Scrapping Clearly July sketch challenge
This is the first time I have tried one of the challenges at Scrapping Clearly, there are 2 each month, this is the sketch challenge, if I get time I will try the gorgeous moodboard.
I really liked playing with this sketch, and my layout came together pretty quickly for it. I chose this photo of niece Amanda with her 3 children. The page is quite masculine, which surprised me, it wasn't deliberate, but I like it this way.
For the background border, I stamped using a really cool Darkroom Door stamp, then added the other 2 background papers which was misted. I chose a selection of scrap papers that all just went together, not from any kits, just scraps. I had a Teresa Collins banner from a travel kit, which I inked, it worked, then stamped with a Stampin Up wording stamp to create the words that are to the sides of the photo. The die cut "title" piece is a Fancy Pants die cut. The camera flair is from Funky Flairs Studio, and I have used DIY embellishments from Charms Creations, which I stitched over them with a sewing machine - pretty cool effect.
I am very happy with the overall layout.
Thanks for looking at my layout and for any comments you may leave.
