'The Weekend' for Inkido and Once Upon a...Sketch

Hi it's me, Bente again to share a lo with you this beautiful Sunday morning.
I love my Inkido papers and am always looking forward to using them on my layouts together with plenty of flowers.

Todays layout is no exception. I have used flowers, gesso,. mists, gems, and paints on this one to create this soft feminine, rather shabby look that I like. I have distressed all my papers and stitched them to the page using my sewing machine.

I used the latest sketch from Once Upon a Sketch as a base for my page.

I always LOVE Nadias sketches. But surprisingly enough this is actually the first time I post a page to OUAS since I spent a lovely time on the original DT.
I dont't play along with challenges much but will try to up my game.... :-)
I have journaled about how we have enjoyed this last weekend being a calm one,as we are used to being soo busy always. The journaling also continues on the back of the layout. 

I used a heart shaped doily as a base for my title. Those bling stones by Inkido add such a lovely shine and they do them in all kinds of colours. The cute butterfly was cut from one of the papers.
A little closer look at the central part of the layout.

And here's a closie of the stitched banners.

Thanks for dropping by! I hope you take some inspiration from my page and that I will see you here again soon!! Enjoy your Sunday!!
