here is my final - 3rd - layout for the BIG sketch challenge at my creative scrapbook. as usual, the sketch was FABULOUS and easy to work with. here is my interpretation:
i've created my own die cut paper from one old (but very NICE) sheet from MME's "breaking free" collection. first, i've cut the half circles and stitched the green frame, then i started arranging and re-arranging the embellishments and the picture. the picture's actual size is A4, but after some measuring and cutting, i managed to get it exactly right for this layout:-)
i've cut and embossed some cut outs from webster's pages papers, added some extra colour and glitter:
i've tried my tatteres angels clear stamps for the first time on this layout:-) i've used "time traveler"and "seaside coastal breeze"sets with colorbox brown ink pad. after the ink has dried, i coloured the stamps with copic ciao markers.
i've added some embellishments from the AMAZING making memories "panorama" collection and from k and company's "sea glass" collection. the trim comes from the WONDERFUL MME "laundry line" collection.
one more final close up:-)
and this is the name of the cruise company:-) we were so happy with our christmas vacation, that i just had to give credit to costa cruises!
