Love Always Layout | Stuck?! Sketches April Challenge 2016


Hi Everyone,
My layout today is of my beautiful sister Megan, who passed away in Jan 2016  this photo was taken just after Megan was diagnosed with cancer. We had a girls weekend up the coast and I will forever treasure those memories of our wonderful weekend with our besties, I just wish I had taken more photos, sadly we thought we would have more time with Megan, but her cancer was so aggressive and took hold so quickly.
 I look at this photo and other from the weekend and all the memories from that weekend come flooding back to me and one thing that I remember the most is Megan kept smiling all weekend.
This is why taking photos and recording your memories is just so important.

I have been sick with pneumonia for the last few weeks and so with lots of time to browse the internet, rather than shopping online,
I thought I would get browse some challenge sites for inspiration.
I came across this sketch from Stuck?! Sketches and used it as my inspiration for my layout

here are a couple of steps on how my background was created

layer all the paper pieces and mark their placement

I  used the Ultimate Crafts Magnolia Lane Damask Frame die to create a mask for adding texture paste

while the texture paste was still wet I sprinkled on some Couture Creations ultra fine iridescent glitter

some close ups

Make sure you stop by Stuck?! Sketches Blog and see all the fabulous layouts others have created using their sketch

 Happy Creating
