Lets Get Sketchy DT Reveal

Hi everyone, it is another week - and it will be Christmas before we know it.  This week it is time for another reveal at Lets Get Sketchy.  This weeks sketch is by Brenshevia and I have done a layout of my gorgeous red heeler Ruby:

She was such a cute puppy!!  She is now 5 years old :)

Here is a copy of this weeks sketch:

I have used Prima paper from the Timeless Memories collection.  On the background I have used a Memory Box stencil - Rings and Puddles with Art Anthology Dimensional paint in Leaf colour as well as a kaisercraft stamp and black ink and the same stamp with Embossing enamel from Pipe Dreamink "Opals Mango".  The white rings are a die cut - Memory Box "Loops Rings' and the edge stamp is from EK Success.

Here is a couple of close ups:

Well thats all from me today, but dont forget to have a look at the other Design Team's layouts and have a go at this weeks sketch.  You can find the link here

Til next time - Happy Crafting :)

This month Scrap Around the World and Lindy Stamp Gang have awesome challenges and I have created one layout for them both.  This photo, taken by my son, is of graffiti in Melbourne.

I have used paper from the Graphic 45 Typography Collection.  The first layer is white crackle paste and a Donna Downey stencil.  I then used dimensional magic and micro beads around the area of the stencil.  Once dried I have used Lindy Stamp Gang Sprays - Prima Donna Purple, Hi Maintenance Magenta, Sassy Sapphire and Bling-y Blonde for colour and splashes.

I then applied stamps from Kaisercraft and Tim Holtz.  The prima fringe was coloured with Lindy Stamp Gang Hi Maintenance Purple, and final touches include a couple of flowers and Prima Mechanicals and a few white splashes.

Here are some close ups:

this is the moodboard from Scrap Around the World, designed by Heather McMahon:

I took inspiration from the colours in these awesome photos.

Where on earth has this year gone.  I had so much planned and so little achieved!  But it is a new week and a new reveal at Lets Get Sketchy and here is my take:

This is a photo of an old cabin in Tasmania that was unfortunately burnt down a few years ago.

Here is this weeks sketch

I have used Bella Paper "Something Blue"  for my background.  Loved this paper so I didnt want to change it too much.   I have used a Tim Holtz "on the edge" die cut which I embossed with Stampendous Shabby Green embossing enamel.  The bird house is an Impression Obsession die cut and the trees a Memory Box Leafy Branch die cut.  The corrugated board (from a diet coke box) has been inked with Tim Holtz Walnut Stain distress ink.

Here are some close ups:

Thanks for stopping by and I hope that you find the time to have a go this week.  Here is a link to the Lets Get Sketchy blog here for more inspiration from the other design team members.

Til next time - happy crafting :)
