Taste Of Happiness

Hello everyone, it's me again. I made this page last night and I am so happy how it turned out. Inspired by LIFE PAPER SCRAPBOOK August Sketch Challenge. 
Also for August Inspired By Challenge #2 at Scrappin Peeps by Sandy. Please click HERE to see the inspiration photo.
Inspired by old book pages and twine. I used cheesecloth to add texture.
Supplies :
  • patterned paper - MME
  • twine - Michaels
  • flowers - Bazzil and Recollection
  • feather - from Hope, thanks!
  • pleated papers - Bazzil
  • alphas - Prima and Pebbles
  • others - cheesecloth, pages from old books - burnt the edge

So Delightful

I never thought I will have so much fun again using watercolors, thanks to PLS (Paper Lover Studio) for their Inspired By Challenge #5 . Here is the inspiration photo.

I am inspired by the watercolor background. I started with light patterned paper and used Heidi Swapp stencil, everything is watercolored even the drippings.
This is also for Laurie's Weekly Challenge over at Scrappin Peeps. The challenge is to scraplift yourself. Pick a LO that you love and duplicate it. Can lift the design, colors or some specific elements. And I have this digital page from last year, sketch by Ms. Ashley Horton please click HERE  to see more of her sketches and creations. I love all her sketches and she is one big reason why I fell inlove making sketches. Thanks Ashley!!

  • cardstock - DCWV
  • watercolor - Crayola
  • stencil - Heidi Swapp
  • chipboard - MME, thanks Laurie

At The Beach

 SSIB ScrapStuffz Inspired By Challenge , offer another great inspiration photo for us to work with. This month image screams SUMMER! Please see below image.
And today is my reveal!  I really love this inspiration photo, love the scenery and the colors. Perfect for Rowan's photo at Dominican Republic, Summer 2012.
I used light patterned paper for my background so it's easy for me to play and manipulate the rest of the color.  Layered 4 x 6 paper with stencil and splatter to matte the photo.
To mimic the sand, I inked abaca fiber and layered it with surgical gauze.

                               randomly pull it to obtain ruffled look
Cluster of flowers in blue and pink shades was inspired by the chair color. Adding twine, shells and beach glass complement each other.
