Running out of words....

I am running out of words to describe Shona's style! Beautiful, stunning amazing are a few words that come to mind! Some don't understand why I would post someone else's work on my blog but this is my inspiration and hope to grow my craft this way! So take it in :)


Happy Sunday everyone and welcome to my blog J I got my Scrap That! kit a few days ago and finished up my layouts for reveal day and decided to play along at TCR again this week. I made this layout using the sketch from DA and this week’s palette at The Color Room.  I used a tutorial from Scrapperlicious for inspiration on the Girly Grunge look. You can see her blog here. I used lots of Dusty Attic, some of my dads old piano music for the butterflies and a flower and lots of misting and gesso. The photo is my daughter and sister in law.

There are so many layers of Dusty Attic pieces and mists and gesso this was a super fun layout to make. I distressed the outer edges and added some Prima Metal pieces as well.

All of the papers are from Prima. The butterfly and one flower were made from some old piano music from 1940. It was my dads music and I am lucky to have all of his old music. It is really weird paper too..almost a cross between paper and tissue paper and wax paper. It is so discoloured it is perfect for this. Don’t worry though….I would never destroy my dads music, I am lucky enough to have 2 copies of this one specific book.

A close up of the flower and I tucked in a lace doily that I bought from the thrift store.

I did some lacing on t his layout and got to use a new punch set that I just bought J

Ok well that is it for today. Thanks again for stopping by and I hope that you have a fantastic week. I will be back t his week for my final reveal with Sketchabilities and a new reveal for Stuck on U Sketches.  Feel free to leave me some scrappy love comments, I love reading them ...take care and happy scrapping J
