~* Papercraft Star Challenge #3 - Sketch (My 1st Layout :)!) *~

Hi Everyone!
Sharing with you my first layout :)! I have done some mini scrapbooks, but no full 12x12 layouts (although I did make some old school cut-out-around-the-photo-and-doodle letter size sheets in high school). I used some of my Afternoon Tea photos. I even used some of the photos as embellishments (tea cup and tea pot ornament). Hope you like it!

- Stamps ~ rose stamp

- Paper ~ Kaisercraft
- Inks/etc. ~ Distress Inks, SU!, Crackle Accents, Matte Multi-Medium
- Embellishments ~ Anna Griffin rub-ons and journaling spot, American Crafts flower trim, my handmade tulle flower, Jenni Bowlin felt butterflies and hat pin (I added a pearl to), Maya Road trims, beaded pearl trims and trinket pearls, Prima trim & flower, Prima pearls, satin rosettes, Chatterbox brad, Vintage stickers, Antique corner buttons, lace, manila shipping tag, glass pearls, Thickers, Tombow pen

1. Cut photos at 2-3/4" x 2-3/4".
2. Paint Thickers with paint and distress with inks and pen.
3. Embellish layout.
4. Add Crackle Accents to the tea cup and the tea pot ornament flowers. Add Multi-Medium over the two Crackle Accented pieces and the Thickers.

Thanks for stopping by! Come play with us at Papercraft Star!
*hugs* and Much aloha~!
