Goodness gracious can you believe it is time for another sketch reveal? I know I sound like a broken record, but Laura designs some great sketches that I find so easy and inspiring to use. I had my Valentine's Day supplies still out from my February 1st layout, so I decided to use them to document this fun picture of me and my daughter in matching shoes :)
I am still crushing on white texture paste on white cardstock. When I find a technique that works and I love, then I will do it again! Most everything that I used on this page is from Crate's Kiss Kiss collection with the exception of the wood enamel shapes (Recollections), the printed tag (American Crafts) and the gold cursive alpha (Heidi Swapp).
The best part of the layout for me, is using holiday themed product on a non-holiday layout and I find that Valentine's day products are super easy to use. The "Seriously Cute" sticker and the "So Fun" chipboard heart were the perfect embellishments for this page. They complemented the journaling and I love it when my embellishments add to the story that I am telling.
For added whimsy I outlined a few of the paper layers and added polka dot tissue paper under the photo. Some pops of gold and black helped to make the page stand out, and worked beautifully with the colors in the photo.
We would love for you to play along with us at Stuck?! Sketches. If you do so, don't forget to upload your layout to the blog so that you have a chance to win a prize from one of these two sponsors.
I have a process video if you would like to take a peek at my process. I was having trouble uploading it and will update this link when I have it ready to view. I hope you have a great day :)
