Time Flies by Cathi


Hi! Cathi here today sharing my take on Sandra's August sketch. This month we were generously sponsored by Creative Embellishments and by the ChantalVandenberg Etsy Shop!  I even based the color scheme of my layout on Chantal's gorgeous Flower Dreamer Embellishment felt embellishments I used!


Here you can see the fun  #SUMMER chippie I used from the Social Hash Tag chipboard set.  Sandra's sketch has a very modern look so I went for modern shaped chippies, like the Time Flies Frame Set and the Squares set.


I used the adorable Flower Dreamer Embellishment from Chantal in two places. I painted my chipboard  in a blue to match the embellishments and used a fun pink Scrap Cake paper from my stash that fit in perfectly. Because I had to add some of my usual touches I used a Prima Circles mask and some Shimmerz Texturez to make my background and of course added a few flowers!

I hope you will find the time to play along with this challenge. Here is Sandra's sketch:

August Sketch Challenge with Tracey!

Hello Scrappy friends! Tracey here and it's my turn to play with Sandra's Cool Sketch! 

Here is my creation:



I love how versatile the sketch is!


I created this mixed media piece on a cardboard that I prepped with white gesso to use as a canvas.




The large clockpiece is from our sponsor, Creative Embellishments. I gave it a patina treatment along with some older Prima Chippies.




Chantal Vandenburg creates these whimsical felt embellishments! I altered my butterfly by covering the wings with texture paste and stamping it with a rubber stamp that had been colored with alcohol markers. I then gave it some misting with Lindy's Stamp Gang Industrial Chic colors. The "body" is a Holtz pen nib.

#truelove by Tusia Lech

Hello :)

Here is Tusia Lech with layout for Berry71Bleu August challenge. This month Sandra Przybylska is a host and she created great sketch, which is very inspiring.

August Sketch by Sandra Przybylska

Here is my take on.


I have used great chipboard pieces from Creative Embellishments. I covered Out Of This World Frame with white gesso and then I added some delicate colour using Gelatos and Ecolines.


Some splashes were created using Ecolines (watercolor paint) and Ranger Distress Stains.




Below you can see Valentine's Hashtags chipboard, that I covered with Ranger Dry Glitter, to add dimension.


Below you can see cute felt embellishment from Chantal Vandenberg. You can watch her embellies in her etsy store. They are super cute and ready for using :)
