A Sketch from Ulrika
It was Texture Tuesday today in the studio and the challenge was to use 3 papers from either of the new 7 Dots ranges I have in stock.
Here is the link: http://scrapmatrix.com/paper-and-ranges/7-dots/
I came across this site the other day and checked it out - it has some great sketches - and Ulrika is very talented also, her work is lovely.
I love this photo of my nanna, poppa and my dad. Nanna's face shows the love and pride she has for her only son.
I have used 7 Dots - Thoughts Keeper.
The colours are so soft and lovely, just perfect for a heritage layout. I used 3 sheets - no 2, 3 & 5. I also used part of a Blue Fern set (the Splattered Circle), some washi and a whole bunch of random flowers that I had in my stash. I coloured the chipboard (no gesso) with Twinkling H2Os - I love the softness of the colour straight on the chipboard.
I am so happy with the way this heart turned out - just what I wanted (woohoo!)
So, anyway... I loved the sketch so much (and couldn't decide which 7 Dots range to use today), so I did another, using the Destination Unknown range.
Again, I used 3 papers - Journey, Celestial and Night Sky.
When I look at this photo now, it makes me smile. I had got a copy from Aunty Jean and when I showed dad, he said that nanna hated the photo! Apparently, she was always conscious of her weight - and didn't appreciate that the photo implies that it took 4 people (well, they are kids!) to balance out her weight at the other end of the boat!
I also used a Prima stencil and stamp - and some flowers, Scrap Matrix chippie, Heidi Swapp stickers... and more random flowers.
They turned out so different - they hardly look like the same sketch!
Thanks for popping by, Cheers, Vicki
