A Sketch, A Flower and Memories Scrapbooking Expo!

SC325 blk

I’m not sure what was more fun,
the layout or making the paper flower!

I used Spellbinders Blossom 3 and Martha Stewart’s Hydrangea punch for this flower. The paper is Prima’s Botanical and regular newsprint spritzed with Rose Tea Glimmer Mist. I took each of the Blossom 3’s, spritzed with water and carefully scrunched them then un-scrunched (very technical term!). I heat dried them some with my heat tool, smooshing (another techy term) as I went, to help shape them, then I glued them together. The Hydrangeas are in the center.

This is the sketch on Splitcoast, see what I mean about being fun?!

I used Fancy Labels from Our Daily Bread designs, stamped in two Distress inks, Forest Moss and Tumbled Glass. Then I stamped the sentiment from Daffodil Tag Set in Forest Moss.

Martha Stewart punches were used on the DP and for the leaves. The leaves are more newsprint with Forest Moss swiped across it. The base is dry embossed with Grace’s Frame folder.
