Oh my, its November already!! Hard to believe that the shops have their Christmas decorations out and that fellow scrappers on the internet are hard at work creating Christmas cards, layouts and OTP projects. Every year I have these big plans of being more organised around Christmas time, and every year I fail at this. Last year our Christmas was spent amongst boxes still waiting to be unpacked, this year it will be the same. Not because I haven't unpacked the boxes, but because I am packing up again..... aaaarg. Well if I do not have an organised Christmas at least I can pack very well.... LOL
Today I would like to share with you my take on the sketch challenge over at Scrap Africa.
This is sketch no 23:
This LO was made with the Kaisercraft Take Note Collection. The stenciling on the background was done with texture paste and was coloured with some perfect pearl - gold and green. The ink splatters were made with Mr Huey's spray as well as some heirloom gold perfect pearl spray. Some gold confetti were randomly attached on the background.
The photographs were taken of my 2 younger children on a sunny October afternoon. So in the left hand, bottom corner I used the brand name from a sheet of October Afternoon paper as part of the embellishment cluster and the date.
The layout was finished off with some random stitching, inked around the edges with distress ink and splattered with water. All the products used on my layout are available from the Scrapbook Studio in Jeffreys Bay.
I really appreciate you stopping by to look at my work. Be well.....
Till next time
