Swirlydoos and Gabi's Sketch!!!

My good friend Gabrielle Pollacco has done a beautiful sketch! I liked it so much that I had to give it a try. I also had just received my lucious, goodie crammed October kit from Swirlydoos, so I decided to use it. This is the original sketch. You can check out Gabi's page on her blog at:http://gabriellepollacco.blogspot.com/2011/10/bo-bunny-i-made-sketch.html




And this is my take on the sketch. I used this picture of our youngest ds and his girlfriend walking just before dark! I had to use the chippie lampost from Kaisercraft! The papers are from Glitz!! And of course the blooms are Prima!
I cut a circle from a piece of cardstock and placed it over the page around the lamp, then I used Studio Calico Mister Huey's mist to make a "glow" around it. The actual lampost is heat embossed with black and platinum embossing powder. Then I used Glitz alpha stickers for the word.
This is detail of the smaller rubon lamp, I placed a small gem for the flame in both and you can also see some of the liquid pearl accents that I used around the scallop circle.
I cut out the birds from the sheets from Glitz! I kept the rest and used several layered as matts.
Here's a closeup of the blooms.
and another of the lampost detail.
I loved this sketch and really had fun doing this page. The Glitz collection is just absolutely stunning and I loved every piece of it! I have plenty of this Swirly kit left and will post more pages later!!!
