Sketches With A Twist - August Challenge

The new August sketch is up over at SWAT! This one's all about the circles.

August Sketch (designed by me) - the August twist is to use mists or paint. 
Make sure you pop on over and check out all the awesome creations by the Design Team. 

This layout nearly did my head in. Seriously, I struggled with it soooo much. 
Not because of the sketch, but because of the colours and what I had visualised in my head. I just couldn't get it to materialise on the layout. In the end, I settled for this - it's close to what I wanted, and who's going to know the difference? 
I used Tattered Angels Glimmermists on a Heidi Swapp mistable board to create my background. The flowers and leaves are canvas mistables from Prima. I misted (and painted) all of these with Glimmermist. Then I finished off with some Zva Creative rhinestones and flourishes; Maya Road transparency doilies; a little stamping around the edges; and a Kaisercraft sentiment rub-on. 


  1. How beautiful. You always have the prettiest tones!

  2. Wow Jules your layout looks amazing.. I love the colors.. and thanks for such a great sketch to work with.. I really enjoyed this sketch..

  3. Jules this is such a beautiful layout. The black balances out the bold colors beautifully and adds such an elegance to the design and I love the misting and gradient effect of your background. xx
