You are so very Sweet - Scrap Around the World January Challenge

Hello Everyone

We are having a scorcher today and very soon I hope to go and have a dip in the pool! I just came back from a walk with Joe and the dogs to the park, and I am soooooo very hot! ;-)

I have a post to share with you and it's for the Scrap Around the World January Challenge here. It has such a super, soft mood board.

I chose to use the colouring from this board for my page.

This is our new puppy Blossom, she is a Border Collie and is so very precious.  We got her on the 05th Jan and she is now 7 weeks old. She has been such a breath of fresh air to our home, as well as chaos and destruction!!!! ;-) LOL....but we love her dearly and she gets on really well with Rosie.

I used the Love You Madly collection from Glitz Design.

I did a lot of gesso layers, stencilling, watercolouring, sponge painting, stamping and then lots of layers.

Some close-ups for good measure.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
I hope you have a super afternoon!

  4. What a super layout Denise. Not sure which is looks the best your layout or Blossom- hard choice.I eventually tried my hand at Gesso and stencils and used the same one which you have used here.
