Sketchabilities #109 reveal

Hey Scrappers!

It's great to see you around and having a look at my first DT reveal for Sketchabilities! It's about sketch #109 and it's just as awesome as usual :) I had a lot of fun creating a layout with this sketch and used a lot of mixed media. So come on and give it a try, join the challenge, too! The DT-Ladies will give you some inspiration for your creations on the Sketchabilities blog. Besides, we have a great sponsor this month: 
It's Chapel Road Stamps - division of Class Act Stamps - a Canadian Company just launched
through Notions Marketing at Winter 2014 CHA

go ahead and visit them: 

For the background I used a polka-dot paper and lots of different paints. First I misted a part of the paper with Dylusion Inks, Mr. Hueys and Perfect Pearls Mists in different blueish and greenish shades. For the contrast I applied some white ink, too. After that I stamped a flourish pattern using a blue Gelato.

I cut out the title and the branches with my Silhouette,

and applied some Jelly paint for more texture.


Then I added a few buttons and some washi-tape to embellish the page. I stamped around the edges with one of my Kaisercraft texture stamps. On this picture you can see the stamped image with the Gelato quiet good. I like the distressed look it gives to your project.

And here's another close-up of the Jelly paint. 

Now it's your turn to create a beautiful and awesome layout with the new sketch! 

Thank you all for stopping by, wishing you all a great Valentine's Day and a happy weekend!
I'm excited to see what you're going to create :)


  1. WOW , da warst Du aber fleißig, Moni :-) Dein Layout gefällt mir sehr gut!! Die Hintergrundgestaltung ist Dir super-toll gelungen und die Anordnung auf dem Layout gefällt mir auch sehr! Ich habe diese tollen Sketche von Sketchabilities auch immer auf der to-do-Liste, aber irgendwie komme ich nicht dazu...

    Viele Grüße,

    Elvan :-)
