Dear friends,

Today I would like to share Scrapping Outback's latest challenge! Julie Hill has created this wonderful sketch for you to play with!!! You have to create a layout/card using below sketch and you also have to incorporate a butterfly and a heart to be in the running to win a $15 gift voucher:

Here is my take on this fantastic sketch:


Here is how my layout started:

I took 7 Dots "Love is in the Air" Illusion and covered in Gesso. When dry I went over with texture paste and Automotive gaskets (upcycled mask :), when dry, I covered the lot with Gesso again.
I printed an 8" heart in Publisher, cut it out and used as a mask. While holding paper heart in place I sprayed around it with green and blue glimmermist. I accentuated the heart's outline by drawing it with glimmermist and a paintbrush. Very easy and very arsty way to use your supplies! 7 Dots Studio papers are fabulous with mediums as they are heavy weight and do not seem to buckle!

Here a few closies of my chipboard and other details:

I sprayed Prima blossom with "Atlantic" Glimmermist, so love altering flowers:

The background was created with lots of modelling paste in the background using automotive gaskets, as I run a garage I have plenty of spare parts looking at me all day, the holes in the gaskets are just perfect, my husband was impressed with my upcycling :)
