SOUS Reveal Day!


Another 2 weeks has flown by and it's time for another Stuck on U Sketches reveal!
First go click on the link above to see Nanne's original sketch-it's so versatile and classic!
A dear friend asked me to scrap this charming vintage family photo and this sketch was perfect for it! I had to swap the vertical pic for the horizontal but otherwise stayed pretty true to the sketch. I love how the kids are so sweet and happy in the pic-so many vintage photos have that "frozen" look about them.

She loves laces and trims so I gladly raided my stash and I love how it turned out! The latest issue of Scrap365 magazine had articles on using lace and pearl dots so I decided to encorporate both..

The fountain is a Dusty Attic piece that I painted with gesso and highlighted with silver and pink metallic watercolor from the Flying Unicorn Store. The papers are spanking new Kaisercraft Lakehouse and they are so lovely and elegant.

Some close ups:


Thanks for stopping in!
Be sure to check out the rest of the DT's creations then link yours to the SOUS site so we can see what you create!
