Here is this month’s sketch challenge over at Scrapbook Supplies Online:
|May Layout Sketch Challenge for Scrapbook Supplies Online|
I love that this sketch used blocking and tickets. I kept the embellishments to a minimum because I wanted the photo and the title chipboard piece to really be the focus. I like to take this approach when I use blocking in a layout. Here is my take on the sketch:
I used a piece of We R Memory Keepers paper (the kind with 4 blocks of coordinating patterns) for the blocks and stuck a few things behind the pieces for added interest (parts of a paper bag- one of my favourite layering materials, and a piece of Sassafras paper from a Studio Calico kit). I cut the Sassy paper with my scalloped and note book border punches.
The tickets were made using my MFT ticket Die-Namic, and the coordinating Just the Ticket stamp set. I LOVE making my own tickets in whatever colours I choose! I made these from a piece of Crate Paper Story Teller collection and used Jenni Bowlin cough syrup and Versafine black onyx inks. I also used my Dear Lizzy roller stamp for the date.
That chipboard title is so amazing! I painted the flower with Smooch inks and Martha Stewart paints, then left the letters plain because I am in love with plain chipboard! I covered it in glossy accents to deepen the colour of the chipboard and give it a glossy finish.
