March Sketch Challenge #24 with Guest Sketch Artist ~ Karan Gerber!

Hello Everyone!
Today we are excited to introduce you to our 
March Sketch Artist
Karan Gerber

"My Name is Karan Gerber and I love scrapbooking.
 I reside in south western Ontario, Canada, with my family. My husband, Glenn of 20 years and our two boys; Ellijah and Galen
My passion for this hobby definitely shows in the projects I love to create.  My family, children and grand children are the main inspiration for my projects and you will often see their smiling faces adorning my pages and projects. I first began scrapbooking when a neighbor invited me to a home party and i have been hooked ever since. that was over 16 years ago. I love creating all kinds of paper projects. I can best describe my style as detail oriented of which i love to incorporate textures and layers of dimension whenever i can.

 From canvas, to chipboard, fabric and layers of paper. I enjoy tucking tags for journal spots and hidden elements that the reader can pull out and learn more about the people in the photo. I take a great deal of pride in my work and this shows  in all my projects i create.  I am currently designing for Heartfelt Creations and am a Market Contributor for Canvas Corp Brands.

I am also the proud  Owner and Sketch Designer for two successful Sketch Blogs; 

Sketchabilities and Cardabilities."

Karan shared this with us about her layout:

"The Ribbon is Gold, the Arrow on top right is painted gold, and i have used Radiant Rain Solar Gold and Tattered Angels Gold Paint in the flicks and final details.

I have scraped this photo once before.  It is of our Granddaughter Ariel. This was taken last summer when we had a visit from them while we were camping and she was throwing rocks trying to make them skip.
