Yesterday I had some time to play with the second sketch that Stuck?! Sketches has on there blog! At first I wasn't too sure about this sketch, but I am very happy with the end result! Except for my rookie mistake :-) ... but I'll get back to that! Here is a look at both my layout and the sketch.
Products: KaiserCraft's Blue Bay Range, Celebr8 Chipboard, Tim Holtz metal embellies, border punch, Distress Ink, Faber Castell Gelatos, Prima Color Bloom, Bazzill Craft Cardstock, small magnet.

Here are a closer look ...
I painted this a soft teal color and distressed the edges ... Loved how this turned out!
I used a script stencil and the Faber Castell gelatos to add some texture to my background. Used Distress Ink on the chippie together with some of the paint.
I cut this cute fold-out with my Silhouette to enable me to add more photos to my layout. But then I made a rookie mistake ... I added the big metal embellishment (see pic below) to the fold of my fold out, which means I could not open it. Since I glued the heavy metal piece down with hot glue I wasn't about to ruin it all by ripping it from my page. I then decided to cut a piece to just put in the fold that can be pulled out. This worked great!
To this piece I added some pictures of the hotel we stayed at in Thailand!
That is it for me today! I will be back soon with one more layout that was created for a challenge.
Thanks for stopping by ... see you soon!!
