The Scrapbook Store - August Sketch

 Hello and happy Monday ☺ It's  a wet Winters day here, perfect for blogging and sharing my take on the August sketch for The Scrapbook Store.  We have a new sketch designer - Melinda Spinks - check out this amazing sketch:

 And here is my take on the sketch:

 I've used up some assorted pattern papers in my stash - some Basecoat - Crate Paper - Simple Stories.  I have some cool letters for my title by Heidi Swapp and have used some of the Perfect Pearls Mist in the background with the Studio Calico Starburst mask.
Here are some close-up's:

 The alphabet letters are by Heidi Swapp and I've sprayed over them in Colour Shine to reveal the resist pattern - how cool !!!
Using the SC Starburst mask - I've sprayed over with the Perfect Pearls mist in Blue Rasberry - I love the subtle colour and the shine is gives to your page. I've also added in some extra details with hand-stitching and stamped arrows, as well as sequins ☺
 For the star/circle element of the sketch, I've used a stamp - an older one from MME.  I've added in a flair badge.  And instead of the second photo - I've used a Crate Paper tag.
My typewriter journal work and a row of star buttons - love adding these to my pages lately.

We hope you will find some time this month to join in with this sketch challenge.  Pop over to the gallery at The Scrapbook Store for more inspiration and to add in your creation ☺
Thanks for coming by and I hope to be back soon to share some creations using my DT kit - Cameron - Elle's Studio - can't wait ♥
