This week I am the Guest Designer for Stuck On U Sketches, and this is the LO I did following the sketch by the wonderful Vanessa Waller. I had been hoarding the beautiful paper from K and Company "Tuscan Sun", and decided to use it for the Stop The Hoarding Challenge at Swirlydoos. The designers entries are always for inspiration only. But it forced me to finally cut open that paper pack!! I was also inspired by The Color Room colors this week. Palette # 32... So warm and cozy and feels like Autumn.
The leaves are from Heartfelt Creations and I misted them with Glimmer Mist in 3 different colors. I die cut some small flourishes from my Sizzix Sizzlets collection. I also misted the lace with GM in pinapple. The clock was stamped from my Tim Holtz Lifes Possibilities stamp set, then cut out and adhered to LO. I die cut the journaling block using Spellbinders Nestabilities set Labels #1 and used a Heartfelt Creations stamp for the journaling.
I created the flowers to match the paper using the Tim Holtz Alterations Tattered Floral die to make the sunflowers in 2 layers. I cut out a warm orange cardstock then sprayed on Glimmer Mist in Scarlet and Golden Terre Cotta. I misted them slightly and scrunched them for texture. The middles were created the same way I created the middles for my Name that Flower tutorial and misted them in Pineapple. The butterfly is from one of the collections I share with everyone. I covered it in Rock Candy Stickles for some vintage shimmer, adhered by the body and lifted the wings for dimension.
The letters were die cut with Tim Holtz Vintage Market strip die. And you can find my tutorial for the decorative circle for Swirlydoos here. Thanks for all of the inspiration I find everywhere and to all the scrappers who pay it forward. I do this every chance I get.
