My Scraps Sketch #85

Hey there!  If you're looking for a fun sketch to play with this weekend, then look no further :)  My Scraps Sketch Blog has another one up today, and it's a great one!  Check it out:

I flipped it on its side.  I used some of the lovely Daydreamer collection from American Crafts.  I just ooh and aahh over it every time I pull it's just so pretty!  This is a picture from few years ago of Reese and one of her favorite therapists.  I had to document her on a layout since she was very special to us :)  I used a circle template and some gelatos to create some subtle circles on my background sheet.  I inked heavily around the edges with black ink and added stamping, doodling and washi tape.  I like the contrast of the black against the soft pinks, yellows and aqua.  I think this layout turned out sort of soft and feminine, yet grungy at the same time.  Sometimes I have no idea where a layout will take me...I just go with what feels right at the time.

Lots of layers here...paper, stickers, thread and a button.

I used drywall tape to cover this chipboard arrow, and then I went over it with gesso and a blue gelato.  Pretty cool effect!  I love layering chipboard, too.

The white gelato left a ring around the circles when I traced through the stencil, but I kind of like how it looks.  I added in a bit of blue for a shadow effect.

Okay, so these rub-ons don't "rub on" that well.  Lots of places refused to transfer on to my paper.  So I sort of had to color her in the rest of the way.  That's my only complaint about this collection...the rest is completely fabulous!
