More HBS August DT work

For sketch #8 at Scrap Africa...

I had planned to save this layout & share it some time over the weekend, or early next week....because I thought the sketch challenge was open until the end of August.  But I've just realised that it's about to close.  Nothing like last minute & I guess it pays to read the fine print!!  lol

Here is the sketch...



I have turned the sketch 90 deg clockwise....and came up with this




Using Cosmo Cricket's Tea for Two range.
Rather than using a rectangle piece of paper behind the photo as per the sketch, I cut out all the little journal type frames from the Tea Tins PP and then layered them around & behind my photo.  The other papers used are Sugar Cubes & Tea Towel.



In my cluster I've used a white Manor House Creations flower that I've lightly misted in red...along with one of the Tea for Two cardstock stickers, a Lil' Red Rocket heart button & twine...that I've just sort of bunched up & around the white flower....plus a strip of Websters red ruffle trim across the bottom of the photo




Some journaling





And title.

The background I have misted using CW Chickenwire template ...then flicked some red GM around here & there, plus added some random bits of some really OLD Pink Paislee rubons.

Well...that's all folks. 
What a nightmare this post has been!  Blogger decided to not let me add any photos, so at the last minute I had to add them to flickr & then copy & paste them. 
Thank goodness I only just scraped in on time for the cutoff!

Happy weekend everyone

What a great photo and you have used the perfect range of papers and colours for it.
I thought of you today as I am trying to scrap a scenery photo and I am struggling. I even changed the photo to one of the kids but then went back to the scenery one as I am determined to do it....lol.

Oh gosh I can't stand it when Blogger goes all temperamental! Well done for making it!! I often do that too then fly in to post & that's when the darn thing won't work well. Love this layout & your really subtle masking & the random rub-ons - great idea!! You used the sketch really well too!!

Eila Sandberg said...

LOVE the red accents! this sure is really so beautiful Linda! what a neat take on the sketch. Totally love the itty bitty stamping/rub-ons and the fussy-cut shapes instead of a square page. Beautiful work as always sweetie! xoxo
