I love this week sketch up at Let's Get Sketchy although I hardly scrap more than 1 photo layout. Love that I am doing something a little different from what I normally do. That's why I love joining skecth challenge as it does push me work out-of-the-box and out of my comfort zone.
Here's the sketch:
I love how the title is placed right below the photo and also the little embellished top right corner.
Here's my take:
As you could see, I still couldnt get over the pretty papers and embellishments from Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm collection. Love that the embellishments are more suitable for baby boy layout, yet it has my favourite colours - Pink and yellow incorporated. The background is done with Martha Stewart Acrylic Paint, I think it looks pretty awesome and it is actually easy peasy. I will definitely share the tutorial on creating faux watercolor background soon.
And some of the close up:
The horse sticker is too cute and I have been saving this for a suitable baby boy layout!
Using Versafine Gray ink here to create a softer look. Something different from my routine, as I always stamp with only black ink ;)
I am still not done with the sequin craze! I got this pretty pearl white sequins from Spotlight and I have been using it everywhere on my layout, cards and project life.
Thanks for looking! I hope the awesome sketch does inspire you to create a layout or two and remember to post it up on Let's Get Sketchy blog. Do hop over to see the awesome projects by the rest of the ladies! XoXo.
