Scrap365 August Sketch

Good morning! I'm finally back with a post about the new sketch challenge happening over at Scrap365. A very easy sketch to get the mojo flowing but there is heaps of room for interpretation.

And here is my take:                                  "Positively Positano"

Of course I had to use a photo from my DDs recent trip. This is the view from their Villa. Can you imagine waking up to this everyday! sorry about the photo I took of the layout, it's a bit wonky & the colour isn't good (I always struggle with good lighting). The clocks represent the age of this area in Italy and also the time it took for our travellers to actually get there. It was a very long day of travel although they only left from London :/

Products used:
PP - Kaszazz & Kaisercraft "Take off" collection. Kraft doily - Maya Road.
Flowers - Prima & Craft Queen.
Metal embellie - Trinkett Track
Flair - Studio Fourteen40
Washi tape & fabric circles - Craft Queen
Wooden sailboat - Studio Calico
Stencils - Crafters Workshop
Alphas - Carolees Creations
Leaves - Heartfelt Creations/Spellbinders die/stamps
Ink & misting.

As you can see, a very easy sketch to follow & I really enjoyed this process.
Thanks for dropping by & feel free to leave a comment :)

  7. Another stunning layout Jo!! This is sublime with all it's perfect holiday colours :) Thank you so much for joining us at Scrap365, Ali x

  8. Wow! That's great reading about happy memories of two Australians on Positano! Thank you! I was born very close to Positano and I'm happy to read foreigner tourists' opinion! A few days ago I posted an entry on Naples, that is the capital of Campania, the region where Positano is (my LO isn't as beautiful as yours, I'm a beginner on LOs) and I didn't expect to find someone else's craft on my region!
