My Funny Valentine- Sketches In Thyme Guest Maven

Howdy everyone,, how is your week going?
Have you  seen any great stuff from CHA that you just can't live without?
I have been drooling over so many things - it may break my budget!

Today I have my take on Sketches In Thyme #100 and this 
week it is a two page layout. I generally do two pagers unless I only
have enough photos for one. 
I started with white Bazzill and added PP and die cut stickers from Basic Grey's True Love. I also used Gelatos®, Prima stencil, Twine, Tsukineko inks, and all my adhesive is from Glue Dots®. I used Micro Dots for the banner, Pop-Up Dots to give my circle die cuts some dimension, and Ultra Thin Dots for everything else. The scallop circle punch is from Fiskars.
These really cute little banner pieces were on the die-cut sheer. I added them to the paper, put a line of Micro Glue Dots® across the top and layered on two pieces of twine from The Twinery.
For the color on the background, I used a Prima stencil and mixed my Bubble Gum Gelatos® with a little water in a mister to make a spray.  You can find the tutorial for it Here
After misting I used Guava, Bubble Gum and Red Cherry Gelatos® to make a line across the bottom of both pages, then used my finger to blend all the colors together.
For the heart on this side, once I had sprayed the stencil on the other page, I picked the stencil up and carefully flipped it upside down to get an impression from the ink left on the stencil.
Sorry my page looks all wavy! The one thing I don't like about spray inks - they wrinkle my paper up. 

Here is the sketch this week

  1. Anita,
    Mom had a pet racoon but it had to stay outside. It sounds like you really loved your cat. This last year we lost 2, so sweet pets; One-Eyed- Buzzy, a 10 year old rescue Shih Tzu, and our sweet 12 year old Bunny. Its so hard. Your pages are really seeing a bit of your heart. Love it all.
    Thank you for joining us at Word Art Wednesday.
