Tea for Two + 2crafty + C'est Magnifique August sketch....

Hello again everyone...I'm back again to share another layout I've created using my August DT kit from Handmade by Suzanne, which features Cosmo Cricket's "Tea for Two" papers & embellishments plus some 2crafty chipboard.

I've created my layout based on the August sketch at C'est Magnifique...




And here is my layout....again, nothing to do with tea! 
Which shows just how versatile this fab range is...you can create just about any themed layout with it!



Inside the Penitentiary ruins - Using Rose Petal Jam PP as my background, with some CW mini bricks template work using texture paste mixed with Mr Huey's Pumpkin spice mist....with a few punched strips of Butter & Cup & Saucer PP's.


The 2crafty chipboard piece is one of the Ruby's Swirls that I have cut into a few pieces & arranged at different angles to suit the sketch & cluster.  It has been gesso'd, then misted in a few different coloured mists to give a bit of a mottled rustic effect.


Here you can see the photos of inside the ruins a bit better...and my cluster using Manor House Creations & Prima flowers....and also one of the stickers from the Stacked Sticker pack.


 
A close up of the mini bricks template work.

That's all I have to share for now.
Thanks so much for dropping by....enjoy the rest of your day!  xx
