Scrapmaster's Paradise Sketch #2

I just loooooooved this sketch at Scrapmaster's Paradise, so I looked for two photos I could use with it, and this layout just blossomed from there! I was so excited with how it turned out, I ran over and showed my husband as soon as I was finished. I had a couple problems with completing it to my satisfaction, so I really had to use some creative muscle. I wanted silver photo mats, so I used a silver pen on white cardstock, but I guess it was kinda old, so I practically destroyed the tip trying to get all the silver out. I chucked the pen, then realized I wanted a silver mat for the journaling spot. Luckily I had an old silver ink pad, and it wasn't even dried up! So I swiped that on the edges of a white cardstock circle. The silver pen I used for my journaling was not cooperating, either, so I had to go over my printing a billion times to get it to show up. GGGRRRRR! But I'm extremely happy with how the glitter mist and stamping turned out. I even used a stamp that's supposed to be a leaf or petal and made it into water droplets. Pretty smart, eh?

Supplies (all CTMH): White Daisy cardstock, Felicity My Acrylix stamp set, Exclusive Inks stamp pad in Hollyhock

Other: Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Silver Sugar and Viva Pink, Heidi Swapp journaling spot, Creative Memories silver fine tip pen, Avery broad tip silver marker, Encore silver ink pad

P.S. - This is layout #34 of 120 for the year

  2. It's gorgeous Rox!! All of your hard work paid off!!! I love what you did with the paint/glimmermist. I'm going to have to add this sketch to my list of layouts I want to do.
