Precious – Layout My Creative Sketches and PS DT challenge

The current sketch at My Creative Sketches is by Kim Keane and it is fabulous! It was so much fun to work with and there’s still time to create a layout and enter the challenge! Entries are due by Feb 14th at midnight EST. Here’s my take on it:


Pink Paislee Butterfly Garden pp, PP Butterfly Garden Clear Pops (dimensional butterfly stickers)
PP Butterfly Garden Baubles
Dusty Attic chipboard timepiece
Dusty Attick chipboard title
7 Gypsies loop and hook
key from my stash
Prima flowers
Prima vine
Prima butterfly
Prima pearl and lace trim
Button and Lace from my stash
Distress Inks
Liquid Pearls
acrylic paint


Helmar 2 step crackle
Helmar Quick Fix Adhesive Runner
Helmar 450 Quick Dry
Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots

The Kim Keane’s wonderful sketch:

The gorgeous Butterfly Garden papers by Pink Paislee and Dusty Attic chipboard pieces I used on this layout are currently available in the STTG Store HERE. Simply use the left hand navigation to click which products/manufacturers you’d like to browse. For my project, I altered the Dusty Attic chipboard pieces by whitewashing them with white acrylic paint. I then applied Helmar’s 2 step crackle. Once dry, I enhanced the cracks by inking with distress ink and wiping off the excess.

Be sure to stop by the Paper Secrets forum for the 5 new challenges for February too! This month, I am hosting the Vintage Stash Challenge. All you need to do to enter is use 5 out of the 10 items listed in the challenge thread on your paper based project and upload to the PS gallery with the tag “stash2” listed in the keywords. šŸ˜€
