Life.Paper.Scrapbook | September Sketch...

Hello Friends.  Today I can share my layout created for the September Sketch over at Life.Paper.Scrapbook.  It suggests a lot of layers beneath those photos and I was willing to accommodate! :)  But I did mix it up a little by rotating the sketch to suit my photo.
 

"Epic"

products used: cs - Kaisercraft; pp - Teresa Collins (Memorabilia); Greatest View - woodgrain style badge/flair, chevron ribbon, gold thread, mini doilies; other - Teresa Collins: sequins, borders, cardstock stickers; WOW stencil hearts; Studio Calico: Mr Huey's Calico Shine, Glimmermist: sunflower; staples; tools - typewriter.

The patterned papers used to create this layout are from the new Teresa Collins collection Memorabilia.   They are a part of my September DT Kit for The Scrapbook Store.  All products can be found here.


I've also had a chance to play with the gorgeous WOW Alta Matz stencils: hearts in a row.  They are a lot thicker than most stencils or templates and lay on the cardstock quite flat.  No need to tape/adhere the stencil down.  I used Mr Huey's calico shine to create almost invisible hearts on the white cardstock and while it was still wet, quickly sprayed a yellow glimmermist directly over the white calico shine.  It created these speckled, ombre hearts.

 
This sketch was such an inspiration point that I loved putting together this layout.  If you would like to play along, (and I would love to see your interpretation) ...here are the details...
 
This month's sponsor is Polly! Scrap Kits..
