Sketch Three - Michelle Perry

Welcome to a the new sketch for this fortnight from our new guest artist Michelle Perry! Here is what Michelle had to tell us about herself -
am a single mum of 2 boys, I live in Country SA along the River Murray.
I’ve been Scrapbooking since 2002, I became hooked instantly and was invited to teach at a local Scrapbooking store 6 months later, I have been teaching classes in various stores, and am now teaching at all SA Stamping and Scrapbooking Fairs held regularly at venues around SA. I am on the Design Team for the NZ site ‘Paper Pesto’ and am a guest DT member for ‘Scrapapple’. I have been published in all Australian Scrapbooking magazines and I run the Aussie Pub Calls Scrapbooking Blog.

Here is Michelle's inspiration layout from her sketch, stunning isn't it!

....a bit of a detail shot on Michelle's layout showing the gold heat embossing on the heart, gorgeous isn't it!
....and a bit more inspiration from our design you can see there are alot of different ways that you can manipulate this sketch.

Well done to all the artists and their gorgeous layouts.

Just a question for you Michelle, just wondering where you got the "wings" in your layout or did you draw them yourself - they are just beautiful.

Keep up the great work everyone.

Thank you for the lovely comments, the DT girls have done some fab layouts!

Sandie, the wings are hand drawn.

And you can't really tell by the photo, but the whole layout has gold embossed edges the same as the heart.

Can't wait to see what everyone creates!
