Sketchbook 365 & Paper Stories Love of a Lifetime kit
Hope you have all been well unlike me. I seem to have had a double dose of the flu. Ended up on anti-b's and some other meds to get it all under control. Fingers crossed I am on the up side of the down. And with feeling better comes creating. Seems like forever since I shared something!
I received an awesome pack in the mail on Friday .... it was the most beautiful kit from Paper Stories - it is the "Love of a Lifetime" kit. This contains the newly released Prima Lifetime & Engraver papers along with Prima embellishments and some other bits and pieces.
Now I have my first blog post up on the Paper Stories blog so please go and check my layout out over there because I have some tips and tricks of how I put it all together!
And they have a current sketch challenge with an awesome prize so make sure you get your layout in!!! I have had a quick look and the entries so far are just amazing!!!
Now last month I was busy creating for the Sketchbook 365 Feb sketch and not 1, not 2 but 3 times my kids destroyed this layout. It was looking so so beautiful and the sketch was so different to what I would normally create.
The first time my boy painted on it with white gesso - so thats an easy fix....
Second time he got to it with StazOn - rubbing the ink pad over the background, which he probably sees me do with the Tim Holtz pads, then he got to my Pritt glue and added a puddle. So no way I could recover this!
Ok.... third time. I restarted everything from scratch and salvaged what I could from my first attempt. I was nearly finished just had to glue a few bits and pieces down but then my TWO kids got into my craft room and destroyed this layout. April - well she went psyco with the gesso. Hand in the tub and was finger painting (yes prob learnt from me) and Nathan well he at least had a paint brush OH and the Pritt glue and Staz On. Let's just say there was no return from this and had to give in as I had no paper which I could recover.
If anyone has the Prima Songbird 'Tags' paper in their stash please let me know cause thats all I need to try again.... maybe 4th time lucky??
So I seen the Sketchbook 365 March sketch and I looove sketches always a great staring point and so I began creating with the "Love of a Lifetime" kit from Paper Stories.
I am in love with Scrap365 magazine. The layouts always always are amazing so wanted to make a mixed media layout as they really embrace the style in the mag.
So here is my layout. I will stop my waffling on.
Make sure you pop on over to the Paper Stories blog to see some tips and what I used to create this layout. I still have sooo much stuff left to create more! And nearly finished another layout with this kit!!!
