A weekend with " Creative Scrappers #272 reveal"


Well it is another fun reveal day over on the Creative Scrappers blog today and this sketch is like no other!!
When Kristne asked us to play along with sketch #272 which had no photo I was at first, admittedly at little scared..yikes.. I have only ever created one other layout like this , about 7 years ago documenting my pregnancy .. 

But then as the scrappy-gods would have it , about 2 days after receiving this sketch my daughter out of the blue started telling me about her plans for when she grows up.. 
She was so matter of fact about it , that I knew I wanted it recorded so that I would remember this forever.. So sketch #272 was perfect !! 
And here is my take...

I have been making an effort to finish off layout's using up some older products, so I managed to sneak on some of this rather old paper flowers and I love the little punch of colour it adds to the layout.

I also can;t seem to stay away from adding seam binding tape to my flower clusters :) I love the little " pretty" look it creates..

After creating the watercolour flowers, I used a sharpie fine tip pen to roughly outline the flowers. I tried just using a normal fine tip pen that I used with my journalling, but because of the resist the waxy watercolour created the pen was not working. 

The sharpie worked really well although it takes a lot longer to dry and can be easily smudged. I learnt the hard way..
