Cherish the Memories

Hello everyone,

I am posting after a month..woah...thats a looonnggg time...I have been busy in my professional as well personal life...
Its hard to squeeze in time for crafting at such times...

Well...I have some great news....I am on the Design Team of the awesome scrapbook challenge at Stick-it-Down... This is my first ever stint as a DT member...so I am very excited... :D
Check out the sketch for this month's challenge....
(Psst....I created the sketch for the challenge this month...another first ;) )
We have some awesome creations by the talented Design Team...Be sure to check them out...

I created a scrapbook page with a black cardstock as a base...This is the first time I have created with a dark background...Oh my...so many firsts in this post :P



For the background I took a black cardstock and started drawing rectangles and squares with gelatos...Dont Gelatos look awesome on black cardstock!!??!!...one of the many reasons I love Gelatos...
For the layering papers...I coloured them with the same gelatos and stamped with Archival Ink some stamps and stencils...



Finally I applied some gesso along the edges of the page with my fingers...I like the effect...

                        

Hope you like this scrapbook page...
I would love to hear your comments and suggestions...
