It's a Sketchy Challenge: Sept 2012

Today, I posted the September sketch in the Canadian Scrapbooker's It's a Sketchy Gallery!

Here it is:

And here's my layout, based on the sketch:

Supplies:  Bazzill cardstock, KaiserCraft patterned paper and stickers; Basic Grey alpha stickers, Martha Stewart Crafts and EK Success punches; Tim Holtz Distress ink; Glossy Accents; Glue Dots; Fiskars foam adhesive; Pentel pen; The Twinery twine; unknown watercolour paints.

Journaling reads:  
Always happiest while retrieving, Simon loved the freedom granted when we hiked the Bruce Trail ~ Oct 1998

I fussy cut the trees from a piece of patterned paper - parts of each tree are glossy so it adds a bit of sheen to the page:

The banner is handmade from scalloped circles, punched from various papers and then folded over the twine and held in place with Glue Dots (I use those babies for EVERYTHING!).  I then mounted the banners on foam adhesive for some dimension and strung it across the top of the page:

As a final touch, I coated each of the hearts in the banner with Glossy accents so they would seem epoxy-like:

If you play along with the sketch this month, upload your layout in the gallery into the September Sketch section here, and then link up below using Linky Tools (email me at sue{AT}canadianscrapbooker{DOT}ca if you have trouble).  Not only do you have a chance to be published in an upcoming issue*,  but at the end of the month, I will randomly draw a winner from the comments here of those who participated for a copy of the Fall 2012 issue!

* For a chance to be published, your layout must be uploaded in the Sketchy gallery for September, and must contain at least one Canadian manufacturer, which must be listed in the description of your upload.
