I was so excited when I saw Denise's amazing sketch for this new challenge at SCRAP AFRICA, I couldn't wait to use it for some photos I took whilst on our Summer holiday. Here is the wonderful sketch & I'm sure you'd agree that it is quite lovely:

I started with some sea-foam coloured paper from Authentique and added some texture paste with a stencil. The heart is hand-drawn then sprayed and splashed some glimmer mist all over the place. I cut a heart from some fabric and inked, sprayed and distressed it to add more texture to the background.

Behind the photos as well is some paper offcuts in the same sea-foam/pale aqua tones which I also inked. The flowers are Prima and the title is from Words or Whatever. I also used some Kaisercraft rubons on the background and a script stamp. The flair button is from StudioFourteen40.

I really hope that you get a chance to have a go at this sketch challenge. I'd love to see what you can come up with :) TFL xx
