Good morning- and Happy Earth Day! This post is coming to you via Auto Post as I am out of town :). Just wanted to make sure I was able to share with you my DT work for Creative Scrappers, sketch #205 which is being unveiled today!
After capturing this photo of my middle child, Gunner, I just couldn't wait to get it scrapped. We were coloring eggs the night before Easter Sunday, and I was originally taking a group shot of my hubby and the two boys when I noticed Gunner giving up his "Cheese Face" (as I like to call it, lol). So I quick zoomed in on him and got some good ones- a rarity of late. It seems that he makes a run from the camera more now than ever- which is frustrating for a scrappy mom- I'm sure you can relate! So this was a treat for me :).
Here's what I came up with (I've really been having fun experimenting with my messy side, if you hadn't noticed):
Based on this fabulous sketch:
I've had this Bo Bunny "Ambrosia" collection since it was first released and have hardly touched it. But for some reason, I was just drawn to it for this layout. The bright colors, I felt, really helped portray my little guy's bold personality- and did well in supporting his spontaneous "holiday mood" :).
Of course I've got some close-ups for you...
I used a mixture of gesso, glimmer mist, and glimmer glaze to create my funky background~
The sequins and mini blooms were all individually placed and popped up with foam adhesive~
~Bo Bunny "Ambrosia" papers
~Prima Marketing, Kaiser Craft, Flying Unicorn, & Wild Orchid flowers
~Tattered Angels "Mardi Gras" & "Inchworm" Glimmer Mists
~Maya Road "Blue Hydrangea" mist
~Tattered Angels "Mermaid" Glimmer Glaze
~Other: ribbon, lace, sequins, doily, gesso, foam adhesive
So get yourself on over to Creative Scrappers and try this sketch out for yourself! It's very versatile- I definitely took this one in my own direction- but that's the beauty of sketches!!
Have a great day and I'll be around very soon- will be back Monday night and am hoping to get my "catching up" done then.
