The Studio Sketch Challenge

Sunday, October 22, 2017

Hey, y'all!  Just stopping in to share this month's second challenge over in The Studio.  Anna has whipped up a playful sketch to get your creative juices flowing.  I tapped into my newest October Citrus Twist kit and came up with this.
I started this page by smudging and speckling Cherry and Patina Glimmer Mists onto the "LOVE THIS DAY!" patterned paper, base page.  I then splattered everything with Ballet Pink, Pure Black, and Titanium White acrylic paints before matting my photo with white cardstock; backing it with a snippet of cheesecloth; and adhering it, with foam tape, in its respective location.  Hand-cut, from patterned paper, black and white blooms were tucked under three of the photo's four corners.  A colorful, floral die cut was also tucked under its bottom left corner which was further embellished with "MAGICAL" arrow and bunny die cuts, both of which were popped up with foam tape.
A "yes to this" label, etched with the Easter 2016 date, was stuck fast to the top edge of the photo itself...
and several more floral die cuts, as well as a copper, butterfly die cut, dress up its bottom right corner.  Die-cut and chipboard tags, laced with white string, tied in a bow and knot respectively, were then tucked under the floral elements; and a glitter, BINGO card brings us full circle.
A "whole lotta lovely", chipboard banner, as well as a couple of stamped, in Jet Black ink, phrases...
which carry over to the top of the design, and both glitter heart and bird die cuts, popped up with foam tape, complete the look.
Further inspiration for this page came from Citrus Twist's October 14th 3-to-Inspire Challenge to use (1) four or more die cuts, (2) patterned paper for your background, and (3) stamps.
And here's this month's Sketch Challenge to get you creating in the right direction.
Be sure to stop by the challenge link above to see what my talented teammies have cooked up just for your viewing pleasure.  Then, you have until Sunday, November 5, 2017, to link up your takes, on this Sketch Challenge and/or our previous, October Colour Challenge, in the right-hand column of The Studio blog.  Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a blessed week, friends!
