Sarah's tremendous touch of Grey projects!

This first layout is really awesome





Sarah created this using a Kaisercraft sketch but I just LOVE her interpretation!

I {heart} the tea rings!
She used pieces from the "Art of Life" Collectibles (Embellishments Add-On) and from the Loved paper to create the distressed layering under the photos, as well as some chipboard from her stash - which she painted with black gesso and then embossed with a light dusting of Lindy's Stamp Gang Embossing Powder in Golden Angel Wings (Colour Add-On). After she had completed the layering, but before adding the photos, she splattered the layout with Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst in Opal Sea Oats (CAO). I used photoshop to create the "polaroid" photos - using a polaroid frame template  found online and photos of her son, which she converted to black and white.




To embellish the layout, she wanted to make it look like someone had emptied their pockets onto the "desk", so she added a wooden domino that she distressed with sandpaper, tiny coins taken off an old necklace, a 7 Gypsies vintage safety pin, a metal key and keyhole and some wooden buttons (EAO), which had soaked in tea to alter the colour. She added a Prima Flair button and two Prima mini-clothespins, rubbed with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink, to the photos.


I wanted to show you how diverse Sarah is

her next layout is so girly and funky...


She wanted to prove that pink is not just a girly colour!

For the colour on the layout, she used Lindy's Stamp Gang Starbursts in Bodacious Blush and Cheshire Cat Cherry, along with Colorbox Chalk Inks in Chianti, Peony and Orchid. There are also some splatters of Black Ink. The papers are a combination of Authentique, Fabscraps and Kaisercraft from the SOD February Kit andShe has added in some Petaloo Flowers (Flower Add-On). The large clear gems and decorative wood pieces are from Teresa Collins' Save The Date collection (Embellishment Add-On) and  some clear bubbles and a Prima Flair button from previous SOD kits. Finally, she added some fuschia and white sequins from her stash. Here are some close-ups!
