TGIF MME fans! We hope you have a wonderful Friday! Ronda is bringing you a new sketch for inspiration today...just perfect for your weekend scrapping!
Share your layout via the inlinkz tool at the bottom of the post and you could be chosen for a blog spotlight and collection of your choice. You have until Thursday February 14 (we will share the February sketch on Feb.15) to enter!
The photo could be one larger photo or two smaller photos. A stacked title off to the right is a great way to balance the patterned paper & photo on the left. You can add journaling stripes, hand written journaling, or printed journaling under the photo.
Supplies: Collectable-Notable: 'Love This' Adore patterned paper,'Wonder' Dream patterned paper; 'Wonder' decorative brads,'Wonder' decorative buttons,'Love This' journal card,'Cute' enamel dots, decorative tape;Collectable-Unforgettable:'Today' stamps;Collectable-Remarkable:'Beautiful' stamps;Misc:black ink, distress inks, stencil
My nephew is very close to my kids. They grew up together as my sister & I were always together. I love the relationship these three have. When Jake comes out for the summertime, they are inseparable. I am overjoyed that they feel like almost siblings and not cousins.
To create the background, I used my stencil and distress inks. Next I layered the yellow patterned paper over the journaling card. I added a bit of washi tape on the journal card for color and another design element. Those arrows were just perfect!
I decided it needed another strip or two to balance the color story so I added flower strip and number strip to the layers. Before I glued everything down, I sprinkled the background with black paint splatters.
I thought a title would look great off to the right so I used the backside of the 'Love This' Adore patterned paper to ground the title. To create the stacked title using the today stamp “a good day” I masked off each word with post it notes.
All around the edges I stamped different images & words using black ink to bring the page together. The layout needed some texture so I used the decorative brads and enamel dots scattered around the page.
I am always ok with hand written journaling because it gives future generations a bit of me on the layouts.
Enjoy the sketch, can't wait to see what you come up with!
