Welcome to my blog and my post for Let's Get Sketchy. I loved this sketch and I'm sure you will too so after having a look here please call to the blog, get some more inspiration from the design team and join in the fun. This is the sketch you will be working with.
This is my take on the sketch and I have used FabScraps patterned paper to create it. My base paper is Coredinations Texture white wash Collection Paper.
When shopping with a friend (Chez) I found my title chippie and new at once that it was for a page for my mum (Helen). I have never known anyone so Brave, Courageous and Fearless. She will always be my life inspiration. Her battle with cancer continues and she will never give in, never give up. To be a cancer patient I now know you must be all three things and I admire her and all others with this disease. You fight so hard for the boys, dad and me and I love you so much mum.
The chippie is by Scrap FX and I have inked it with Distress Ink - Weathered Wood and then used a little Archival Pigment Ink - Moonlight White in spots on it.
The flowers are Little Birdie and are handmade. I used Distress ink - Weathered Wood to ink the edges of my papers and also on my background to show up the textured paper design.
The collectables are by Kaisercraft - Betsy's Couture Range and the colours matched in well with the papers and flowers. The gold in the background is Irresistible Texture Spray - Gold.The little bits of stitching have been done with my journal pen.
I hope you have enjoyed my layout and please hop on over to the Let's Get Sketchy Blog and join in the fun. There is more than just this sketch to join in on this month.
