Round Robin - Go Green

Round Robin for March at Swirlydoos has the theme Go Green.

I had two gorgeous layouts to follow and lift.

Here is my layout:

The photo is of an old, damaged stove. We found it by an old ruined house out in the wood one day we were out for a walk. I love the colors and patina on it.

I made a large bow with a green burlap ribbon:

I think this feather, which we got in the January kit from Swirlydoos (from which kit also the papers and the button are) were great for this photo.

The theme Go Green should be shown by the color green, recycle something and using an outdoor photo. I found two old packaging that I recycled. One of them I cut in two and the one part I fussycut and used with my flowercluster:

 I used som gesso with a stencil and dripped some mist around.

Feeling Sketchy sketch #165

It's time for a new sketch at Feeling Sketchy.

Here is my take on it:

Here is the sketch, #165:

Jen Leeflang sitt bilde.

 Cathy Van de Bruinhorst sitt bilde.

I have used Lenten Rose or Christmas Rose, the pre-coloured set.

I printed out two of the same colour and cut out the flower from one of them, put it on the other with 3D adhesive pads in three different hights for more effect.
I also used some stickles to highligt some points.

I also put one of the three pieces of paper on the left hand of the card on 3D adhesive pads, to let the sentiment stand out too.

Ice skating worship

Last winter we wanted to have a worship outdoors. The local sportsteam has an Ice Skate Festival on the local lake. We asked if we could have a worship in their tent. They said yes, and the first Sunday after the Festival we had the worship.
Since I got these photos from one of the one who attended I have wanted to do something with them. 

When I saw this sketch at Let's Scrap, I thought it would work perfect for these photos.

The papers and most of the embellishments are from the Desember 2016 kit from Swirlydoos.

I used some snowpaint on the metallic snowflakes and put some bells on them.

 I used the same paint with a stensil to make snowflakes around.

Stick it Down - double page inspiration

It's time for more inspiration on the double page sketch for March at Stick it Down.

I have used photos from our trip last year to Joshua Tree National Park. We took a walk in Hidden Valley and here are my layout with photos from that walk:

And here is the sketch:

I choose to print most of my photos in the size that the sketch indicated. Then I pulled them together as on the sketch, on cardstock, cut out around and Cut the standing photo in the middle in two.
For my background I used about 1 1/2 piiece of 12 x 12 paper, cut them in strips, distressed the edges and adhered.

Here are some close-ups:

Together with the flowers I used some green leaves from the same packaged and I cut out some leaves in barlup for some extra interes .

 I put on some halfpearls around the flowers.

I put my journaling on a piece of cardstock.

I put some chipboard in two of the corners. The chipboards are colored with gesso and some color from Shimmerz.

Feeling Sketchy, sketch #164

It's March and time for a new cardsketch at Feeling Sketchy.

I had a fun time making my card this time, using a stencil, gesso and mists on the background. Used my Prisma color pencils to color the motiv, and here is the result:

Our sponsor this time is Pattie's Creations.

The motive I have used is from there. I decided to use the same motive three times, without coloring two of them totally.

Here is our sketch:

Cathy Van de Bruinhorst sitt bilde.

And here are some details:

It isn't very visible, but a used two colors of mists, one Moon Shadow mist in brown/yellow and a Stardust mist in yellow, both from Lindy's Stamp Gang, on the background.

Stick it Down, February double sketch

It's a new month and time for new sketches at Stick it Down.

Here is my take on this month double sketch:

As you can see have I mirrowed the sketch. I did this because of the photo up in the left corner. This photo would have looked awkward on the other side, with Crhist looking out from the layout.

I used a stensil and some stonepaint from Art Anthology on the background.
The fence is painted with Prima paint.

Here is the journaling about the Los Angeles Cathedral, of course handwritten.

The Cathedrals full name was too long for the title so I put it over the main picture, "Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels".

For the title on the page I used the short version.

I have used two chipboards from Blue Fern Studio and they are colored with embossing powder from Lindys Stamp Gang. One of my favorite methods for coloring chipboards.
