Creative Scrappers - sketch #217

Hi everyone....just popping in quickly to share a layout I created for sketch #217 at Creative Scrappers.  As soon as I seen this sketch, I couldn't wait to give it a go....and knew that I just had to use some of my 2crafty chippies & a Lil Red Rocket spotty button on my layout.  And I just have to say that I love all of the DT layouts for this sketch....there's so much awesome inspiration!


Here is the sketch....






And here is my layout....


Using some My Minds Eye - Miss Caroline & Follow your heart papers, with some Prima packaging....AND the 2crafty chipboard, as previously mentioned.  I've used some of the 2crafty Iron Fence 12" border & a Vintage Key from one of the multi packs.   I have painted both pieces with a mixture of paint & mist, with some added sand for a great texture. Then I've wiped some gesso here and there with my finger...plus added a bit of black ink as well. I love the effect this has given :)




A close up of my cluster....that includes the Lil' Red Rocket fabric button <3





A close up of the 2crafty Iron Fence piece.....with the added sand texture, ink etc








And a better look at the Vintage Key....love how this turned out, such a great added vintage look! :)




For the background, I've used gesso with a Crafters Workshop 12x12 template -Tile Texture, and randomly misted with TA Glimmermist - Slate.

Photos are of the lighthouse at Hells Gate...which is at the entrance to Macquarie Harbour, near Strahan, on the west coast of Tasmania....that we got to go through on a Gordon River cruise, while were there earlier in the year.


Ok..that's all for now.
Thanks for dropping by & for any comments you may leave....they are really appreciated :)
