Midnight Madness DT- MMSC113

It's that time again, time for a new sketch at Midnight Madness.


Enter one style or both this week.

Just have fun and come play with us :)

I had so much fun with this week's sketch, I just loved the layout. I chose to alter a Composition Notebook using the sketch as my layout, and I just love the way it turned out.
I used some K&Company paper from my Mega Stack, which I totally LOVE! I paired it up with Tilda Gone Fishing and Edwin Waiting for Fish, I love these two images together and think they are just adorable. They can both be bought at Simon Says Stamp, our weekly sponsor,

I used lots of Petaloo embellishments on my project. I used foam letters from their Color Me Creative Collection for the word "dream". They started out as white foam letters. I first stamped them using my Tim Holtz French Script stamp in Walnut Stain Distress ink. Then, I sprayed them all with Pink Taffy Glimmer Mist, and then edged them again with Walnut Stain. I LOVE the way they came out, so soft and pretty and perfect match for this journal!!!
I also added lots of Petaloo flowers, Assorted Flower Layers from the Color me Mine collection, to the journal, following the sketch. Again, they start out white so you can alter them with a variety of mediums to match your project perfectly! I sprayed mine with Pink Taffy, Lemon Zest, Carmel Apple, and Tattered Leather Glimmer Mists. Then I added some large bling to the centers to finish it off!
Petaloo is our amazing monthly sponsor, and they have an amazing prize for this month's winner.
