Sketchy Boards Challenge MAY

Hi all! I don't know about you, but I love creating layouts about my fur-babies! They provide an awful lot of gorgeous moments to scrap :) This is my precious Dumpling, he's a real character!

This layout was created for both A2Z Scraplets and the MAY challenge at Sketchy Boards Challenge. Here is the sketch and colour inspiration. I didn't have any green laying around (a lot of my room is packed up at the moment awaiting our move) but there is green in the background of the photos!!)

I've used the A2Z Scraplet - Meow, from the  Meow, Purr, Sleep wordlets. It's been coloured in with a yellow ZIG chalk pen and outlined with a black gel pen. The heart is from Kaisercraft, also coloured in with the ZIG pen. The papers are from the Shine Bright collection by Kaisercraft.
This was a real fun sketch to work with, I'm looking forward to seeing what they come up with next month!

I love grunging my layouts up a bit simply by adding some staples, give it a try! 

Until next time, keep calm and craft on!

Truly, Madly, Deeply

Greetings! I hope you've all been well, and creating lots of masterpieces :)
I have a layout here to share with you titled Truly, Madly, Deeply. Sorry for the poor quality of the photo in the layout, it was snapped with my phone at midnight on New Years in the dark. My favourite photo of me and the hubster EVER - even with the dodgy quality :)

I painted the Heart Frame from A2Z Scraplets blue and then coated it in Diamond Dust. Man, I love this stuff! All papers and the title were outlined with a white gel pen, my favourite way to make things 'pop'. Give it a try some time, you won't regret it!

I hope you've been inspired to head to your crafty room! 
Until next time, keep calm and craft on :)
