Love is Beautiful - Sketchabilities and SATW June mood board


I took this photo of my son Adam and his lovely girlfriend Isabel at the Italian restaurant where we were celebrating his 20th birthday. I used the current sketch from Sketchabilities :

and the mood board from Scrap Around the World - I was inspired by the word 'love' and the lovely flowers in the pictures:



I LOVE Karan Gerber's sketches and this one is no exception. I kept very close to the sketch as it is so cool! My papers are a combination of Kaisercraft's Kaleidoscope collection and 'Springtime' papers from 'Inkido' which I was lucky enough to win in a sketch challenge over at the 'Scrap 365' blog :)
I painted my background with water colours before inking and spraying random areas.


I layered a heap of papers, transparencies, tags and labels to make an interesting mat for my photo, keeping to a floral theme to match the mood board. I added a single white 'prima' flower to the corner of the photo and highlighted it with a bling flourish.
The title word 'beautiful' is from 2crafty. I have heat embossed it with white embossing powder.


I added my journaling on type-written strips to complete my page. Thanks for calling in today - do check out both these awesome challenge blogs and try out their challenges. They have great prizes and guest DT positions up for grabs! Hope you are having a great weekend!
