Dream BIG

Hello All,

Well I had good intentions but once again I have neglected the blog, I will try my best to update more often, REALLY!
Anyway here are a few layouts I have been working on lately.
First up is my take on this months sketch over at scrapville,

Here is the sketch...........
and here is my take.......... It is a little different from my usual style, but I had a blast working on it and was really happy with the way it turned out. I have had a play with some tissue paper (dress making pattern) and added lots of distressing, sewing, glimmer mist and a little stamping (shock horror!) but I love the effect and I plan to play a little more, it's not like I don't have a stash of gorgeous stamps that have not even seen the light of day he,he,he!!!

Be sure to stop by and check out our other examples on this sketch, join in the fun and have ago for yourself, we would love to see your take on the sketch and admire how differently they all turn out due to style, techniques and products, plus it is lots of fun and a great way to inspire if you feel like you are in a rut, I'm sure you wont be disappointed, and for you card people out there, never fear you are NOT left out, Janet has a sketch just for you.

Second up is a layout I did as a challenge over at Scrapbooking Top 50. The challenge was to......
* use doilies
* the colour blue
* staples

Here is my layout..........

a close up........

It shows some of the stamping, messy stitching and some cool little cogs which have been covered in silver kindy glitz, and as you have probably guessed I have been playing with doilies, gauze, glimmer mist, paint and lots of distressing lately and I am pretty sure you will see more of this.

Thanks for stopping by, and don't be shy, leave a comment, it makes my day!!!!!
