I have had this photo, taken in the church after a christening sermony, printed out for month, just waiting for the right moment to scrap it. Last week I found the June 1 Sketch Challenge at Let's Get Sketchy, and thought it would be great for this photo.
And here is the sketch:
I just had to put on some flowers:
And some closeups on some other embellishing:
Papers and embellishments are mostly from the February 2017 kit from Swirlydoos.
I have used the Anemone corner on my card. I printed it on a cardstock, colored with Prisma color pencils. The motive is then matted with green cardstock and put on the cardbase.
Here is a detail of the motive:
I fussycut some butterflies and put them on the right side of the card together with rhinestones.
To make a frame I put rhinestones all the way to where the motive began again. On two of the banners I stamped sentiments, left the third emtpy for the possibility to put in a name or something like that, when given away.
We visited Monument Valley in November last year, and I have a lot of photos from our stay. When I saw the last sketch at Let's Scrap, I thoght it would be perfect for some of them.
I struggled finding papers that suited my photos, so I had to go through a lot of cardstocks to find some that where good.
Here is my layout:
And here is the sketch 6-1-17:
I had a patterned paper that had four triangels with text on it. Even though the text wasn't that perfect I just loved the triangels so I cut out those and used them,
I colored my chipboards with four different colors of embossingpowders from Lindy's Stamp Gang. I love these embossingpowders and they are great to mix. I just emboss one color at a time without covering the whole chipboard and the colors mix up great.
The tags are cut out of cardstock and patterned papers.
I also enter this page in Scrapp og skravl, monthly challenge, challenge 1 - use ribbon or lace.
It's time for more inspiration from the double page team at Stick it Down.
Here is my page:
And here is the sketch:
Since I don't like to cut photos appart to get them to fit in the middle of a double layout, I choose to make this sketch with two smaller photos on top in the middle of the page. If you like to cut a photo in half and put the two halfes on the edge of the pages, do so. I would love to see that on a page.
For my page I have used photos from Petrified Forest, taken in November last year.
I used several layers of papers (to save some paper I have cut out the middle section of two of them).
The pattern papers are rom Prima, as are the flowers.
Here are some closeups:
I used some micro beads around the flowerclusters and on some of the flowers.
I put my journaling on some cardstock strips, and used tiny alpastickers for the name of the specific place in the National park where these photos are taken. All the journaling is about this place.
Here are three more flowerclusters.
And at last. I used some wordsstrips from Tim Holz for the subtitle. I had Prima Art Alchemy Metallique wax on the edges. I also had some wax on the flowers, but that isn't showing so well.
Hope you will try to make a layout based on the sketch and play with us at Stick it Down. You have until June 30, to enter.
We pick out one random participant who get this prize:
We stayed for three nights at Encinitas when we visited California last year. One day we took a walk and found the Stonesteps down to the beach. We walked back by the beach, getting wet since it was high water.
