The Studio Sketch Challenge

Sunday, December 6, 2015

Hey, y'all!  Just popping in, on this beautiful, Sunday morning, with my take on The Studio's first December challenge.  We've got a sketch, based upon my take on our Create Your Own Embellishment Challenge, for you all, this time.  I mirrored it for my take of Adina's first papercraft publication and, once again, couldn't help but dive into my November Hip Kit Club.
I started this page by smudging the aqua, stripe, base page with Pink Bubblegum and Leap Frog Glimmer Mists; splattering it with both Pure Black and Titanium White acrylic paints; and stamping it, in both Pretty in Pink and Jet Black inks, with the candy stripes and array of snowflakes respectively.  I then layered a number of patterned papers, many of which were anchored with silver-threaded, straight, machine stitches, as well as a bit of vellum, under the matted, with Whisper White cardstock, photo.
The bottom right corner of the photo was embellished with a penguin, holding a trio of balloons, die cut, backed with a tangle of silver thread.
The balloons themselves were framed with a portion of an aqua Polaroid, which was overlaid by a red label, housing my 2014 Holiday Issue of Get Inspired Mag. p. 94 journaling.  Stamped, in Jet Black ink, "the details"...
and "Congratulations" phrases round out the cluster.
Under the top edge of the photo, I tucked a chalkboard tag, laced with a Baker's Twine bow, before scattering four each of Whisper White, cardstock, die-cut and silver, glitter, sticker snowflakes; a handful of enamel dots; and lots of silver, star sequins throughout.
The "My first PUBLICATION" title was created from a foam, phrase sticker; puffy, alpha stickers; and a Cameo-cut "first" along the vertical left edge of the photo and competes the look.
Further inspiration for this page came from Scrap Our Stash's Stash Challenge #33: Die Cuts (D = die cuts & "details"; I = ink; E = enamel dots; C = snowflake cut file, cardstock, Candy Stripe stamp, & "Congratulations"; U = Glimmer Mist underlay & puffy "U" alpha sticker; T = chalkboard tag, Baker's Twine, triangles, & tangle of thread; S = silver, stars, stitching, stamping, stripes, snowflakes, Silhouette Cameo, paint splatters, stickers, & sequins).
I'm also entering it into Clique Kits' December Anything Goes Challenge, and here's your Sketch Challenge graphic, from The Studio, to get you started.
Be sure to stop by the challenge link above to see how the rest of the team was inspired.  Then, you have until Sunday, January 3, 2016, to link up your takes in the right-hand column of The Studio Blog.  Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a wonderful week, friends!
