Outgrown my playpen - CS Sketch 255 & WW1 (layout 379)

Another shout out to The Everyday Scrapbooker who introduced me to Creative Scrappers. I have been following them for a couple of months but this is my first go at one of their sketches. It is sketch 255 and this is the sketch:

Creative scrappers had a twist with this sketch which was to match it with White. . .with1 (blueberry). For those who are not familiar with WW1, they are fabulous to challenge you to use white with only 1 other colour. I am actually a huge fan of WW1 because one of my favorite techniques to use when scrapbooking is using monochrome so I definitely took this as a challenge and this is what I came up with:

To create this layout I used some home-made modeling paste over The Crafter's Workshop Kasbah template and then sprayed tattered angels glimmer mist in sapphire over it. I then layered co-ordinating blueberry shades of paper with a matted photo. I used the glimmer mist (sapphire) on the thickers diy but did two coats to make it a bit deeper.

Supplies used:
Paper: american craft cardstock, pink paislee, unknown
washi tape: unknown dollar store
alphas: thickers
ink: tattered angels (sapphire)
embellies: bo bunny blast off brads, jolee (layered metal), unknown buttons, unknown bling
template: TCW (kasbah)

thank you for stopping by :)

hope you have a great day!!!!
