Thanks for coming back today!

The last 2 layouts are based on two Sketchy Thursdays sketches, which you all know that I absolutely love!

and here is the sketch:

I added the cluster in the right side of the layout because I needed a journaling spot for this page plus I feel that it balances the layout. The big black plant is a digi stamp that I printed on vellum and handcut. This process took forever but I think it looks great! I had a lot of fun water distressing this layout.

Here's my last layout:

and is based on Sketchy Tursdays weekly sketch:

For this one, I also did the water distressing technique. I cut the title and blue flourish with my Pazzles. The green fishy is a shaped brad (remember those?) taht I had in my stash. I hamdade the blue flower using Wendy's tutorial (linked in a few posts below). The journaling spot is actually a digital one that I re sized and printed out.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great week!
