Sketchbook 365!

Sketchbook365 has a new sketch up today.  It's based on a layout from the April/May issue of Scrap365 by Gabrielle Pollacco who is absolutely awesome!

Here's my take on the sketch.

I took the main elements of the sketch and made it work for me. I used Prima's Pixie Glen as the base for my layout. I've have had this paper in my collection since it was launched but it was just too nice to cut!

The paper definitely called for a shabby chic finish so it was great to go to town with my distresser and gesso.

 I added small roses around the frame just to emphasise the paper. I added gauze and string for more texture as well as tiny weeny leaves.

The adorable birdie is Shabby Chic treasures (Ingvild Bolme). I love the way he is perching on the flowers!

To give everything a little more shabby, I stencilled the background and picked out some of the brickwork.

The Tea Thyme Trinkets are simply fabulous. I added a heart trinket of my own.

Check out all the inspiration from the DT here. Don't forget that the Sketchbook DT call is still open.

Thanks for popping in.
