Frosted Designs Sketch Blog Hop!



Hello!!! And welcome to my blog! If you are here for the Frosted Designs Sketch Blog Hop, you should have arrived from Sandra's blog! If you are just getting started, go to Frosted Designs and you will find the starting point there!

First of all, thank you to our amazing sponsors: 


Be sure to stop by their blogs and Facebook pages and thank them for sponsoring this blog hop!

For this blog hop, we have given you a sketch and a list of items and techniques to use on a card, layout or off the page project. I chose to do a layout....

 I know what you are saying... this does not look like the sketch! And you are right! For some reason, my layouts aways end up looking completely different from the sketch, but that is okay! That just means that I added my own personality and touches to it!! lol!!

 One of the techniques from the list is inking... certainly had that covered on this one! I also had several of the items listed including: pearls/bling, flowers, chipboard & patterned paper!

Another technique I used was embossing. For the heart and those brown corners, I first dry embossed a piece of kraft paper, inked the edges and then heat embossed them with a clear embossing powder! It's an easy way to make my own embellishments! I also had layering and misting in my list of techniques!

A blog hop would not be complete without a prize! How is this for a prize?
