The Great Outdoors

With all this cold weather I needed a little extra warmth this week so I pulled out a photo from our summer trip a couple years ago.  I took Peggy's sketch from January's Sketch & Dare Challenge and turned it into a layout!!

 I used the Lilac as part of my embelishment clusters to bring focus to the photo.  Peggy's Dare is to use texture on your die cut...oh how I love some texture!!! 

After I cut the Lilacs from pattern paper I added a touch of ink to the edges then added some Glass Beads for texture.

I used a clear medium to adhere the glass beads allowing the color of the paper to show through while making the color pop a bit more!

In case you didn't hear the news we are having a Design Team Call,
be sure to pop over and check it out!!
