Studio Calico Sunday Sketch

I think I was both shocked and kind of freaking out, when Studio Calico asked me to make something for the Sunday Sketch.  You can see the layout and the card sketch here.  I used Lisa's sketch.  I knew when I saw the sketch, what photos I wanted to do and the title.  
I used the ampersand which is part of the Neverland Project Life cut file elements, and the Neverland Printables here.  Since I was doing a layout about the Disney fairies, I used vellum to do the print and cut with the printables.  I use vellum sold in packs at Office Depot and have an inkjet printer.  Worked great.  I did the registrations marks to print from the Silhouette Studio, like you normally do.
 Then sent it through the Silhouette to cut.  
I used the new Studio Calico chevron mask, I got from the Noel Mignon Daffodil Hill Kit two ways.  I masked and misted on white cardstock, cut it to be a matte for the main photo.  Then mixing two gelato colors together with modeling paste, I spread it in sections on the background.  I have used different mediums before, but finally used a 40% from Michael's and bought the modeling paste...and so glad I did.  I could not believe how beautiful it really looks in person and dried so fast.
Did a lot more misting on some of the wood veneers.  Then on the others, I used the gelatos again to give an ombre look.
I am so glad I had this sketch and Lisa's Truesdell's layout to inspire this.  I haven't started on the Disney World Project Life yet, but I know I will have lots of layouts to add to it.
Hope everyone had a great weekend.  We have been doing something everyday for the past few days, and decided yesterday to stay home, because this afternoon we are going to see Yo Gabba Gabba!  That will be a fun layout to make if I can get some good pictures.  Have a great week!

One last thing, a special thanks to Cassie the owner of Paper Issues...she knows how to give you your scrappy fix.  When I wasn't sure what I was going to do for this sketch, I got my big order from her filled with lots of Studio Calico, but I was also able to order more from her, and she got it to me in just two days!  Thanks Cassie!
