A Sketch Challenge at Scraptastic

Hi ladies. Today I would like to share my take to Scraptastic Club's November Sketch Challenge found here. You will see a lot of gorgeous interpretation from some of my co-DT.

Here is the sketch by the talented Heather Landry:

Here is my take:

Here I have used a previous kit, Noted kit. This is one of my favorite kit to date because of all the beautiful elements that came with it. I did my own take by rotating some of the elements from the sketch. It is always fun to join in our sketch challenges with all the great sketches Heather makes. Can't wait to see yours!

One Sunday afternoon...

...I took this photos at Nuvali while we are at Starbucks. Also, one Sunday a few weeks ago, I made this layout for my DT assignment at Imaginarium Designs.I love Sundays because it is always the most quiet day of the week. A day when I can spend more time with my family and for myself.

Here was the layout that I made using some Graphic45 goodies. It has been a long time since I used some G45 just because I think their products is not my style. The great thing about their papers lately is the back design is more soft and has a milder design which I love.

Products Used: Graphic 45 patterned papers, white gesso, sand, Kaisercraft stamp, AC Thickers, Prima Alpha Sticker, Mists and Liquid Pearls.

Imaginarium Design Chipboards used:
Train Track Border (IDB0006)

The train track border chipboard was initially painted with white gesso and adhered sand. Once it dried, I immediately misted a few greens and browns on it while it was still wet to add colour.

Imaginarium Design DT Layout

I made this for a special friend here in the Philippines. I wanted to give her a page where there is dimension, texture, and layering. I have used several chipboard design for this layout and applied the steampunk technique.

Products Used: BasicGrey Patterned Paper, Prima Flowers, My Minds Eye Brads, Kaisercraft Paper Blooms. Pebbles Inc Metal Embellishment, Prima bling, Tattered Angel, October Afternoon and Maya Road Mists.

Imaginarium Design Chipboards used:
9 Cogs on board (IDS0018) 
Steam Punk Clock (IDS0030)
Honeycombe (IDS0053) 

To achieve the steampunk effect, I used several mists with the same green hue. I started applying using the lightest shade first then added a few more spray until using the darkest shade of green that I have.

We all know that sunburst design is a huge trend in scrapbooking for the past few months. We see pages upon pages of using this technique in different ways. Some add stitching, some use mists, and some uses diecuts to achieve this look. Whatever technique is used to create a sunburst effect, it always add dimension to a page.

For my layout, I have used the cool Blue Skies kit. All of the patterned papers here are actually scrap leftover from the kit. I was able to use all the small pieces for all those tiny circles. Even the sunburst was made using strips that were left after creating 3 layouts. I made the white sunburst as my main piece then by simply adding strips of patterned paper at the back and in front, the layering effect was perfect.

Thanks for dropping by! And if you have time, feel free to join us this month for 4 exciting challenges at Scraptastic Blog.
