The Scrappiest Sketch 81 - test drive


Here's this week's Scrappiest Sketch 81 
up & running . 



I realised today I've never tried making my own "patterned paper" 
/cardstock backgrounds using mediums yet . 
So here's my first test drive 
using Glimmer Mists & Glimmer Glam. 



The gold glitter from the Golden Goddess Glimmer Glam 
shows up nicely here. 
I tried to follow the curves in the sketch & cut out the CC Delovely patterned papers 
freehand for a fun touch . 


I think I just could do this more often -
creating my own backgrounds on white cardstock - 
that oughta use up the spray ink / mediums just a little bit more ! ;)

Wow Pearl, your patterned paper turned out great!!! Perfect free-style cutting too! It was this aspect of the sketch that intimidated me from giving it a go. Loving this colourful LO! :)

This is beautiful, Pearl! Fabulous take on that sketch. I love the background paper you created. Hard to believe it was originally white. Did you have any trouble with your paper warping with all that treatment? It always seems like my papers warp when I use the mist, although I love them anyway.
Love your freehand wavy cuts with the Delovely paper and I love the crinkled ribbon treatment, too.
