Stuck?! -- two new layouts

I am a huge fan of Laura Whitaker's sketches, so I try to check out the Stuck?! Sketches blog each month. Both sketches this month are fabulous, as usual.

This is the Feb. 1 sketch:

My third grandchild turned "sweeet 16" last week, so I found three photos of her that I especially like and combined them with this sketch and the February main kit and embellishment add-on from Citrus Twist Kits:

Here's the also fabulous Feb. 15 sketch:

And my layout, featuring my youngest granddaughter and one of her family's three dogs. I also used the same kit from Citrus Twist Kits:

As you can see on the above two layouts, I've been playing with inks and paints a little bit. I used a chicken-wire stencil to sponge-paint on the background for this one, showing my nine-year-old daughter's rollerderby skates. These are the skates of a warrior!

I used a Stampin' Up grunge background stamp for this one; just couldn't resist showcasing grandson Hamish's unique sense of style:

I used a small paintbrush to throw around a few paint splats, too

Thanks for looking. Have a great day!
