You are a Star - Stuck?! 1st Feb Sketch & Jot Mood Board


Today I am sharing a layout that I created using the February 1st sketch from Stuck?! Sketches and the February mood board at Jot Magazine!

This is what the sketch looks like...


And this is the Jot mood board...

When I saw this mood board, I straight away knew which photos I was going to scrap - I've had these photos of Abigail wearing a red, black and white dress waiting to be scrapped for awhile, and this was the perfect motivation! I was inspired by the bright red combined with black & white stripes on the mood board. I also included the word 'love' on my layout :)

 So here is my layout...
"You are a Star"

I love these photos of Abigail! They were taken when she was 3 1/2 years old on Christmas Day. We've had a tradition since she was a baby that each year she gets a new 'Christmas Dress' to wear on Christmas Day. She loved this dress because when she spun around in circles it billowed out and looked so pretty!

Here are some closeups of my layout...


My title is made up of chevron letters from Typo along with Ruby Rock-It mini alphas and a Heidi Swapp word.

To create the white splatters on my layout, I mixed gesso with a little bit of water to make it a runnier consistency and splattered it sparingly across my page.

I also added a few embellishments here including a BasicGrey flair and a Heidi Swapp sticker. To create the banner with the word 'love' written all over it, I covered a rectangle of cardstock with washi tape before cutting it into a banner :) I sort of came up with this because I didn't have any coordinating red patterned paper, and I think it worked quite well!

And a closeup of the small cluster at the bottom of my page :)
