Sketchy Boards November Challenge

Thanks Sketchy Boards   for this great sketch & colour palette. I really love these colours together.

Starting with Kaiser Fairy Dust Collection P1967  Pixie, I endeavored to change the appearance a bit. I started using  gesso, then remembered  half way thought, that i was going  to use gelatos and texture paste would be better suited for  this,   as it turned, I  only used the  Gelatos  a little bit  as i changed my min
d again , this happens  you start off going one way,  &   do something else along the  way,

  Using Kaiser - T602 Damask stencil,  texture paste over it and while still on there, i sprayed  with a mixture of  Kaiser denim  mists , Dylusions After Midnight  sprays,  &  a touch of Mister Hueys opaque white colour mists. as some of it was a bit dark. left it there a few minutes to  set a little,  after taking off the stencil, ive got some wet ones and  blotted up any  blotches &  dabbed them around the edges.

 I've had in my scraps, some  paper with bats on, & thought, its either throw it away or use,  so i have made  them with the strips, just showing a bit of the  bats for  depth.

At the recent craft show at southport, i purchased, in a section where one makes hats,  some flowers

Also in my stash, ive had the , sparklets, Butterflies, glass  buttons,  flowers & swirls  which I have placed around . the layout.

In White with one  November challenge, i  purchased a mystery pack  from the Resin Rainbow,   I paid $5.00 for my mystery pack,  & had some left over pieces, (still have more)  so here i have used the leaves under my flowers
 on the left hand of the page, i  have used the  Martha  Stewart punch to create a border along in purple cardstock.
 i have painted  one chipboard circle with dylusions spray and the other one with Faber-Castell Gelatos light purple

hope  you enjoy my layout, as much as i really enjoyed creating this page this afternoon. Im extremely pleased with my result today.

 Using  my 6 inch cricut machine, and the art booking  cartridge, ive  cut out the word Halloween.

until next month, not long to go.

White with one

White with one  challenge our one color this month is grape

I received  my first mystery pack  to start my challenge, as i was away ,when it came, im not sure it the heat, did it , or just being in the hot house ,while we were away, but some of my pack had melted  so i  made the best with what i had ,no problems.

As it was i ended up cutting up most  of the patterned part, i have used the flowers & what parts i could use,

with my cricut machine and my new cartridge, i created the word Halloween, webs &  picket fence,
I went to a craft show on the 14th November & found some feathers ( that's designed for making  fastanators but my mind went  to thinking of making it look part of spiders web, i have also wound it around the  embellishments ( from mystery pack )
i have used a kaiser stamp for a bit of background effect and  some frosted lace stickles

at the craft show, i have also purchased a witches stamp,  from Ectectic Images  Art stamps  & scrapbook papers.
i have some X-press it  glitter deco tape in purple
i have popped my photo  up with foam dots, to make it look like im flying.
