share with you a card Ive made, using the beautiful Velvet Ensemble collection.

The rich vintage colours in this range are perfect for cards for all occasions. With a little distressing, and a little ink, you can achieve the perfect vintage look. The colours match perfectly with the rustic red of the Aubergine paper blooms.

To achieve the ‘rusty’ look on the bookplate, simply apply a black/gold glimmermist, then randomly add touches of antique gold metalic rubon.

 

‘Thankyou card‘ by Karen Shady

Materials used: Velvet ensemble collection patterned papers, Entertain (P676), Matinee (P672), Performance (P675), Paper pad (PP844), Rub ons (RB921), Paper blooms-Aubergine (F637), wooden flourish-bookplate (FL331), Rub on sentiments-thankyou, pearls-chocolate.  OTHER: string, border punch, leaf punch, distress ink, glimmermist, metallic rub on.
