Room for the Unimaginable - with Emma Zappone

 Hello SC friends.
Emma with you all today. I have been loving the projects coming through featuring this months mood/sketch. Amazing!! Loving all the Travellers Notebooks too. I'm hoping to start this weeks prompt today. Today's share though is featuring the sketch part of the mood board. I chose to pull the orange tone out of the moodboard also. This Layout is made as an 8"x8".

I used some great products to play along with the sketch, let's just refresh our minds of this months mood/sketch..........

Oh and I flipped the sketch! 
And I decided to place my title at the top of my design for reasons I will mention later in my blog.
Right now lets talk about what product is found on this mini layout.

After I had layered some rubons from my stash, I grabbed the beautiful  'Elegance' stencil by Aall & Create and with a makeup sponge dabbed Dina Wakley's Buff acrylic paint through it. This created a beautiful soft shadow over the patterns on the page. I did this both top and bottom of the page.

I then took one of the little script stamps by Aall & Create and with Stazon 'Spiced Chai', stamped rhythmically over the same area as the stencil. The stamping was also blended out through the page.

My paper elements needed to be small to match the image and the size of the overall project. So I tore some book paper to mount my image on and then chose a few pieces from an Ephemera Pack of Tim Holtz's. These are full of different shapes and make for great tucking and layering.

This stunning Mould that Kylie sent me is painted with another one of Dina Wakley's paints this time in 'Elephant'. Once dry I rubbed Metallique Wax - 'Bronze Age' very lightly to only pick up the raised parts of the mould. This is why I chose to move my title as I really wanted this mould to shine on it's own. I finished the page with a few more elements from my stash and then flicked watered down 'Dried Marigold' Distress Crayon and Dylusions Ink Spray 'Ground Coffee' to bring all the elements together.

I hope this has inspired you to have a go of the months sketch and make it your own.

Have fun creating everyone. I will see you all next week.

Stay safe, Em xx
