So I was blog hopping the other night, and came across a challenge site, Scrapfriends, and there was this fabulous sketch. The sketch, and the Design Team interpretations of it, caught my imagination and I decided to use it to make a layout.
Isn't it a great sketch:
I had fun with this layout- masking, inking, stamping, lots of lovely textures, and small details.
This is what I came up with:
I loved making this page, mainly I think because I have done lots of pretty girly pages recently, and it was great to do a page featuring my son for a change.
I also used up some old stash, which is always a good thing! The background paper is a woodgrain, although it's a bit difficult to see here. I think it's Dream Street, so that shows how old it is. And the other patterned paper is old American Crafts.
This mask is a piece of plastic mesh that came from Gauche Alchemy. I sprayed through the mesh, but then flipped it over to stamp the ink onto the page as well.
The bigger squares on the right hand side of the page are a Prima mask.
The sprays are either Dylusions, or Ranger colour wash sprays.
The journalling spot is a transparency from Kaisercrafts, stuck on with acrylic paint. The acrylic paint also makes it easier to read the journalling. Most of the stamps and rub ons are also from Kaisercrafts, as are the decorative brads.
The corrugated card, and hessian add some great texture to the layout! And I love how the hessian weave echoes the masked grid squares too.
So there you have it, one layout inspired by a great sketch!
