Here is the LO I created for the sketch challenge at SUYS this month. The challenge was to use the sketch, have a number in your title and a handmade item of course.
I have been itching to use my new Bo Bunny butterfly pp's... right up my alley.. I love butterflies!! Used pretty much all Bo Bunny except for the background which was some old MME. My title is 2 Gifts and the quote is "There are 2 lasting gifts we give our children. One is roots, the other is wings."
I made a flower from some teal satin as my handmade item and used it as the centre piece of my flower cluster. Added some texture with a hessian strip, lace and some hand stitching with jute.
The yummy lamp post and flourish chippies are from Scrapmatts. I inked them and went over them with some gloss.
Meeting Sofie, Andew and Angela
I went to the Craft Expo on Friday and got to meet the gorgeous Sofie & Andrew Rossides who are the owners of Scrapmatts and also the amazingly talented Angela Peardon who is on the DT for Scrapmatts. It was so nice to meet them in person and they were the lovliest people. Sofie insisted I have a photo taken with herself and Angela.. poor Andrew had to take a few as I kept mucking up the photos. Of course while I was there I had to make some purchases of their yummy chipboard products which I have used on my LO. Pop on over an check out their site if you're a chippie fan you won't be disappointed. Sofie has the most amazing talent on her DT, so check out the gallery while you're there... absolutely gorgeous creations to inspire you!!
Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving some love :)
