Beauty 12x12 Layout.

Most of you know by now I am moving at the end of the month to Nevada. I should have packed up all my craft stuff by now but we ran out of boxes. :p (that is my excuse for right now anyways) I was trying to clean up my desk last night and I could not stop thinking about this gorgeous paper. The Prima Nature Garden. I HAD to create something with it.

I created this layout for the March Sketch over at Once Upon A Sketch

I used the Nature Garden paper along with some embellies from the collection as well. I used some gorgeous lace from Wild Orchid Crafts along with some flowers. I used some Lindys to color the flowers silver and black. I sprayed the Prima vine with Lindys as well. I used a Crafters Workshop mask to paint the bricks. I painted them in a creme then put a crackle paint over. I also did the same with the clock die cut. I used some grunge flowers that I got from Jules in the cameo album set. They are so perfect to slip in for some layering. The doily on the left is from my friend Miranda. I also did a little bit of fussy cutting. The sketch was super fun but I had to twist it a little bit hehe!!

This brought me out of my comfort zone as one of the requirements is to journal. Most of you know that i do not journal. Ever! lol. But I Journaled on the back. It basically is saying how much I miss her when she was a newborn and I already miss her as she is now. If that makes sense lol. I am not sure why I don't like journaling. Doing the hidden journaling i think is the best and then i won't regret not doing it later. As you can see I have horrible handwriting and i am a horrible writer too.

If you have any questions please feel free to ask.

The Tech Kit this month was so much fun to work with. I loved making my suitcase. I will have a video the last saturday of the month.

I used mostly items from the Tech kit or the main kit. The Canvases are from Canvas Corp and the paper inside the suitcase is from Canvas Corp as well. The paper on the outside of the suitcase is Glitz Designs. My suitcase is super shabby. Lots of lace and Distress stain in picket fence.

Hope you get inspired.
