Paper Stories February sketch...

Hi there lovelies...hope everyone is well & enjoying the start of another new week :)

Just popping in quickly tonight to share my layout for Paper Stories Feb sketch....using a kit I bought from Paper Stories many months ago (I seem to have quite a few in my stash that I'm still slowly trying to use up!)....the kit contains 7Gypsies Postale papers (I can't remember the name of the kit)...plus I've added things from my stash & also used some 2crafty chipboard.

here is my take on the sketch....



 
 
And here is the sketch....
 
 
 
 
I've had a play with that mesh tape again...this time cutting it into thinner strips & colouring it with glimmermist.  I've also used more Green Tara flowers that I won from the gorgeous Eila Sandberg...the big white one & the smaller caramel coloured one....thanks again Eila!!!
 
 
 
And another of Eila's flowers <3  plus some 2crafty chippie pieces....a scrap negative leftover piece from the clock face frames...a little ATC flourish  and a tiny Henri's frame tucked there into my cluster
(please ignore my pencilled journaling that I've just noticed I haven't rubbed out...lol!)
 
 
 
And some more 2crafty....this time one of the Compass' from the compass set...and one of the little Gears.
 
 
 
and here at the top is another little ATC flourish
 
 
 
The photos are from when we went to Blackheath in October & it snowed!!
This chuch looked so beautiful with the grounds all covered in snow.
 
 
 
Hopefully you can get a better idea of the mesh in the background in this shot.
 
 
ok, that's all folks....thanks so much for visiting my lil ol blog :)
Have a good one...xx
