Here in Australia it is the first day of Spring and I am so excited to be saying good bye to the colder months and welcoming the warmer Spring weather! The start of a new month also means a new sketch challenge at Stuck?! Sketches!
Here is the fabulous sketch designed for us by Laura Whitaker:
This month we have a co challenge happening with Scrap Our Stash! Our design team have combined the sketch with the September challenge at Scrap Our Stash to create some fabulous layouts! This is the challenge for this month at Scrap Our Stash:
Here is my design team layout:
I mirror reversed the sketch as it seemed to work better with my photos this way.
These are the items that I've used for the Scrap Our Stash challenge:
L - Leaves, Lime Green
A - American Crafts Patterned Paper
Y - Yellow
E - Enamel Dots
R - 'Recorded' (title)
S - Splatters
Here are some closeups of my layout:
Up in the top left I've used a Crate Paper Maggie Holmes vellum word for my title. I've also added a flair and enamel dots, both from D-lish Scraps.
I don't have a scallop border punch, so to make these scallops I die cut some small circles and then cut them half. Here you can also see some flowers that I fussy cut from co-ordinating patterned paper and a Kaisercraft butterfly with a Pinkfresh Studio enamel brad in the centre.
Part of this cluster in the bottom left was already printed onto the patterned paper... I simply added a word strip mounted on foam tape, a Maggie Holmes vellum circle, and some enamel dots and brad. I finished the page off with some splatters of watercolour paint.
If you haven't done so already, I hope that you'll pop on over to the Stuck?! Sketches blog and take a look at the lovely layouts created by my fellow design team members! We would love you to play along with us by creating a layout inspired by this sketch and linking it up on the Stuck?! Sketches blog by September 29th! The randomly chosen winners will win a prize from one of our very generous sponsors :
