~ Sketchy Thursdays: Spring Challenge Blog Hop & Create 10 Day 1 ~

After much hesitation (just the fact that I'm so short of time these days), I enrolled with Crafty Templates Create 10 class. A class that contains 10 projects for 10 days. So far, what I like about it is that fact that techniques are taught, not just mere scraplift of a LO. So I started with Day 1, took the techniques and produced a LO based on a sketch by Sketchy Thursdays.

I played with a Spring Challenge Blog Hop sketch on Sketchy Thursdays. The blog is part of a group of blogs involved in a Spring Blog Hop, only for this week. Here's the sketch:

Here's my LO incorporating techniques from Create 10 Day 1 and the sketch: 

LO created using Studio Calico April kit. 

A closeup of the handmade flowers, sprinkled with a bit of sticklers and a gem in the centre.

I placed a large lace on the paper and sprayed it with Cosmic Shimmer. This resulted in a lacey background. My bunting, stamped and cut out.

Had fun making this LO. One of my fav I reckon! TTFN!
