Hi everybody! So glad to have you all here reading along with my artsy journey. It is so good to be back sharing my passion with you all.

Today I have a layout to share that was based on the April sketch on the Once Upon A Sketch Blog. Unfortunately my entry was too late but wanted to share anyway 🙂

Here is the sketch that Nadia has designed this month…

Here is my take on the sketch. I have used the gorgeous papers from Maja Design Vintage Summer Basics Line.

To create the background, I have layered random snippets of my 6×6 Crafters Workshop Brick Stencil using a thick amount of Metallic Viva Acrylic Paint and a Palette Knife. Once this was dry, I have added some Champagne Tattered Angels Glimmer Glam over the top roughly to create a more vintage tone.

The paper pieces have been distressed using the Ingvild Blome Prima Distress Tool and then inked using Tim Holtz Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink.

The fabulous A2Z Scraplets Chipboard Chicken Wire was cut to varying sizes to suit my layout and then painted with Viva Metallic Paint Mother of Pearl. The Title, which is also from A2Z, has been sprayed using Lindys Stampgang Moonshadow Starburst Stain Sprays. I just love these sprays because you get a variation of 2 different colour inks along with 2 different colour glimmers. The effect is truly incredible! I have added some little bits of Gesso with my finger on the top to shabby it up a little.

Majority of the gorgeous flowers are from Handmade Halo as well as all of the pretty little charms and the trim. I have added a small amount of gesso to the tips of the flowers to give them a more shabby feel and the charms have a small amount of Gesso plus Champagne Tattered Angels Glimmer Glam.

Be sure to head on over to the Handmade Halo website here and the A2Z Scraplets website here, to grab yourself some pretties. Don’t forget that A2Z Scraplets can also custom make anything you like, just click the custom order link on the website.

Well that’s it for now, until next time, happy scrapping!
