Camping in the Living Room – dt layout for Let’s Capture These Sketches #127

For Let’s Capture These Sketches #127 I got to work with a fabulous Natalie Roy sketch. For my take on it, I decided to break out my stamps and inks and make my own background. Lately I’ve been craving time to do some art journaling, so I think that influenced where I took the layout. Unfortunately, when I went to take a pic of it though, my photos all came out looking either washed out or too dark. Direct sunlight = washed out and indirect sunlight = dark. I settled for a pic I took of it taped to the refrigerator! lol The glare on the left of photo on the tent is from the kitchen window, not my flash. Here’s what I came up with:

Materials:

AC white cardstock
Distress Ink
Pitt Artist Pen
Stazon Ink
Fancy Pants stamps
Pink Paislee wood alphas
Dusty Attic Grass Cluster #1 (from the STTG Store)
Acrylic paint
OA mini market alpha stickers
Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist

Adhesives:

Helmar Premium Craft Glue

This is Natalie’s awesome sketch:

Love Birds – dt layout for Let’s Capture These Sketches #119

For my example for the Let’s Capture These Sketches #119 by Natalie Roy, I went with photos of the birds that nest on our porch each year. These were taken Sept 2010. I’ve only taken pictures of them twice but they have visited us every year we’ve lived here (7 years). I’ve only scrapped one page of them before (layout was titled Love Nest) and still have a couple more pics to scrap, including shots of them feeding their babies. 😀

Here’s my take on Natalie’s awesome sketch:

Materials:

Pink Paislee Mistables pp
Prima flowers
Dusty Attic chipboard Feather
Dusty Attic chipboard Birds on a Branch
Tim Holtz tissue tape
Maya Road decorative edge envelope
Tim Holtz tissue paper
Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist
Distress Ink

Adhesives:

Helmar 450 Quick Dry
Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots
Helmar Premium Craft Glue

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. 😀

Genuine Beauty – dt layout for LCTS sketch #117

This week at Let’s Capture These Sketches, we got to work with JJ’s first sketch for the site and I had a lot of fun with it! I used Pink Paislee’s Vintage Vogue papers and let Madison pick out the bg paper she wanted. 😀 The pp, chipboard stickers, diecuts, spool tops are all from the Vintage Vogue collection. The only item I added was a few bits of twine from the Twinery. Here’s my example for the sketch:

This is the fantastic sketch JJ came up with for this week’s challenge (sketch #117):
