SOUS sketch May 10th

Good morning everyone!  I hope you are enjoying your Friday!  This weeks sketch from SOUS was super fun!  I had lots of fun getting dirty!  I used one of my new purchases - Art Anthology dimensional paint!

Our son is working on his gokart that he absolutely loves!  I used Kaisercraft basecoat and some gears from the sizzex.  My hubby also bought some metal gears at our local farm implement store!  I used the Art anthology paint on the gears to make it look oily!

here is some of the details

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

May Anniversary kit reveal!

Hi everyone!  It's MAY DAY!  anyone doing anything fun today?  I am really hoping to scrap some this afternoon after I attack the mountain of laundry my family has accumulated this week!  Chores should NOT get in the way of scrappy time! lol!

The ScrapThat! kit this month is sooooooo beautiful!  A really fabulous kit chuck full of happy colors!

My first creations I created some paper rolls to add some dimension and interest!
I will have a quick tut later in the month on how I created these so make sure you check it out!

It is super simple layout but with the paper rolls and the fiber I think it really brings your attention to the photo of my beautiful granddaughter Gina!
I used some home made mist to change the color of the fiber so it would match the mood of the layout.  I also punched a few butterflies out of the vellum included in the kit & added some pearls for the bodies!
This layout was created using only the main kit - no add ons!

Here are a few of the details!

Hope you all have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by!
