Sisters


Bright cheeriness and bursting with colour... that is what I wished to bring to mind while playing at my scrap table last night.

I believe I succeeded in that endeavour.  Using the March Week #3 sketch over at Let's Get Sketchy paired it with the vibrant March Challenge mood board over at Sassy Scrappers I came up with this layout.








Supplies: cardstock (Canadian Scrapbooker Super stock), embossed cardstock (Core'dinations), border stamp (Kelly Panacci for SandyLion), pigment ink (Martha Stewart), molding paste (Golden), floral stencil (Mona Pendleton Designs for My Favorite Things), gelatos (Faber-Castell), chipboard letters (American Crafts), liquid glass (CTMH), baker's twine (MME), tissue paper and chunky glitter (Dollarama), punches (Stampi' Up and EK Success), marker (Fibra Color)


Such cuties and the colours just zing!

I flipped the sketch and turned the square into a diamond as I loved the diamond frame in the frames section of the mood board.



Let's Get Sketchy March Week #3
Sassy Scrappers March Mood Board


As you will see, a lot of my elements were derived from each section of the mood board and used on my page.  

Firstly, I used the gorgeous colours.. corally oranges, teal, white and silver grey.  As I have previously mentioned, I love old frames.  It was such a natural fit to frame the layout using stamped orange framing.  From the teal coloured font script "art" word and the alphabet collage, I used a piece of sanded alphabets script embossed Core'dinations cardstock.






Those tissue poms at the bottom left of the board and the flowers through out... awesome... so I used a variety of combination amounts of Tangerine, Blood Orange and Metallic Melon gelatos to colour tissue papers and created the tissue flowers with Metallic Mint teal centres and string them banner like in place of the banner strip of paper in the sketch.






The top right section of the mood board had me drawn to the different glasses.  From the milk glass stemmed bowl, I used molding paste and a floral My Favourite Things Mona Pendleton Designs stencil and from the teal bottle vase, I splattered watered diluted Metallic Mint gelato following the sketches random dots diagonal.






For the clear glass, I used Liquid Glass on the chipboard letters after applying Silver gelato and the sprinkled with thick silver glitter.







Such fabulous inspiration results in a wonderful layout! So pleased that I played along with these challenges.  Infused with colour, texture and memories, this layout makes me happy.


TTFN,
