I am popping in today to share another layout I made in response to another fun You Tube challenge. This time the challenge is a sketch challenge and it is by one of my favourite scrapbookers (yes I know, I have a lot of favourite scrapbookers LOL) on You Tube. Here is the link to her channel : https://www.youtube.com/user/StampingRooster/videos . Gretchen makes beautiful layouts, sometimes based on sketches that she creates, and her process videos are lovely and very detailed. She explains so well the steps and techniques as she goes. We often get a bonus as well - one, or more, of her kitties will come and visit during the process :) . If you don't know The Stamping Rooster (Gretchen), pop right on over to her channel, take a break and watch a couple of her videos. You will be so happy you did.
Gretchen and her husband are on vacation this week - in beautiful Paris; therefore she is making memories as opposed to scrapping them. She challenged us to use one of her sketches and make a layout while she is away (you can find all of her sketches in the challenge blog post she wrote here : http://stampingrooster.blogspot.ca/2015/05/sketch-challenge.html )
Here is my layout and the sketch I based it on (it is her sketch 27) :
This was not the sketch I had originally planned on using but the photos just begged for this one. And I am happy with the outcome. I am also happy that I used pink - it is not a colour I use often although I love it !
The supplies : All of the supplies come from my March Scraptastic Rivers and Roads Kit except for :
- the Thickers used for my title are from Dear Lizzy and I had them in my stash but since there is quite a bit of Dear Lizzy in this kit, they match beautifully and I have used them on a least two, if not three, layouts using this kit
- the white splatters are simply watered down acrylic paint
- the pink flower brads have been in my stash for I don't know how many years and I don't remember anything about them LOL. It sure felt good to get them on a page though
- The enamel dots are from my stash
