Missing you Today

Sandra here again with my second layout from the "Hello" kit

--This layout is out for publication-- 

 With all my layouts this month I went to PageDrafts for a kick start
for this layout I used sketch number 46

To create the background I diluted the IZINK ink in water and put it in a spray bottle and lightly misted the background.

Then using the awesome stamps in the kit  and the mango gelato I stamped the background.  (spray the stamp with water before adding the gelato to create a delicious water colour affect)

using a paint brush and adding a stronger solution of IZINK and water I dropped a few drops next to the stamped spots and also spread it around with the paint brush.

Dry with a heat gun.

I then painted and sprayed the background with both diluted IZINK and mango Gelato.
Dried with a heat gun and then stamped with randomly with a script stamp and doodled a border.
Then I created the layout.

the flowers I made with one of the pieces of white cardstock.. I coloured them with IZINK and mango Gelato.
The paper twine was wrapped around a skewer to give a cute little twirl.

I added some celadon ink to the title and then used the TINBY METALLIC MELTS to create a beautiful texture and colour, added some punched butterflies and some journaling and  it is complete.

I enjoyed playing with the IZINK and the Gelatos and discovering different ways to use them.

Well that is it from me for now until next time with another layout to share. :-)


  1. This is amazing Sandra! Love how you've stamped and painted the background. And, yet again, you've come up with a great idea for that paper twine!

  2. A beautiful dog and a faithful friend remembered with the background you created for him and the hand made flower. He reminds me of the working dogs we had on the farm when I was a kid :D

    1. Thank you Helen.. yes he was a very faithful and loyal friend.. thank you for your kind words.. and got to love those working dogs... :-)
