Once a month, or when we can, my friend Gemma & I set each other a sketch which should include an element of that persons choosing. This month was Gemma's turn. She chose this sketch and said we had to include some bling
I looked through my photos and decided on two photos from my pre Christmas trip to London with my friend Nicola. The photos were taken in the toy department in Harrods where I was in Hello Kitty Heaven!
I used a piece of 7 Dot Studio paper mounted onto pink card as my base which had a cool brick and mist effect on it. I decided to draw colours from the Elton John style Kitty (which I wished I'd brought) for my layout using papers from Echo Park, American Crafts and Dear Lizzy. On the reverse of the blue Echo Park paper were some chalkboard speech bubbles so I decided to cut two to add to my clusters.
For my title I didn't have enough letters to make the title I wanted to use so I decided to colour some white Thickers with some Picked Raspberry Distress Paint I had just brought. Even though they are a bit patchy the colour matches perfectly.
While trying to decide what bling to use I came across a pink flourish I've had for ages. As I was holding over my paper trying to figure out how to use it I noticed a section of it resembled a heart, so I cut it apart and used this on the layout.
