I am so sorry that my blog post have been so delayed. My plan was to get this posted as soon as I got home from work, but the events in Norway this afternoon made me set this aside. I fortunately live far from these events, but I suddenly feel a little less safe...
Still - it is Friday, and time for another sketch at Stuck on U Sketches. We have a wonderful sketch again by Nanné this week. I loved working with it (thanks Nanné!!).
This week I have made a layout for my sister in law that she will give away to a friend, so I do not know this baby (hence the disguise...). Little baby girl layouts are great to make anyway, so I had a good time making this.
Patterned papers on this layout is (except the scalloped circle) exclusively scandinavian. I have used papers from three different producers (two swedish and one norwegian). They all have several collections of papers papers in the soft colors that I love so much.
The beautiful paper with roses and swallows is by Papirdesign, a norwegian brand, actually located in the small town where I live. The "text-paper" next to it and the pink paper in the bottom are both from the swedish inkido, but designed by a norwegian card maker - Anne Marte Olaussen, and finally the other strip above the pink paper is from Magnolia.
Title is cut with three layers of storybook, and text frame is spellbinders. Flowers are from Prima, and I have used liquid pearls to make the swirls (and a stencil from my irock tool). Last but not least, I have used a set of clear stamps from pink paislee (butterfly garden) around the page (in victorian velvet). The black birdcage is also from this stamp set!
Hope everyone are having a peaceful summer, and that the world turns right again soon.a
