Here is great fun sketch that I had a great time creating!!! I love sketches that are versatile to be used with many themes, pictures, colours and embellishments! GETS ME EXCITED TO SCRAP!
Using Emma’s Shoppe Collection Playhouse by Crate Paper Inc…which I think was a hand-me over from Cheryl…. a few strokes of Stampin’ Up! paint and Not Quite Navy Stamp Block with the Tim Holtz Bubbles stencil I created a great background for my 3 Photos… The Not Quite Navy by SU* colour matched the Bazzill Mysterious Teal B-eautifully when used on this pattern! Now that I have been doing more and more background art, embellishments or even just adding to the pattern paper with paint or some stencils or sprays of various mists, I am finding that my pattern paper selecting is taking a shift to allow for more modifications! Funny how scrapbooking is an every evolving art! I just love it!
Distressed edges on the 12×12 and the trio photo mat, a covered banner from CTMH complimented by a random Recollections Wood Camera and CTMH Brown Waxy Flax, Wood Polaroid Frame from Recollections (coloured using same ink as above) with a Tim Holtz Word Sticker and playful string of CTMH white waxy flax – product push: the bestest stuff ever and not available in their new catalogue … “BRING BACK WAXY FLAX BRING BACK WAXY FLAX!” Sorry product chant! Back to post …
Using a the punch outs from Stampin’ Up! chevron border punch – LOVE THIS ONE – a couple random cork shapes (brand unknown) and a cute Dino brad from a grab table at one of our scrap treats finished this LO! Happy Results!
* Not Quite Navy has been discontinued; try this colour instead.
This is one of those layouts that came together really quickly, which for me means one of two things: It’s really good or really not! 😉 I think it came together easily simply because the sketch fit the photos, the journaling was simple and I kept the embellishments simple, in keeping with the sketch.
Here’s a quick video of how it came together: (Yes, my bed head gets in the way and I go off camera a few times. This was my first attempt with a new camera set up. I’ll learn!) Wait ’til you see how many times I fiddled with those metal clips …
