Here’s may take on this week’s sketch over at Nuts About Sketches:
Here is the sketch, which I rotated 90 degrees and moved the title and journalling around a bit:
|I just love working with sketches, and Shawn’s sketches are always so inspiring.|
I finally broke into my SoCal kit from Studio Calico (I also have the Newport add-on mixed in with my kit). I love that the colours in the kit were similar to the colours in the graduation photo, but lighter and more muted. I think that allows the photo to really stand out (the photographer for her preschool, btw, was Scott – yay Scott!)
That sunburst above was really fun to create. I used the long flower petal stamp from the Newport add on (check out my process video below to see how I made it). The inks are Stampin’ Up!, mostly from last year’s In Colours. I misted the Prima canvas butterfly with Glimmer Mist, which conveniently doesn’t glimmer on canvas (giving me the chance to use it up and save my Mister Huey’s for other projects).
I layered a few strips along the right edge of the photo, giving me a chance to use my new star border punch. I wanted to include stars in the layout because her graduation song is about being a little star.
Process vid (should be working soon, it’s still processing on YT):
Well, I’m off to attend a picnic at my older daughter’s school. Have a great week!
