As long as I was working with The Scrappiest sketches, I thought I'd try working on Sketch #70, too. I have been going in and out all day - such a gorgeous day! I was gardening this morning and finishing off the last flower bed I had to work on. So I'd scrap a little, garden a little. All days should be this lovely!
Graphic 45. Their challenge was to use papers from their Transatlantique collection. Such fabulous papers!! I used pictures from when we were in the port of Malta on our Mediterranean Cruise. The streets were so quaint in Malta. Everyone had a gate between their heavy door (and these were some heavy doors!) and the screen door. The ladies open their screen door and lean on the gate to chat with neighbors. How wonderful is that?!
crackle paint. Oh, the crepe ribbon and handmade flower also have crackle paint on them. The luggage, words, and stamps were cut from paper. In order to give the luggage a more realistic look, I put glossy accents on the straps and edges. Fun, old fashioned paper that suited these pictures well!
