Cookies - SSIB

Hello everyone! Today is my reveal day over at SSIB ScrapStuffz and we are doing something different for this month. A fun challenge with a sketch and a twist!

Our DT Adele provided us beautiful sketch to work with. Check this out!

Isn't it great! With multiple photos too!

And for the twist?  Use a handmade/homemade die cut on your project.  Additional points to be given if you use one of Stacia’s die cut pieces. You can find some of Stacia’s awesome project HERE.

For my reveal, I used  Stacia’s “GIRL SCOUT COOKIES” file.

I decided to rotate the sketch to match with my photos.

I thought of using circles stencils in place of hexagon to coordinate my subject. And finally use enamel dots around “COOKIES” title like the smarties!

#bikeride - LCOM#83

LCOM Let’s Capture Our Memories offer another beautiful sketch this week by Ana Castro.

Honestly, I freaked out the first time I saw the sketch. I really don’t know what to do about the white spaces and big photo part. But I think I fairly pulled it off, I am pleased how it turned out.

turned the photo into black and white and print using 8.5 x 11” vellum
cut silhouette "heart boxes" and use it as a frame
love adding vellum, it gives more interest

molding paste, stamps and inkspray for playful background
