Here is my take on our October Sketch featuring Magenta, Clearsnap, Sakura and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L. I was totally inspired by my beautiful friend Christy Riopel, who passed away on August 21. As I created this layout using her techniques and tips and tricks – I found a little bit of healing. Through the tears many many many wonderful memories emerged – thank you Christy for so much. I miss you like crazy.
SUPPLIES: Creative Scrapbooker Super Stock, Core’dinations ColorCore cardstock, Canson Mixed Media paper, Clearsnap Stephanie Barnard sprays and dye ink, Clearsnap ColorBox stylus and white foam tips, Magenta stamps and stencils, Sakura Expressionist oil pastel black crayon and pen, Imagine Crafts irRESISTible Pico Embellisher, unknown black paint, gesso, chipboard alphabet and tissue paper, Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L E-Z Runner and 3D Foam Squares.
I had lots of fun spraying my Clearsnap Stephanie Barnard sprays to create the background
Mixing and spraying using Magenta stamps and stencils!
I added lots of Sakura oil pastel Expressionist – for all the shadowing. These are lots of fun to play with!
Stuck everything together with my E-Z Runner and 3D Foam Squares from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L

Beautiful! I have been retracing some of Christy’s articles in CS and having a go at techniques she taught.
