Hello, everyone! Already in the middle of the month!! WOW! Summer is just going by just like that! But no worries - still lots of time to scrap and today is reveal day over at Stuck?! Sketches where Laura Whitaker is sharing a new sketch to inspire all scrappers out there. Here it is:
Love it! And here's what I came up with:
I was so psyched to see that big spot on the bottom of the sketch reserved for patterned paper! I usually cluster patterned paper around the photo, but when I saw this sketch, I was totally excited to try something new. Pretty much all the layout was done using Basic Grey Hello, Luscious pieces. And instead of adding a second photo, I replaced it with some fussy-cut flowers and stems I found on a coordinating piece of patterned paper. I also added some Basic Grey alphas (which I inked using some Tim Holtz Distress Ink and embossed with the Cuttlebug), Cosmo Crickets word/phrase stickers, a Freckled Fawn wood veneer word, a Prima metal butterfly clip, Stampin' Up vellum, Tattered Angels Glimmer Glaze, Liquitex acrylic paint, hand-stitching using a Bazzill Basics stitching template with some DMC floss, and old corrugated box and recipe card pieces.
