I used Tim Holtz distress stains,
just splatter by hitting it down on the page, dry some then do others and gently mist with water . Move page around to allow  water to run.
Baby wipes are essential  for cleaning  excess.
These are 3 individual photos  taken on sport mode,
 I just love how they join up.

230 CSI



Decided to  work with a black background which gives the colours a totally different  look.
Because I wanted  to use these photos  that work with  the transport theme, 
It meant  I had to give it a strong base.
The colours are very  vibrant so I made  lavender the dominant  one to contrast  with  the photos. 
For the   evidence 
Transportation 
Flowers
Stars
Phrase stickers
Testimony is a road trip 




Can you recognize the  sketch?
Yes I had to adjust it slightly!
But the bones are there!

Kraftplus May



So much inspiration  for this exciting  challenge! 
Would you believe that I used  an old template from my early days of scrapbooking  to create  these octagons. They are certainly not perfect but the  process was fun!




I crochet little  flowers, add them to my stash and use them as needed! 

I got a book of Tim Holtz idea-ology word stickers which is full of interesting quotes!

229 CSI challenge


The photos look better in relity🤔
But what a great sketch really easy to use.
I love adding that small photo as its usually a larger  one and I cut it down, focusing on the subject!
I have used clouds
Plain cardstock 
Stamped stripes and arrow heads
Something loopy  is the thread tucked under the flowers 

I talked about our summer holiday in NZ.

Stuck Sketches April 1

Great sketch from stucksketches.blogspot.com!
I had abit of fun with this tracing alphabet on to black with a white gel pen.

Dabbing ink onto a black and white print

And sewing  the heart to pull all the elements together creating a unity.
