The Studio Sketch Challenge

Sunday, October 11, 2015

Welcome back, friends!  I've got my take on The Studio's newest challenge, for you all, this morning.  We've got a sketch, based upon Kat's take on our Stars & Stripes Challenge, to inspire your creative time this go around.  I was further inspired by a number of happy goodies that have been coming in my Hip Kit Club packages over the last few months and all the little bugs on my littlest kiddo's shirt.  Enjoy!
I started this page by layering a number of color-coordinating, pattered papers, as well as a bit of vellum, over the stamped, in Wild Wasabi ink, on the gray, polka dot, base page, Vintage Notepad image; anchoring a number of them with gold-threaded, straight, machine stitches; and topping them with my photos which were matted with Whisper White cardstock.  I then grounded them with the "SPECIAL FOR TODAY: FUN" title, which was created from a manufacturer's tag and gold, glitter letters, over an "f is for fun" flashcard.
The bottom right corner of the photo grouping was embellished with an "A WILD SPIRIT" tag and tiger mask...
and the top left with a White, cardstock, cloud die cut and chipboard kite, which I anchored....
right past "ADVENTURE" and "LITTLE YOU" tags; a hand-cut, from patterned paper, "BE HAPPY" circle; and stamped, in Brilliant Blue ink, on White cardstock and hand-cut dragonfly, all of which were affixed atop a tangle of gold thread...
with a length of Peapod twine, tied in a bow, to an "oh so HAPPY Right here" tag.  The tag itself was then topped with an acrylic arrow, secured with a simple staple, as well as a zebra die cut, tucked under that initial "f is for fun" flashcard...
and over a "HELLO MY NAME IS" name tag, which was grounded with a 15 months, May 2, 2015, ticket and stamped, in Crisp Cantaloupe ink, on White cardstock and hand-cut inchworm.
A sprinkling of gold sequins and acrylic camera complete the look.
Further inspiration for this page came from Scrap Our Stash's Stash Challenge #31: Inks (I = ink & stamped inchworm; N = notepad stamp, number "5" ticket, & "HELLO MY NAME IS" name tag; K = chipboard kite; S = staples, stitching, sequins, & stamping)...
and here is this month's Sketch Challenge to get you off and running in the right direction.
Be sure to stop by the challenge link above to see how the rest of the team was inspired.  Then, I hope you'll all join in the fun!  You have until Sunday, November 8, 2015, to link up your takes in the right-hand column of The Studio Blog.  Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a wonderful week!
