I'm back to share another layout using my July DT kit from Handmade by Suzanne - Websters Pages - Palm Beach range....and I've also used some 2crafty chipboard & some Lil' Red Rocket embellishments.
Suzanne was kind enough to let me use my 2crafty goodies that I received in my DT kit, along with my Handmade by Suzanne DT kit....so a huge thank you to Suzanne! :) xx
And even though my DT term with 2crafty doesn't start until 1st August....Vanessa wants us to jump right in & start using our goodies. So who am I to argue with that?!? LOL
So I decided to team all of these products with this months sketch challenge at Once Upon a Sketch...and the theme is "Friend"
Here is the sketch...created by Nadia Cannizzo......
And here is my take on it....
For this layout I've used the pink coloured papers from the Palm Beach range.....and I've pretty much gesso'd it all over (it wasn't originally intentional, it was to cover up the major goof that I made & what looked totally awful ....but now I LOVE it!! Go figure! LOL).
For the centre paper's background, I used a CW template & some texture paste -which didn't end so well...lol...and hence the gesso treatment over the entire piece - but you can still see the template work & I love the look of these papers like this with the gesso all over them...it really gives it a real whitewashed look <3. The pink papers in this range truly are g.o.r.g.e.o.u.s! Even when they're not gesso'd!!
As mentioned before, I've also used a few pieces of 2crafty chipboard on my layout....
Including this gorgeous corner flourish - Elegant corner set, which comes in a set of 2.For some added texture, I've added some sand (yes, real sand) to some gesso & painted it on...then I've lightly inked the edges & added some light pink pearls :)
Lil' Red Rocket fabric button that also got the gesso treatment.
My title...and yep, he is!
Here you can just see the chandelier, at the left side of the photo, that I fussy cut from the Palm Beach - Sunset paper. You can also see one of the fabric tickets sticking out from under the photo, on top of the chandelier, which I've lined the back of with some pp & it has my journaling on it.
And some more 2crafty chipboard....from the Flourish 2 set - which comes in a pack of 10!!
Which has also received the same sand texture treatment :)
Well, I'd best get a move on....always a million things to do on a Sunday night!
