Sketchabilities has a new reveal up! "I want to Stay with You until the Sun falls from the Sky" {Layout} Glitz Design/Prima

I have been trying for days to find the time to post this
 layout. I'm feeling overwhelmed right now & have decided
 to prioritise creating for the next couple of weeks, to get
 caught up, so if you don't hear from me you know why :)

What a delight of a sketch up at Sketchabilities this week!
Check out the awesome reveal right HERE, where this 
fortnight you have a chance to win a kit courtesy of by
 C'est Magnifique Kit Club so you WANT to play along!!

I had my Glitz stash out so I went for it with
all things girly, grabbing some gauze that I
had pre-dyed, a gorgeous Melissa Frances
resin embellishment and some good old Prima :)

I cut the title from a Glitz sticker and those lovely danglies
are from October Afternoon "Butterfly Gardens". And,
yes!  I finally set up my sewing machine so I could stitch!!

I used a small black inkpad over my chicken-wire stencil.

Flowers and bling = sure-fire prettiness...

Instead of the large photo I used a Glitz "layer" and 
inked over it with Ombre to make it stand out more.

I used a couple of little INSTAX photos again.

This one was fun and quick - scrappy therapy at it's best.
Nothing fancy - just layering it up...a nice metallic border
{bazzill bling}, a touch of stitching, some obligatory 
stencilling then lick & stick with a touch of ink!!

I'm looking for a good online store (that ships internationally)
 to buy some new Colorbox inks - the little square ones,
not the cat's eye ones as I find the square ones easier to store -
I'm having trouble finding them - anyone know where to go?

Splendid Helen!! I have to google that word, synonym for gorgeous.

It is indeed splendid! You did a magnificent work using the sketch. It all blended perfectly well with the stupendous photographs of your
alluring daughter.

Tina said...

WOW...this is an incrediable layout! I love all of it! This is one of your best Helen!

Evgenia Petzer said...

what a cool project!

no, I don't know about these inks...

Julie Tucker-Wolek said...

This is just gorgeous! Loving the metal charms and the feather!! And I see that Mitra suggested Amazon... unless they have changed recently, I don't think they ship to you in SA.... so if you find them on there...I am sure one of us in the US can help by shipping them to you... I have done that before for someone in SA...

Julie Tucker-Wolek said...

Gorgeous layout Helen...I love how well the Pink Paisley Butterfly garden go with the Glitz...and that stenciling is out of this world.

Denise Price said...

I have not seen any square Color Box ink pads lately--only the cat's eyes and the rectangles. Tsukineko has small, square ink pads--maybe you would have better luck finding those? Hope this helps.
