Last 2 dt projects for Paper Secrets January Challenges

Joyce is hosting the Paper Secrets Card Sketch Challenge this month and has provided a wonderful sketch for us! For my example, I used some Webster’s Pages Winter Fairy Tales scraps from a layout I made a couple of months ago and a bit of 6×6 pp from the same line. A touch of distress ink helps give the layers some definition and Helmar foam Zap Dots give the central image some lift. I fussy cut the butterflies and adhered them using Helmar’s Acid Free Glue and the sheer WP trim is attached with 450 Quick Dry. I topped off my bow with a WP chipboard button with twine tied to it (Jillibean Soup…left over from my Tres Chic Unique kit). Here’s what I came up with:

This month, Kimmy is hosting the Scraplift Challenge and selected Michelle Hernandez as our featured artist to lift (with her permission). You can browse Michelle’s Flickr Gallery and select any piece of hers that inspires you. 😀

For my example, I actually used a Creative Scrappers sketch and paired it with one of her layouts as inspiration. I then switched the journaling placement and banner location from hers to match the sketch better. Though it was already on my blog a few posts ago, this is the layout I created for this challenge:
