Verve and Basic Grey


Hello all you creative people! We are still having a lot of power outages here but today the weather is incredibly beautiful. It’s something like right before rain (all cloudy gorgeousness) and cool winds too!

I was rummaging through this big box of goodies that I got from Stef when I started blogging, and found some Basic Grey papers. I thought I’d have a go at the Basic Grey challenge. I used the Verve sketch for week 1.


I added a bit of gold glitter on the Basic Grey paper pieces. All shapes are hand drawn, even the round corners so I apologize in advance if its a bit crooked. I am waiting for the chomper to go on sale at least then I can get good round corners.

The sentiment stamp is from Verve.

DSC04983 I added a wee bit of stitching and some gold glitter on it.

See you guys soon!
