Home of the Brave

Hello all Lanette here and I have some Red, White and Blue to share with you too :) 

Recently I have been spending more time at my grandfathers house cleaning and such and let me tell you I have found some treasures! For example I found this picture of my grandfathers Platoon in September of 1944. So i just couldn't resist creating a layout all about him and his service during WWII. 

I started with some luscious Art Anthology Gesso and a brick stencil and this months sketch challenge over at Once Upon a Sketch. Along with this months Mood Board Challenge over S.W.A.T Scrap Warriors I was fully inspired and ready to go!

from there I started to build my tattered flag with some beautiful dimensional crystal.

I coated my little chipboard stars with some gesso while I was waiting for my flag to dry, just one coat an they were ready to rock some Honolulu Blue Sorbet.

With all my pieces ready my layout quickly fell together.

Products UsedArt Anthology -Gesso, Dimensional Crystal, Sorbet, Velvet & Colorations Mist. Bo Bunny- Anthem Collection Pattern Paper, American Crafts- Thickers, Umwow -Chipboard and a bit of cheesecloth. 

Now lets take a look at some details just for fun!

Thanks for stopping by the blog today, 
I hope you found some inspiration for your next 
Red, White & Blue project. 

But if you still need more inspiration, please stop by S.W.A.T to check out this months drills! After all there is a $25 Gift Card up for grabs this month!
