Just stopping by to share my latest layout that I created for the sketch challenge going on at "Scrap Africa".
Here is the sketch:
And here is my layout:
I am a huge fan of circles and what caught my attention was the huge half circle at the top of the sketch... I thought "well, that's different!" Then I had to figure out what to do w/ the rest of the sketch - yikes! That messy BG in the middle is not my style at all! What to do, what to do?!
Well I had just gotten a new kit from SB.com and I remembered it included a mask and some mist so I decided to try it out. I'm starting to get the hang of misting and although my design was a lot more "controlled" I thought the fact that I had mist on the outside edges of my mask went well w/ the whole "messy" look of the sketch. One day I'll be brave enough to actually do something more along the lines of what the sketch suggests, but for now...baby steps.
I had these old pictures of Panini lying around. They are of her when she was 3 months old; approximately 1 year ago. I didn't know what to title the layout since I have scrapped so many pictures of her already but as I was looking at her cute little face I kept thinking "Awww...I love her so much!" so "Kitty Luv" became my title.
When I was putting this together I really had no idea where it was going... I just kinda went w/ the flow as I found items in my stash. In keeping w/ my 'keep it simple approach' to scrapping I just added a little bit of doodling, a few stickers a handwritten quote that I found on the internet, and finally my title. A lot of the items are old: the huge flower (Sassafrass), the title letters, the cat collar frame, and the "You Are Such a Blessing" sticker.
I just love when I use up my older items!!!
