Stuck?! February 15th Sketch

Sunday, February 15, 2015

Good morning, friends!  Just popping back in to share my take on Stuck?! Sketches mid-month sketch.  So, let's get right to it.  Shall we?
I started this page by trimming the left side of the woodgrain, patterned, paper, base page, which stretched over onto the right side of the page, with a couple of Valentine papers and the right side with a strip of heart, patterned paper.  I also decked out the center of the design with yet a couple more patterned papers and flanked everything with strips of silver, chevron Washi, as well as silver-threaded, straight, machine stitches, before turning my attention to the left side of the page.
The top of the design boasts a quartet of yummy papers, some of which were cut in the shape of banners and anchored with silver-threaded, straight and zig-zag, machine stitches, topped with an accordion heart, entangled with more of that silver thread.  Just to the left of that, I stamped the word "sweet", in Jet Black ink, atop a "XOXO" glitter sticker.
A cluster of color-coordinating, patterned papers, including a couple which were hand-cut in the form of banners and a bit of polka dot vellum, and some of which were secured with more of that silver thread, create the backdrop for my main photograph which was matted with Whisper White cardstock and wrapped with a length of Peppermint Baker's Twine, tied in a bow.  A pink doily, as well as a couple of Cameo-cut, from Ballet Slippers and Basic Grey cardstocks, branches, which were entangled with a bit more of that yummy, silver thread, were tucked under the top left corner of the picture and grounded with a "LOVE" flair button.
I then stretched some Cameo-cut, from Real Red cardstock, interlocking hearts, under the photo, from the left to right side and topped them with the "be mine always" title which was Cameo-cut from Whisper White cardstock and stamped in Jet Black ink.
A few stamped, in Jet Black ink, hearts; silver, arrow, glitter sticker; hand-cut, from patterned paper, "P.S. I love you!" flashcard, which I dressed up with some glitter; and the hint of another "FEB 14" flashcard...
turns our attention to the right side of the design...
where you'll see the remainder of that "FEB 14" flashcard, along with another "XOXO" flashcard; lots more of those same patterned papers as described and prepped previously, all grounding a grid of photos; and another string of Cameo-cut, Real Red, cardstock, interlocking hearts.
You'll also find a few more stamped hearts, as well as more Valentine flair...
and some additional, cardstock branches, backed by another pink doily and entangled with more of that silver thread.  A stamped, in Jet Black ink, "has my {heart}" arrow...
mimics the "HAS my HEART" glitter sticker, which was grounded by a "HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY" sticker below.
Another pink doily dresses up the top left photograph and draws our attention to the pink label, which reads, sprinkles, cookies, a toasty sweatshirt, jeans, chocolate, and a new baby brother - the BEST!  A "SHINE" clip and sprinkling of silver, glitter, heart stickers throughout complete the look.
Our sponsors for this particular sketch, with a stack of the winner's choice and two spools of ribbon of the winner's choice respectively, are...
and here's your February 15th Sketch, which I rotated 90 degrees to the left and stretched into two, to get you started.
Further inspiration for this layout came from Let's Capture Our Memories' February Color Spot.
