August Cybercrop Challenge reveal – sketches + sparkle
Hello crafty friends, welcome to our August Cyber Crop…
Continuing with our theme of sketch & sparkles, we have 3 more challenges for you and a week to create and upload.
Hello everyone, here is my sketch. If you don’t wish to do a double layout, that’s not a problem, just pick a side! Add your own touches to the sketch, as long as the basic design can be seen 🙂 For the sparkle element please add some bling, like rhinestone or sequins.
Today is my day off, and I will be scrapping my example, can you guess which range I’m using?
Louise here. This is one of those layouts that was tricky because the subject was very sensitive.
So I decided to hide my journalling behind some tags – that way the story is there but I don’t have to read it unless I pull the tag out.
This is a layout of the last photo I have of Miss Sally, who sadly passed away in June.
Here is the sketch to inspire you:
Don’t forget to add some sparkle to your page … I’ve used Gold Nuvo as a border to tie in my title.
The “Tapestry of Time” collection has some beautiful florals so was perfect for creating this memory of my precious girl.
Another Cyber Crop challenge and this time using a sketch.
I love using sketches, it takes the hard work out of scrapbooking I think.
I would like you to use this sketch by Heather Waldron (2012) that I found on Pinterest
This is my layout.
The Crafters Workshop – Tile Texture stencil using my palette knife.
I used the “smooshing” technique to add colour to the background.
I did add a little extra water using my spray bottle
once the colour was applied
but not very much because I did not want the colours to run together.
The colours I used are – Colour Mica Powder – Peach Nectar
and Color Crush – Pineapple
I also watered down some Vicki Boutin Gold Glaze and splattered that
onto the background using my fan brush.
Once the background was dry I trimmed it to 11.5″ square
The strips are 7.5″ x 1.75″, 9″ x 1.25″, 8″ x 1″, 2.5″ x 1″ and 2″ x 0.75″.
I filed the edges of my 4″ x 6″ photo and matted it onto a piece of
pink cardstock measuring 6.25″ x 4.25″, then onto a piece of
black cardstock measuring 6.5″ x 4.5″.
I added a piece of scrap chipboard to the back of the matted photo.
Time now to assemble my layout. I have used Art Glitter glue to attach all of my pieces.
I have followed the sketch fairly closely, variations being more flowers in my embellishment cluster,
the honeycomb paper is not the same size/shape as the sketch shows and I have substituted a little cluster for the butterfly/dragon fly in the top right area.
I have cut my title from black cardstock using my Kaisercraft DD700 Alphabet Upper Case die.
I also added a coat of Glossy Accents to finish the title off.
You can see my process video below
I hope you enjoy watching it.
Have fun with all of the sketches
