Stuck Sketch Reveal

I am so excited to be sharing with you this sketch and layout! I pushed myself out of my comfort zone with this layout and am so pleased with the end result. 

I searched hard through my stash to come up with papers that would work with this layout. Everything except that background patterned paper came from my scrap drawer! I found two patterned papers that had the appropriate shade of green, but neither were the right type to back the badge. So, I pulled out my watercolors and Shimmerz, and created my own background.  

To create this Slytherin badge, I did a google search and found an image that was not too detailed so that it would cut nicely in my Silhouette. To make the different layers, I copied and traced it three times and cut it out with different colors of cardstock. Then, it was time to layer them on top of the watercolor paper and glue the pieces down. 

The glitter bats are from the Target dollar spot and I think they are a few years old. The sequins are from SpiegelMom Scraps and the perfect shade of green. I cannot tell a lie...I did specifically buy them for this layout. However, the shades of green are quite lovely and will work well for other projects.

The "Under Your Spell" sticker has been in my stash for a very long time. These Thickers by Pebbles are similar and have some great phrases.  The black word stickers are by Tim Holtz. I think that it is incredible just how versatile these phrases truly are...I would have never imagined that I could find one to work on a Halloween layout.

We would love for you to play along with this sketch! If you do so, be sure and link your project to the blog for a chance to win a prize from one of our sponsors. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I have linked my process video below if you'd like to take a closer peek at how this layout came together. I have also figured out how to share the link for the Slytherin silhouette file that I created.
