Hello, scrappy friends! Today's the day I reveal my take on Scrap Our Stash's August 2016 Sketch + 3 Challenge #41. Here's the Brenda Ragsdale sketch:
And here's what I came up with:
I went to a crop a month or so ago and brought this sweet pic of Éloïse and her Pépére (my father) and the Basic Grey J'adore collection. However, I never got to start a layout for this photo while I was there and the collection along with the pic were lingering on my scrappy table ever since. When I saw, Brenda's sketch, I thought to myself, there you go. I just had to wait for the right starting piece of inspiration! Thanks, Brenda! ;)
Set on a piece of Carta Bella's Rustic Elegance patterned paper, I layered a ton of elements from the Basic Grey J'adore collection - 12X12 and 6X6 patterned papers, die-cut cardstock and transparency pieces, chipboard stickers, stickers and alphas. I also added some Tattered Angels Glimmer Glaze, a hand-stitched title using an American Crafts stitching template and some DMC floss, Queen & Co. washi tape, Stampin' Up vellum, a Prima tag, and finally random brads and a clothespin I found in my stash. See the three items from each challenge list provided? You got it - vellum, washi tape and the letter X (stitched one and on one of those brads!).
Hope you're inspired to start those layouts you've been telling yourselves you'd get to one day. And if you upload your own layout inspired by this challenge over on the SOS blog, you'll get a chance to win some sweet, scrappy loot!
