Scraps of Darkness & Sketches: Creatively Yours ~ Poolside Diva

This is sketch 4-12 from Sketches: Creatively Yours.  Ann Seleshanko, our senior designer, designed this beauty.  I hope you get the chance to come by and see what the rest of the DT created.
Here is what I made using the sketch.  I used the tropical, January "Escape" kit from Scraps of Darkness.  I was really drawn to those 3 long rectangles in the bg.  So I really put in some details with them, lacing and using some other embellishes.  This is my mom with curlers in her hair right by the side of the pool...somewhere I can always remember her.  This was taken in 1973.
These flowers tucked into the laced up rectangles are Mini Canterbury Petaloo flowers.  I put some tulle behind them and added some Tim Holtz tags to tie off the string.
 I cut apart the Prima Crystal Star Burst putting some pieces here and there.  The large flower is also Prima.  The chip board tickets are Graphic 45.  The pretty stick pin is by Craftysprinkles (romance add-on).


  1. Neat the curlers in her hair photo!

  2. I love the folded corners and the lacing on the background. Beautiful LO!
