I haven’t done a sketch challenge at MME for such a long time. I saw it on their blog today and just fell in love with the sketch.
I went and dug up some MME papers from my stash and got to work on this layout.
I started by mimicking the square pattern of the sketch using a CW mask. However after adding papers and embellishments, I sadly covered almost the whole squared pattern. There is some of it left around the edges which I sprayed with Shimmerz: Tuscan Sun and Cotton Candy. But you can’t really see the pattern in the center.
I just ordered some new Shimmerz sprays including Tuscan Sun. I have to say that I’m in love with this shade of yellow. I’m not a huge fan of yellow, but this shade is just gorgeous. The name makes me want to actually go to Italy.
I use Shimmerz a lot on my projects and I really recommend them because they are light and shimmery. They are made for those people who are sometimes afraid to spray because theya re scared they will ruin a page. They are so light, almost translucent and do not overpower in color.
I want to remind you guys again that if you want to buy some Shimmerz make sure you mention me when you check out. You will receive a free “Sample sized” Texturez or Dazzlerz product and you can even choose the color.
All you have to do is mention my name at the “Instructions to Merchant” during checkout. Make sure you specify which of product you want to receive for free.
Trust me you will not regret trying these. They are amazing!!
I have to tell you a little bit about this picture. When I took it, my heart almost melted with joy. It was such a tender moment which happens seldom, as my kids constantly bicker with each other. However on this particular day, my DD happened to get hurt and guess who came to the rescue. My amazing son sat down and hugged her. I was so lucky to have had my iphone handy and just snapped this photo.
I added some hidden journaling behind the photo.
I really hope my kids will always be there for each other the way my sisters and I are there for each other. I know they fight a lot now, but I know that will change.
I did a lot of fussy cutting from the MME papers and I used some matching Prima flowers and bling.
