Tiny Matters

Hey everybody!  It's Wednesday, and you know what that means-a new sketch has been revealed over at Twisted Sketches! The following is Sketch # 114 with the Twist being "Tiny".

The following is my interpretation of the sketch that I created squeezing my Scraps Of Darkness July Kit.  I took the sketch and flipped it 180 degrees Clock Wise and this is what I came up with.

I started with a stash piece of cardstock that I spritzed with some Lindy's Mist. The second layer is a piece of the July Kit pp that I inked and distressed the edges on and then spritzed with the same Lindy's mist and then stamped using a clear stamp and some acrylic paint. The 3rd pp layer is one of those fabulous kit pps that I punched and layered on, and the 4th layer is a piece of corrugated cardboard that I misted, painted using the Twinkling H2O's in this month's color add on, and then Rock Candied to give the chunky look. I then took some cardstock from June's add on, inked and distressed the edges and used them for photo mats.

The photos are of my son, Draven and I took them into Photoshop and gave them a really grainy look to go with the distressed look of the layout. I then took some stash chipboard wings and a heart and painted them using the H2Os and attatched them to the side. 

I then hand drew and cut out some chipboard stars and painted them with the H2Os, then set an eyelet in each of them and hung the "tiny" charms, a camera and a cell phone. Two of my DS's favorite things.  I then took the quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson, “What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us” , and created the journaling and title, and fullfilling the twist of "tiny". The chipboard letters were from my Scraps of Darkness May kit, and I painted them using the H2Os, ran them through my Xyron and adhered them to the Corrugated piece.

For some interest in the corners, I took some blue eyelets, set those with my Crop A Dile and then laced and twisted copper wire through them.

Thanks for taking a peek at my interpretation of this weeks Twisted Sketch! Hope you can find the time to play along, and if you do, drop me a comment. I would love to check it out! ~Renea
