Stuck?Sketches and Creative Embellishments

Here I am today with another layout using the Creative Embellishment's chipboard combined with the current Stuck?Sketches sketch.  I have these wonderful pictures of my granddaughter, Madison, who is graduating this month.
Here's the sketch:

 And some closeups.  I painted the chipboard with gesso first, then with acrylic paint and then dabbed some metallic rub-ons on it.

Here's the chipboard I used on it - two full flourishes - cut up some of the Flourish 12 set.

Thanks for stopping by!

CSI Case File #170 and Creative Embellishments

 Another fun week with Creative Embellishments and CSI - love that I'm on both their Design Teams! This week we have a fun Case File with some bright fun colors for summer.  Here's how I solved it using pictures from one of our summer rituals which is a family birthday party at the end of July for all the guy's birthday (3) that are right there at the end of the month.  We meet at Becky's (step-daughter's) for a day of family fun and sun. I've used some of the Celebrate Words chippies and also one of the Flourish 27.  Then I cut a section of the Triangle Panel and backed it with papers and embellishments.

Here's a few close ups of the chipboard.  The flourish I sprayed with Heidi Swapps Color Shine in Citron (love this) and the Words I painted red and then added red glitter to.  The Triangle panel I painted red and blue and added embellishments and patterned paper. 
Thanks for stopping by!  I love hearing from you!

CSI and Creative Embellishments

Hi, it's Debbie Standard up today. This month Creative Embellishments has teamed up with CSI to solve some Case Files!  This week we are solving Case File #169 together with Em Stafrace's sketch.  I'm on both Design Teams so this has worked for me very well!  These are some pictures of my son and daughter  ( the youngest) telling how hard it is to get a good picture of them together!  I have used some words from the Special Moments Word Set together with the Flourish 10 (one of my favorites!)

Thanks for stopping by - your sweet words make my day!

Creative Embellishments and Sketchabilities

This month we have combined Creative Embellishments with Sketchabilities. Here's my layout using some of my granddaughter's graduation pictures.First up here's the Sketchabilities sketch we used together with the monthly Mood Board for the monthly challenge at Creative Embellishments. I took my inspiration from the photograph from the blue sky and the flowers.  For my page I have used the Flourish Set 10, the Stars in my Universe Frame and the Lamp Post Set.  For the twist I added a heart from the wood veneer Heart Set.

 Here's some close ups.  Here I painted the frame gold then added some gold glitter to the stars. 
 On the leaves first I painted them green and then smeared some metallic rub ons on them.

 And here's the chipboard I used:
