Paradise Found

Another Challenge lo from Pages In Time.

This was the hardest layout for me of all the challenges. It was a sketch with a twist challenge. The challenge was to use some sort of acrylic on your layout. I've never worked with that before and had a rough go of it.
I had a small piece of a transparent paper that my hubby gave me a couple of days ago that I though might work great for flowers. Unfortunately, My Retro punch wouldn't punch through the plastic. I ended up punching the outlines and cutting them out by hand.
Then finding something that would write on them was the next challenge. Nothing seemed to work very well. I finally tried a set of opaque markers and the flowers were finished. I found out too, that doing layouts to sketches is very difficult for me. I think I'm just to unorganized in my designs to have to follow a sketch. They just seem to planned to me and I didn't like that feeling.
I didn't really care for the layout after it was completed, but it seems to be doing well at the sight.
Thanks for stopping by and remember, "don't be a stranger!" Come on back soon!
