Sketchabilities! Sketch 62 is LIVE!! - Your Big Nite Layout

Hi there blog friends!
I hope you are all recovering well from your festive
over-indulgences :)  Time to start thinking about getting 
back to scrapping!!  Here's a great sketch from
Sketchabilities to get your creative juices flowing!

I went mist crazy on this one as you can see!
{Well to be honest you can't really see as it has a
wonderful "Perfect Pearls" sheen to it that doesn't
show at all unfortunately but it's there believe me!}

I am doing well with my daughters school graduation dance 
album - here the photos are just focusing on the decor.

I used a lot of different mists to create that 
really radiant {and radiating} effect...


I broke up a Webster's Bouquet & reconstructed it, inking
the gold flowers up to show up the leaf veins some more.


I also split up a couple of Prima bling swirls 
& stickled over some Thickers for my title.


 I got some sheer effects going on with doilies & a Hambly
transparent overlay from my dear friend Mitra in the US.


I was trying with the mists & the sheer additions 
to emulate the luminosity of the night lights.
