Yesterday saw a new reveal go up at Sketchabilities for
Sketch 68, the last sketch of my 6 month term there, so
it is goodbye and thank you to Karan for a great time there!
I got myself into a bit of a muddle this month & used this
beautiful sketch to create my layout for Les Papiers de Pandore
HERE - then got my posting dates wrong and it went live
before the reveal so I created a new layout as seen below.
You can see all the details for the other one posted
a few posts down HERE and it's also up on the
Sketchabilities blog aswell.
I am entering this at C'est Magnifique in their packaging
challenge as I have used Webster's and Prima
packaging as well as Pion Designs paper from their kits.
I trimmed down the packaging card to get rid of all the
gluey bits then inked around with brown ink.
Roughed up the edges of my patterned paper
before stitching it down all around.
Made my main cluster using Prima packaging - lots of it!
Mixed up with some Webster's Pages off cut pieces.
The back view of my cluster just to prove to you
that it is REALLY packaging - after all it's so pretty!
I ended up using a piece of Webster's Pages
packaging and SIX Prima packaging cards!
Then I added all my details and here we have the result!
I dry-brushed gesso on top of the black backing
cardstock to draw out the embossed dot design.
I used smaller photos again, from my Instax camera.
I also used gesso under the title alphas to make them pop.
The tassle lace is Prima and the lace doilies are Websters.
I seem to be back in love with BLING again - just a touch!
