"Cherish" - Design Team Creation for The Scrapbook Store using June's Sketch Challenge

A very warm welcome to you on this very cold morning here in Queensland!
I am sitting here still rugged up in the dressing gown and slippers keeping warm.
Today I am here to share my interpretation of June's Sketch Challenge for The Scrapbook Store.
You can find it below. Thank you to Marelize for this fantastic sketch. It really made me think!!



I have been so wanting to do something a little Vintage for sometime now, as it has been a while. I came across this gorgeous photo of my mother-in law as a young toddler. Isn't she just the cutest. Love the bow in her hair!! So I wanted to do something a little vintage with a lot of prettiness using this month's sketch and this is what I came up with.......

"Cherish"


To start off I turned the sketch on its side. From here I used the patterned papers layering them after tearing them in to strips. It is hard to see here as I have also layered lots of embellies over the top...lol!!


I have used a little media being some modelling paste through my Prima Crackle Stencil. Once it dried I inked over it with a little Black Soot distress ink.


These resins are incredibly beautiful. The first time I laid eyes on them I knew I had to have them and so I did. I have only used the couch and the dresser from this pack. Keeping the phone for another layout. I inked over the couch here with a little Dusty Concord and Black Soot to give it a little colour.

I hand dyed the 
Lace and Cheesecloth with some tea and I punched some leaves, 18 to be exact! Each was inked with Walnut Stain Distress Ink and moulded to shape. 


As I always do I have listed below all the materials used for this layout with item numbers where I could. I hope you have enjoyed my Vintage Styled layout today.

Thank you ever so much for visiting!
