Thank Goodness for the BIG Flower! & Let's Get Sketchy

Today, I have a new layout to share using the April Kit from Artful Delight!  I can't share this page, without telling you about the huge mistake I made on it, when I was more than 95% finished.  I decided I wanted to add a few...just a FEW...drops of Heidi Swapp Color Shine to the right hand side of the page.  Well, for some stupid reason, I was holding the bottle right over the layout and tipped it a little too far when I took the spray nozzle out, to make my drips.  A huge glob of the Color Shine dumped all over the page. I think I sat there in shock for about 10 minutes after it happened, because I really loved this page and wasn't about to trash it or start over.  My first thought was, just leave that way.  But I had a problem.  About a 1.5 inch section of the White thread in my Baker's Twine bow had been turned Yellow...and it wasn't looking so hot.  So, I decided to take on of the large Prima flowers that came with the Kit and just plop it right over the Color Shine spot.  It covered the mist and the piece of the Baker's Twine I needed to hide.  I am just so GLAD, that the bottle wasn't directly over my photos when the spill occurred.  Fortunately, I was able to fix it and still ended up liking the end result of the layout.

So next you have an "accident" occur on your layout or project, look for creative ways to fix it or make it a part of what you were already doing.  Most of the time, no one will ever even know it was there!

If you are interested in purchasing this month's Kit, make sure you head over to the Artful Delight Blog.  I have a feeling this one will go quickly!!  And you can play along with our Layout and Card Sketch this month, for the chance to win a Kit and be an Artful Delight Guest Designer!  


And I also have a second layout to share today!  I am up with my first reveal at Let's Get Sketchy!  You can play along with a new sketch each Monday, and here's what I came up with for this week!

I have to say, that I am completely in love with the Nautical trend.  I used the Uncharted Waters collection from Glitz Design on this layout, and Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm and Fancy Pants Down by the Shore also have some really cute Nautical themed embellishments and papers.  I layered papers and several different types of embellishments on my layout to create texture.  And I wanted to add a touch of modeling paste to my layout so I used one of The Crafter's Workshop masks.  That cute Anchor is a cut file created by my scrappy friend Heather Landry.  You can find several Free cut files on Heather's Blog, Miracles Momma Designs.

Supplies:  Patterned Paper & Paper Garland:  Glitz Design; Wood Veneers:  Studio Calico & Freckled Fawn; Spray Mist:  Studio Calico; Washi Tape:  Love My Tapes; Flair Button: Ormolu; Modeling Paste:  Liquitex; Mask:  The Crafter's Workshop; Anchor Cut File:; Other:  Shipping Tag
