the twist is to use texture on your layout. I added several areas on my layout. Of course "my" traditional distressing and stitching- i don't do many layouts without these basics. ;) To create the hearts I added gesso on top of a stencil and then added a bit of mist for a pop of color. The flowers each have their own texture as well.

Here is my layout for challenge #49 on the Color Me Scrappy blog. The colors are so pretty! I wanted to keep the layout as light as I could although I used a lot of black on this. Sorry about the awful image.
here is the beautiful color palette! I just want to be wherever this photo was taken. lol
This challenge is also the sketch challenge for the month and here is the wonderful sketch that Lisa created:

Hello~ :) Still no Granddaughter yet. My poor soon-to-be daughter-in-law is more than ready for her arrival. Miss Kaya was due yesterday, but she seems to be content right where she is for now. I guess she'll make her appearance in her own sweet time, or when momma says enough is enough. lol
I played along with the October layout sketch on the Artful Delight blog. I always enjoy creating with the great sketches.
Hello all! :) Today I am here to share the final projects I created this month for The Memory Nest. I was given the fun Glitz Designs Wild & Free collection to work with.
Here is a layout I created:
I cut apart the dream catcher from a sheet of the pp and used it to "catch" the hearts.
and a couple of cards:
these cards are 4x4 and are mostly made using the stickers. Super quick and easy.
Here is the layout I created earlier this month using this great collection:
I have to be truthful- I struggled with this collection. Don't get me wrong, It's a beautiful and fun collection, but it has a lot of "white" space and "tribal" feel to it. I struggle with this, however I am delighted with the layouts and cards I created. I tried to showcase how versatile this collection is and how you can take elements and use them in your own way.
You can find this collection as well as many other fabulous collections when you visit The Memory Nest's online store here. There are some wonderful specials going on now, so head on over there to take advantage of them.
