Member sketch challenge at the Nook. July kit. MME "Indie Girl", "Ginger".

Hi there, hope you are all well and feeling happy!!

Yesterday was my turn on the blog of 'My Scrapbook Nook'.
This month I am in charge of making the July member sketch from one of the lovely layouts in the gallery.

If you go HERE you can see the sketch and which member lo I chose for the sketch.
We also have  a GDT for the sketch.

This is my layout :

And as always ; some closeups:

 Some photos of the flowers I made with a die from Nellie Snellen.

The letter stickers are by Jillibean soup and came with the July kit from the Nook. 
Two posts down you can see the entire kit pictured. 
The tiny chipboard word 'Together' is bautiful and delicate and made by 'Imaginarium Designs'.

The different buttons in various materials are also by MME from  the ' Indie Girl Ginger' collection.

I wanted some dimension and added handcut double hearts sewn to my paper.
You can keep adding more layers of hearts, but as mine are rather small two layers are enough.

I think the sewn little garland is so cute. it is the same one I used for my card the other day.

To achieve this effect I gessoed through a mask. After that dried entirely I wanted to add some colour to enhance the circle that was in the sketch. I cut out a large circle, put the mask on again underneath and used my stamp pad to colour the gesso. 
I think the effect is quite neat. I did that before on a lo with a blue ink pad and I was equally happy!
 It's just so simple and no mess!

Some sewing added here and there as usual!

Thanks for dropping by. Hope you enjoyed my page :-)!

  16. Tee hee LOVE Bea in that hippie 70's outfit, she looks way too cool in the shades! What a shame to call it a 70's party and then nobody except Bea had bothered to dress up! The stitched garland and hearts are so sweet, the flowers are also such a darling detail. Everything is pulled together so well! There they are again, the yummo alphas - perfect! This is such a gorgeous fabbo page Bente! Börjar se hur det dyker upp detaljer som du inte riktigt använt förut, man tar ju till sig den stil som liksom är populär där man "jobbar". Riktigt, riktigt snyggt! Kul att höra din röst i luren här om sistens. Ha det gott! xoxo
