Life’s Journey- C’est Magnifique Sketch for June’s Kit

For the 2 Crafty Blog Hop press Here
This is my layout for the June sketch challenge at C’est Magnifique!! It is also my last layout not only for the June Kit but also for my term at this amazing kit club.
I had an amazing time designing for C’est Magnfique and I want to thank Leslie for the opportunity she gave me for the past 6 months!!
Here is my layout:
I really wanted to make a masculine layout with the blue toned papers of the kit. This is a picture of my son last year just chilling on a ledge. I’ve wanted to scrap this picture for a while and I finally got the chance!!

I created a rough background by stamping some of my BoBunny stamps in brown. Then I added all the elements on the page.

This is how I made the Blue Fern Hot air balloon:
First I primed it with gesso. Then using some gel medium I masked one of the Prima stencils on it. It created a raised pattern on the balloon. Once it was dry, I inked it in Pastel Blue fluid chalk ink by Ingvild Bolme from Prima. Finally I use a little of the dark bark fluid chalk ink to rub on the raised areas.

I hope you get to join us in the challenge this month!!

    I wish to show my appreciation to the writer just for rescuing me from this particular setting. Right after surfing around throughout the world wide web and getting ways that were not productive, I thought my entire life was over. Existing without the presence of strategies to the issues you have sorted out as a result of your good short post is a crucial case, as well as those which may have badly affected my entire career if I had not encountered the website. Your capability and kindness in playing with every aspect was crucial. I am not sure what I would’ve done if I had not come across such a stuff like this. I can also now relish my future. Thanks so much for your expert and results-oriented help. I won’t think twice to refer your blog post to any person who should have guidelines on this subject.
