Reflections ~ DT reveal ScrapFIT Workout #63 Sketch

For Workout #63 at ScrapFIT, we had the privilege to work with a fabulous sketch by the oh so talented Diana Fisher. 

As our in house Creative Trainer, Diana, has drawn out this workout with your best fitness results in mind! She knows the importance of inspiration when it comes to working out, and that was her goal when she created this sketch for you! Join in the fun with us by creating a layout based on this sketch!

I scrapped this wonderful older photo of our daughter, Elizabeth, back when we lived in North Carolina. I enjoyed using these wonderful papers by g.c.d. studios from the Antiquities line.

Diana's Fab Sketch:

As you can see, I rotated the sketch.

I hope you're inspired to join us in this Workout at ScrapFIT by creating and linking a paper project based on Diana's lovely sketch for a chance to win this fabulous prize sponsored by Paper Quirks! Be sure to stop by her Etsy shop to see her stunning flowers and die cuts!! 

I'm looking forward to seeing the projects you create with this sketch. Be sure to link your project at ScrapFIT


Background Gesso/Stamping/Misting ~ I dry brush painted spots of gesso on my focal paper then stamped and misted in two colors. I was so thrilled to find that my stash held this perfect sentiment for my title.

Vintage Handkerchief Mat ~ As I was working on this page, I discovered a basket of vintage handkerchiefs at a thrift store. I quickly bought up several lace edged hankies and cut the corner out of this one to mat my photo. I added adhesive backed pearls to each flower center in the lace edge. 

Hand Crafted Flowers ~ created with the Donna Salazar Rose Creations die set and more g.c.d. studios Antiquities paper inked with Ranger Distress Ink to add color and dimension. I finished them off with a pearl brad center. 

Blinged Jewelry Finding ~ I found this jewelry focal piece in the clearance bin and added clear crystal beads which I alcohol inked pink to coordinate with my flowers and focal paper. 

Lace ~ I found a gorgeous length of beaded, sequined bridal lace fabric at JoAnn's (of course marked down in the remnant bin) around Christmas. I fussy cut this section which fit perfectly into the corner of my layout. 

Grungy Punched Border ~ I use a variety of small detailed punches randomly around the edge of my focal paper, then tore between the punched images. I used dark ink against the white doilies and lace, then used white ink on the edges against the blue background paper.

Paper Doilies ~ I cut up a small circle and heart doilies to place behind my grungy punched edges and the half heart that was left is tucked under my flower cluster. 

Stitching ~ I stitched a double wave border around the edge of my focal paper inside the punched edge. 

Mat Strips ~ I used a couple different techniques here. I tore/inked some of the strips, while fussy cutting the blue "lace" strip.

Bling ~ I used mini glue dots to adhere the rhinestone bling around the clock image. 

Thanks for dropping by. I treasure your comments!
