Fresh Air And Sunshine - Created WithTwisted Sketch #138 Twist Fresh Using The Scraps Of Darkness January Kit-Escape

Looking for a great sketch with loads of inspiration? Well, look no further than Twisted Sketches! They have inspirational sketches with a little extra "twist" thrown in for good measure. This week, I used Sketch #138 with the Twist of "Fresh" anyway, anyhow along with my Scraps Of Darkness January Kit-Escape to create the following layout:

I used a photo of me that my DH took while I was on the beach in West Palm Beach Florida. I actually turned the sketch sideways and took my inspiration from it at that angle. For the Twist "Fresh", I journaled "A little fresh air and sunshine, does a girl a lot of good." I don't know about you but I could use a little bit of that fresh air and sunshine just about now! I have had my nose to the grindstone for so long now, I am craving an Escape!!

Here are some close ups of some of the details I created:

 Here I did some punching then folded down the corner and popped in my beautiful Craftysprinkles handcrafted pin, and some of the flowers from the January Flora and Fauna Add On.  If you look close you will see that I fussy cut out some of the fish from the paper and popped them onto the paper behind the photo.

 Here I fussy cut out a Beach Sign from the Graphic 45 paper and layered on some of the seashells from the kit and used some of the fun Pink Paislee Nantucket chipboard arrows from the Romance Add On. I also popped one of my Turquoise Crush Butterflies from my Etsy Shop to add some dimension.

 Here I layered a Graphic 45 Chipboard Frame from the kit onto a piece of the kit paper then added in flowers from the Flora & Fauna Add on, fussy cut leaves from the G45 papers and a G45 tag from the kit with a little ribbon bow tied on. ( Tip-I died white ribbon with the Lindy's Mist from the Color Add On to get a match to my layout).

 I created a floral layer at the bottom corner of the photo, by fussy cutting out flowers from the papers and then layering some on top of each other for dimension and creating a center piece and applying a bling center. I also layered in some copper skeleton leaves from my stash and then took another G45 Chipboard tag and did my journaling on it.

I used a stash die cut, masked and misted a piece of card stock with the Lindy's Mist from the color add on and layered it behind the die cut. I then fussy cut the lady with the umbrella from the G45 paper and tucked her in and then added on some more of those flowers from the Flora & Fauna Add on.

Thanks for Escaping with me and joining me for the Twisted Sketch reveal. I hope you take the time to catch a little fresh air and sunshine for yourself! Just remember it does a girl a lot of good!!! Ahhhhh, I can almost feel it, can you? ~Renea
