April sketch for The Scrapbook Store

 Hello!!  Coming to you on the first day of April ☺  We are well into Autumn now, still enjoying beautiful sunny days, but the temps are more mild and we have even received rain - such a blessing.
Just popping in to share the sketch for The Scrapbook Store.  It's by Page Maps and I love the clustered design of this one ☺

 I flipped the sketch over to the side, so the title is at the top and I've also used two smaller photo's.
 So here I've used some cute pictures of my youngest at the park - outdoor photo's are always fun!!
I've used some American Craft papers and some of the resist die-cuts by Heidi Swapp.  I'm having so much fun with these!!  I've included plenty of texture and other little embellishments too.
Here are some close-up's:
 Here I've used assorted 'resist' shapes from the HS Ephemera Pack and used Colour Shine to give them some gorgeous colour.  The resist effect reveals gorgeous patterns and words on each piece.  So much fun!!  I can't stop using them ☺
I've also used Heidi Swapp arrow stickers.
 Here is a little look at the texture work - it is made up of a few layers - gesso, paint and modelling paste.  I've also given it more depth using stamps.
For a banner feel, I've included twine and mini pegs - couldn't resist that ☻
There's lots of different circle elements in this sketch; I've made use of doilies, stamps and circle punches to help with the design.

Product used:

American Crafts pattern papers
Paper lace doilies
Circle punch
Prima stitched circle stamps
mini pegs
modelling paste
espresso ink
black pen
