Today I want to give you a closer look and more details of the layout I created using the August ScrapThat! Sketch by Amarilys Doria using the August ScrapThat! Kit
"Once Upon On A Dream"
So the sketch was beautiful and very versatile and made my layout a real no brainer!
I love Amarilys's delicate shabby looking sketches and honestly it seemed to help me pull my layout below together rather simply!
This is a layout of my middle child, she is super terrific and I love her to bits! This super cute photo I took of her worked perfectly for these papers in my August ScrapThat! Kit!
The papers in the August Kit are from Kaisercraft's Charlottes Dream Collection and are just so beautiful! Before layering my papers I distressed them using my Invild Bolme Distress Tool and grunged everything up really nicely! I also added a bit of border stitching using some embroidery floss!
This is a close up of the lower right side, If you look closely you will see the cheesecloth tucked here and there in my flower cluster. The flourish is actually hand made and I purchased it on Etsy a long time ago! I gave everything a simple white washing using my white acrylic paint to achieve a toned down shabby look!
This is a close up of the left side of the photo and basically the same thing as above except I added an older Prima chipboard sticker....
This is the upper left side, where I made a few paint drips.....lol I love the puckered look it seems to have, I'm guessing it's due to the texture of the paper, which has some sort of resist on it. You may also notice I gave the paper a light swipe with a dry paint brush and acrylic paint as well as over the stitched border.
Thanks for stopping by, Iou enjoyed!
