Gold Fever and February Sketch with Leonie Neal-Dawson

Hello from Scrapping Clearly.
 Leonie with you today on this Valentines Day.
Today I have a little inspiration for our readers using our February Sketch. 
You can join in with this challenge for a chance to win a $30 Store voucher. Upload your entries HERE.
It's a lovely multi-photo sketch with plenty of room for Journalling designed by DT member Peg Hewitt.

I've taken a fair bit of creative licence with this one as you can see below! In place of the title I used another photo and in place of the two photos I added a heap - err well 7 actually- albeit quite small photos but they take up the same space as in the sketch.  Do you follow a sketch down to the last flower or do you like to change things around a little? I like to use them as a guide and they certainly do help to get things started. It can make creating so much easy especially if you are stuck for a beginning place. 

After laying out my photos it was just a matter of finding all the pretty decorative pieces I wanted to add to my page. I went with a Gold theme, inspired by the golden glow in my main photo.
I've been using the Fancy Pants 'Golden days' collection over recent weeks and there were some gorgeous gold accented embellishments in the range. The Golden Days puffy Stickers title and the acetate flourishes are from the Ephemera pack, and a button from the Flair Button pack.  

The layered Die-Cut borders including that gorgeous glittery scallop are by Teresa Collins. If you're a fan of Teresa Collins products the Scrapping Clearly store has a fabulous collection of her products HERE.  

In my recent Design Team Pack Kylie sent me a pot of Vicki Boutin's Golden Glaze.
Have you seen or used this product before? Wow!! It is so lovely to use, I spread it through a stencil
and love the result, it dried with a beautiful shiny gold finish.
I also watered down some of the glaze and used it to add some splashes and drips of gold to my page.
Because I hadn't seen this product before I did a little YouTube surfing, as you do, and found a heap of different uses for this glaze so I will definitely be playing with this product again.
You can see Vicki herself using the glaze here and of course, it's available HERE in the Scrapping Clearly Store.

Lastly I used puffy Dot Stickers and phrases from the Ephemera pack and Cork Stickers to embellish my cluster of smaller photo's

That's it from me today.
Happy Love Day to all and remember to add your take on this sketch to our album on Facebook.
