Scrap The Girls November challenge
This month at Scrap The Girls, there is a lovely sketch to use:
I love working with sketches, they provide a starting point, but also versatility to allow for your own interpretation, but quite simply you could just use them as they are. I pretty much kept to the sketch, but added my own little touches.
For my layout, I thought about using 4 different photos, like the sketch has, but I decided on 1 square 5 inch photo in the end. I was on a retreat in August, and met the talented Amanda Hartmann, who I am on a couple of design teams with. There was an 80's dress up night, and Amanda had these awesome retro earrings, that we put on to ham it up a bit. I love how Amanda posed for this photo, she looks like she is posing for a fashion magazine, lol.
Anyway, I tried to create a bit of a retro feel to my layout, using colours inspired by the earrings. I added some stamping and Colour blast colour paste. To embellish, I have added chipboard, crochet flowers, doily, feathers, ribbon, a Studio fourteen40 flair and a Charms Creations heavenly heart.
Thanks for looking at my layout, and for any comments you may leave.
