Sketchy Thursdays GDT ~ Girly Girl.

I felt a little out of sorts today after being cooped up indoors through the sun abandoning us! To try & cheer up my day I decided a layout was in order & I felt like trying something new. Above is the sketch I used for inspiration. It is the guest design team sketch from Sketchy Thursdays. So I decided to try out masking. Mists are the latest addition to my stash & I really love the effect they have. I don't own any masks so I improvised. I used these die cut letters from Basic Grey's Oh Baby Girl collection. I must admit I have seen masking & misting in the past & felt a little overwhelmed, but my layout turned out just great. It is completely different to what I normally create & this great title was achieved in three simple steps.
Step 1 ~ Title Placement

I held my letters in place with some small pieces of tack.

Step 2 ~ Simply Apply Mist

Step 3 ~ Leave to dry & remove.

And here is my finished page!

I had to scrap this photo, my hair never looks this good! I am about 25 percent girly so this page is totally out or the norm for me. Don't get me wrong I'm not a tom boy but I am just not a girly girl either. So when I went out for my friend's birthday at the weekend & my hair was all done I decided to take a quick snap shot to remind me how I should look. I say should because I am just not willing to become a slave to my hair straighteners for an hour a day. Especially when I could be scrapping instead!
