Let's Get Sketchy - July 15th Sketch

Hi crafty friends, welcome to my blog!

The new and wonderful sketch from Let's Get Sketchy has been revealed!

Here's the sketch for 15th July


Here's my take

 
 
I was in the mood of scrapping old photo of my kid lately and this this time was no exception. I chose a photo of my daughter when she's about 10 or 11 years old, looking extremely happy posing on a horse at De Ranch Lembang.
 
I used My Mind's Eye collection from my stash to create this layout. I love the bright color and the flowers on the paper. It just screamed for summer don't you think!
 
The collection was super easy to work with. I just layered several papers, added some stickers and gold Thickers, and die cut the word Remember the Good Times using a decorative dies from Kaisercraft. I wanted to add more dimension with the die cut word so it would look like Thickers. So I cut the word for seven times and just layered them on top of another to achieve the dimension I was looking for. I was super happy with the result.
 
Come hop on over to Let's Get Sketchy blog and play along with us, it's super fun!
 
Thank you for visiting my blog, have a great day and happy crafting!

Let's Get Sketchy - July 1st Sketch

Hello my crafty friends, welcome to my blog!

I can't believe it's July already! It seemed that only yesterday that I celebrated the holy month of Ramadan and Eid al-Fitr. Boy, time flies so quickly!

Well, 1st day of the month means new a sketch from Let's Get Sketchy. Here's the sketch created by Brenshevia

 
And here's my take



I decided to dig in deep into my stash so I used the long hoarded The Sweetest Things collection from My Mind's Eye. The papers in this collection are beautiful and really went well with the color of the photo. Perfect!

I was in the mood for mixed media when I created this layout. So I pulled out my stencils and used them to add extra textures on my layout.

I used tile mania stencil from Crafter's Workshop with orange tone ink that would match the color of the paper. I also used leaf stencil from Dyan Reaveley Dylusions with light green ink. Next I used Art Is stencil from Crafter's Workshop but this time with white texture paste so it would give an extra dimension to the page.

I really like the way it came up together. So lovely!

I hope you could play along with us at Let's Get Sketchy! Happy crafting!

I love this challenge. I cut out the word Precious using my Cameo. As requested, I cut them as big as possible so it will fit on the 12x12 layout. Next I embellished the layout to my heart content and very pleased with the result.

Let's Get Sketchy - June 15th Sketch

Hello crafty friends, welcome to my blog!

Today I want to share the June 15th sketch by Let's Get Sketchy.

Brenshevia always created a beautiful sketch for Let's Get Sketchy and this mid month sketch is no exception!

Here's the sketch


And here's my take


I used my stash to create this layout. I chose a paper from Crate Paper as the background. I cut a paper from Fancy Pants Design into several strips and used them as a layer underneath my photo.

I mixed several embellishments from different collections and placed them throughout my layout to my heart content. I really love the end result here!

I hope you could play along with us at Let's Get Sketchy! Happy crafting and have a wonderful day!

Let's Get Sketchy - June 1st Sketch

Hi crafty friends, welcome to my blog!

Can't believe it's June already, time do flies quickly! New month means a new sketch from Let's Get Sketchy

Here's the sketch for June 1st:



And here's my take:

 

Well, I did stash busting to create this layout. I used old collection from Dear Lizzy called Neapolitan that I've been hoarding for ages. I also used embellishment from Amy Tangerine and other Dear Lizzy collection to embellish the page. I added gold and black ink splatter here and there to complete my page. I really love how the page turned out!

I hope you like my take. Thank you for stopping by and have a great day!
