A winner, an announcement and some Authentique LO's to share...

I owe you a winner for the Magpie Kit Club August Kit giveaway!!!!  The random # generator chose #3....which is JOANNEK!!!!   YAY JOANNE!!!!!!

And I am so excited to announce that I will be continuing on as a DT member at Sketchy Thursdays!!  I just can't get enough of the ST sketches....they are my most fav!!!  Go check out all the other wonderful designers, too!!

OK, and here are some pages that I just want to share, both using Authentique. 



This first I did based on a sketch by Kristin at Memorable Seasons.  I also combined it with a challege at Scrapdango to use hexagons, the color green, and woodgrain or florals on the page.


I create my background, I made a mask for misting using SCAL.  There are some basic shapes in SCAL, and I used the hexagon pattern and arranged them on the 12x12 mat like I wanted them.  I cut the shapes from a 12x12 piece of scrap cardstock and used it as a mask for my background.  The color didn't show up as dark as I wanted, so I went back over some of the areas with a light brown ink.



Have you ever read "A Sense of Wonder", by Rachel Carson???   Love that book....

This next page I created because I am making a kit to sell at my LSS using Authentique paper.  The two layouts shown here and THIS ONE will all be included in the kit.



At first this page felt a little simple to me, but then I popped up some of the diamond paper and added buttons, and I was really happy with it!


It is so strange how my perception of feeling of what "family" is has changed with each child that I have had.

OK, so that was just a quick share!  I am working on a lot of things to share over the next couple of weeks....
