October Sketch Challenge at The Scrapbook Store

Hi everyone!  Today I want to share the October Sketch Challenge at The Scrapbook Store.  Here is the sketch.  Hope you like it!
And my example using the beautiful Maja Design 'Vintage Spring Basics' collection.  The photos are of my friend's gorgeous little girl, taken a few years ago. :)
The chipboard circle is the 'Small Circle Flourish' from Blue Fern Studios.  I gave it a coat of gesso and then coloured it up using various inks
The background texture was achieved using the 'Bubble' stencil from Tim Holtz and some texture paste.  The flowers are a mixture of Prima and Green Tara Cheery blossoms and mini roses.
Another little cluster in the corner.  The leaves are 2Crafty 'Summer Leaf Stems' chipboard.
That's all for today.  Please check out the Gallery for more awesome inspiration from the rest of the DT.  And then play along!  You have until the end of October to get your entries in.  There's an awesome $40 store voucher up for grabs with free postage and the winner gets determined by random draw, so anyone can win!  I would love to see your entries. :)
Thank you for popping by.  Hope you are having a great week.
Until next time!

Scrap Africa Sketch Challenge No 36

Hi there everyone! Just a quick post to tell you about the new sketch over at Scrap Africa. You've got to check it out.  We have some awesome Guest Designers this month and some beautiful examples by the whole of the DT.  Below is my take on the sketch. I have used an old collection from Kaisercraft called 'Tropicana'.   I thought that it was perfect for the sketch.  The photo is of my DD and her best friend having cocktails while holidaying in Bali.
I have used an overlay from the collection that provided me with the palm trees and island feel that I was after.  I've cut some of the transparency away so I could still add more layers and dimension to my layout.
 All the bits and pieces are from the collectables pack with only a few little extras. :)
 Here is the gorgeous sketch!
I hope you can play along with us this month! Just link your take on the sketch to the Scrap Africa post HERE.   You have until the 14th of October to get your entry in.
That's all for now.  Will hopefully have more to share soon.
Have a wonderful day and thank you so much for popping by.
Until next time!
