Lets Scrap Sketeches: 04-15-17 Middle Earth - Waitarere Beach

Welcome to the second sketch for this month from  'Lets Scrap Sketches' 


using my fav papers from Kaiser craft.

Here is the sketch for your inspiration.


Remember you have 15 days.

The photos for this layout are from a day at Middle Earth - Waitarere beach,  which is a little secret hide away for the residents of the beach. 

A lovely gentleman who lives at the beach has taken time to establish an amazing playground for the kids.  Fly fox, swings, rope climbs to name just a few of the things he has made.  And every time we go back there are new things to play on.  .

Here are a couple of close ups.

Lets Scrap Sketches - 03-15-17 - New Siblings

Hi everyone, welcome again to another Lets Scrap sketches challenge.
  Now for this month's sketch for 'Lets Scrap Sketches' 
Remember you have 15 days.

 Now to create my layout I started with the back ground before I chose the photos. 
This is a little unusual for me.  Anyway I stencilled, inked and stamps the paper. 
And then I picked the photos and embellishments:

 
 I used some glossy accent and beads over the layout as well.
 I love the transparencies as they don't detract from the stencilling


 Hope you like it.  Remember to go have a look at my teamies inspiration. 

And I would love to see creations so remember to leave me a comments
and I will come visit.

Happy crafting
