Yay! I'm a Twisted Sister





I'm so happy to be joining one of the bi-weekly DT teams for Twisted Sketches. I've been a fan and a user of these sketches for a while now and am thrilled that they like my work.

This is my entry for the sketch, #114 with a 'vintage' twist, that I used as a main theme for my LO, using a family heritage photo, muted pp and lots of lovely embellishments, some of which came from my Gottacraft monthly kit - so yum - Cosmo Cricket.

Embellishment clusters are something I have been playing with for a while, having admired many of my crop friends doing it so beautifully. I'm still learning, but am having a huge amount of fun trying. I'm a bit more relaxed about mix and matching, not to mention piling them on when the mood takes me.

Materials used:
Background pp - donated by Sandra B (no idea of the brand), Other pp - Cosmo Cricket, Stickers - Crate Paper, October Afternoon, Making Memories (letters); Ribbon - Maya Road; Lace - Broadway Bargains; Pebble - Prima; Punches - Martha Stewart butterfly, 1" circle ; Clip - 7 Gypsies; Chipboard flower - stamped with Technique Tuesday flower stamps; Brads - foo-fa-la; Chipboard - Crate Paper; Pearl headed pin, gems, ribbon from stash.

Congratulations Ali a well deserved accolade indeed. I so look forward to following your work on Twisted Sister.

(PS the background paper was from the DCWV Green Stack and I'm so pleased it ended up on such a stunning layout!)
