sketchy boards July challenge

thanks page drafts, what a  great sketch,  
& sketchy boards  for mood board  colours

seeing as im having a destash   in my craft room, i thought i would miss some  challenges this month, and concentrate on    selling a few items, that i dont use any more,  ( and then  some challenge site will put up something i have sold, isnt it always the norm, )

anyway,  got to thinking  , that i could possibly  do one or 2  if i tried, so
 here is  sketchy boards.
now, everyone  knows, im a true Kaiser lady,    but  i have you know,  that today, i have used  Close to y Heart papers  that ive had in the  drawer for  at least 2 years,   so best  use them. otherwise they might be on the selling board

I  have used,  Ultimate crafts Magnolia Lane collection  timeless  die.
                       Kaiser  timeless  collectables.
                       Kaiser  Prairie  lane Collection  alpha stickers
                        Kaiser   bling
                        Dylusions ink spray   vibrant  turquoise  on the green  papers   to make them the right colour  & splashed some   over the page
                      i have distressed and inked around the page also  with Kaiser  ink  pad , bark

 hope you like it ,
until next month,   enjoy and have fun

July 123 challenge

 thanks  very much for this great challenge, i  usually, dont  work in pastels, but do have  papers for them 

 123 challenge 
colour       - pastels
word         - priceless
technique -       glitter

so  today, i thought i would incorporate   mixed media with  old pastels scrap papers & collectables

as  my background,  ive used the kaiser stencil, circles  &  liquid pearls,  pink,  blue, yellow and purple and mixed them with  cotton ball to give a lighter shade of  colour on all    

the  liquid pearls,  im not  that happy with, but  dont  take things back ,& it seems a shame then  not to use them, even though,  they  did not work the way i wanted the to so this was a good way to use more of  it . i do like the colours  & they look pretty on the shelf,  i now have some new liquid pearls  that are 3 d, and love them, 

so have mixed   the cotton  ball to all the colours &  painted it on  my white card stock. 
i have inked around the white cardstock with pink   ink from kaiser &  placed it on my Ballet  Kaiser card stock.
 then  out  of my scraps, i have found  kaiser lullaby papers and some   nursery papers (  that i bought at kmart years ago) 
The  butterflies and  swirls are from Kaiser 'chapter one  collectables,

i have  printed my priceless on my   cricut machine and  put glitter over it  and on one of the butterflies,
and popped up  the word  priceless, 

 one challenge done for this month,  

its amazing what one finds, when  i have a 6 month clean up ,  last month , i wanted  jigsaw puzzles, and knew i had them , today i found them , too late  for  challenge,    

well, best get back to sorting the room ,until next month, 

p..s  in the right hand corner of the layout,  you might  notice ,that  it looks a bit   blurry,  i  recently , bought a new camera  early in the year, but when i was on holidays,  the camera fell out of  my  pocket and onto the rocks below,   (   i should have listened to hubby, when he said  do you have to take the  camera everywhere ) , had i left it in the car, it would be good now, i did not tell him  that i sort of broke it and  can not  afford to get another  $400.00 camera .
