Today I am participating in two challenges. One over at Stick it Down with a sketch by Laura Rumble (I must say that it is not an easy one! It really took some thinking and some playing around until I found a layout that would work for me) and as the layout is so Monochromatic, I will also be entering it in the Colorful Creations mid-month challenge 🙂
Here is the sketch:
And here is the layout that I came up with!
This layout is goint to go in “the book of me“. When I created my Crazy Hair Don’t Care layout recently, I had to make it without any photos of my blue hair, as I couldn’t find any decent ones anywhere (I did find two, but they were scans of not so clear images, so they didn’t print very well) But a couple of weeks after making that layout I finally found this photo of me with blue hair! Yay! I absolutely loved my hair like this, and sometimes I wish I had the guts to have it done again! Unfortunately I am not 20 years old any more….
The papers are from Echo Park Creative Agenda. The tickers are Fitzgerald and the heart stencils are from The Happy Scatter, a shop on Etsy and the lady who runs it is a fellow scrapbooker from the UK! And that is pretty much it! The layout is so simple! I created the paste to put through the stencil with modelling paste and ink sprays. To get this colour, I mixed Turquoise Shimmer Mister, Teal Heidi Shine and a touch (literally, one drop) of Mr Huey’s Double Yellow. I am very pleased with how well the paste coordinates with the papers.
A couple more close ups:
I hope you have liked this layout, and read you soon!
