My First Page for 2013 and Skissedilla

Hi Fellow bloggers!!! If you would like to enter my birthday giveaway go -------> here!!!

I have been scrapbooking here and there over the past few weeks, mostly having a play and experimenting, you know when you don't really think things through - no holds barred. Anyway after alot of mess I finally got a few finished. So here is my first page finished for 2013. A page about me, something you don't see very often and i am wearing a hat, another not so often thing, lol. I used the Tropicana Collection from Kaiser, which was a treat from my partner. It was sweet that he came home from work with a great big pile of products to get my mojo started. Anyway here it is...

As you can see there is lots of layering, misting, stamping and texture paste. I also added splashes of Prima and Green Tara.
Something else i managed to finish was a page i did using the sketch from Skissedilla. This is the first time i have ever created a page with their sketches and i had so much fun with it. I vaguely followed the sketch, i hope you can see!

I created the background myself by doodling, i was inspired a little by Zentangle, then misted with Glimmermist. Then i layered, painted, doodled until i was happy with it. Here is a little close up of my cherub and the piece of card i recycled onto my layout.

Here is the sketch  i used.

Okay so that is it from me, enjoy your weekend and TFL!!
