Hi there today I am sharing my layout for the sketch challenge over at http://scrapafrica.blogspot.com.au/. What a beautiful sketch and colours to work with. The photo is of my sons Christopher, Wayne and Billy with my nephew Aubrey and best family friend Craig. These guys are my sunshine so this layout is made with pure LOVE.
Starting with my sheet of patterned paper I have applied gesso to mostly cover the entire page. A little subtle hint of the pattern can be seen. I have used Smooch Spritz – Green Olive and sprayed to draw attention to my photo.
I mounted my photo onto some beautiful papermania glitter paper from the paparazzi stack I had in my stash. I chose to go with circular photo and mount to match the sketch. Using some twine purchased from Kaszazz I have circled the photo 3 times and glued into position.
I made a tag (sort of a tag) to place beside my photo. I used some papers and made a collage, then I added gesso, and misted with Glimmer Mist – Gold, and Smooch Spritz – Green Olive. You can just slightly see the light bulb in the bottom corner from the collage. I used some builders mesh.
I coloured the chipboard mesh in the top corner with Smooch – lettuce. Added a few cut outs from a magazine freebie which I thought were perfect for this layout. Adding some paper flowers with brads for centres and some lovely material leaves completed the layout.
Thanks for dropping by, Sharon xxx
