Stuck?! Sketches April 1st DT Reveal


April 1st is here already and that means that its reveal day over at Stuck?! Sketches!!

Laura has once again wowed us with a fantastic sketch to work with! Here's what it looks like...

I loved using this sketch! Here's my layout...

This is my little Isaac when he was just 10 months old... he's now 7 1/2 years old!! Still working on his baby photos!!

I started my layout by applying modeling paste through a TCW template and then flicking a small amount of ink on the background (Black & Citron Color Shine and Aquamarine Glimmer Mist). For the circle in the top left, I traced around a cup with a black pen and then painted over it with green (Crushed Olive) Distress Ink.

Here are a some closeups of my layout...

In my small cluster here I added a Prima flower, a Bella Blvd sticker, and a Heidi Swapp die-cut ticket that I applied Crushed Olive Distress Ink to.

The patterned paper that I used was from the Kaisercraft Bow & Arrow collection and these flag/bunting stickers are from the same range. I used these in place of the scallops on the sketch.

For my little cluster in the bottom right I used an October Afternoon flair & sticker, a Kaisercraft sticker and a Simple Stories die-cut.

I used this Heidi Swapp word sticker as the title for my layout... "Delight".

I love this Maggie Holmes chalkboard sticker! I popped some foam tape underneath it to give it some dimension. I also included another Prima flower and an October Afternoon sticker here as well.

I hope that you pop on over to the Stuck?! Sketches blog to be inspired by the amazing layouts that my fellow design team members have created!
