I'm excited to share that I will be staying on for another term at Purple Pumpkin as their sketch designer. Here is my layout for the April sketch challenge.
I live about an hour from Washington DC, known for its Cherry Blossom trees in the Spring. This year the weather has been cold and the blossoms have not opened yet. Thousands of people visit this time of year to see the spectacular site along the Tidal Basin. I have to admit that I have lived in Maryland my whole life and have never been downtown to see the trees. The picture in my layout was taken years ago by my daughter.
I got a little creative with my background and did some misting, inking and stamping. To create the sky effect I combined some blue acrylic paint with water in a spray bottle. Just as effective as mists, but a lot cheaper!
Love this cute cloud fabric button from Purple Pumpkin!
I inked it a little to blend in with my blue background.
I added some sead beads to my flowers and added a touch of yellow paint.
My cluster includes a pink doily and fabric flower button from Purple Pumpkin.
I hope you will join us for the April Sketch Challenge. Here is the sketch I created:
Check out all of the details and prizes here.
Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend.
It's been chilly here, but today temps are suppose to reach the 60's and tomorrow the 70's!
Thanks for stopping by!
