Happy :) - Stuck?! - Celebr8 Chit Chat

Hi there, Happy Women's Day for those who live in South Africa.  I hope to resume normal blogging next week.  A short update on how our newest addition to the family is doing.

This morning my dressing table became an impromptu cave for Stefan and Bella. 

Yup...this house sure belongs to them..and they are a handful.

I am playing along with the latest August 1 Stuck?! sketch challenge.  I am loving Laura Whitaker's sketches...they suit my style so very well.  I used the beautiful Celebr8 Chit Chat collection and a photo of Bianca and Stephen.  Here it is:

Supply list:  Patterned papers:  Celebr8 Chit Chat; Cardstock:  American Craft; Chipboard:  Celebr8; Wood Veneer:  Simple Stories; Brads: Simple Stories, Celebr8; Buttons:  Celebr8;  Bow paper clip:  Illustrated Faith; Twine: WeR Memory Keepers; Ink:  Tim Holtz Distress Ink; Other: Anita's gloss, Teddy Glitter; Stencil: Tim Holtz; Rosette Die cut:  Silhouette Studio.

The Sketch:

Some close ups:
 The title Chippie is from Celebr8...I painted it with acrylic paint and then covered it with glossy accents and sprinkled glitter onto the "happy".

 The rosette was cut with the Silhouette Cameo and then I added the ampersand wood veneer and made a sprinkling with brads.

 I picked up the blue from the patterned papers and added some distress ink through a Tim Holtz stencil.

I love that this patterned papers already have already got paint splatters.
