Sketchabilities #150 June Reveal

Thursday, June 14, 2018

Hey, y'all!  I'm so excited to be here today, sharing my first page as a member of the newly-revived Sketchabilities Challenge Design Team!  So, without further adieu, let's just get started.
I started this page by adding puddles of aqua and blue watercolors to the 12" x 12" watercolor paper, base page.  I then splattered it with those same shades of watercolor, as well as bright pink and yellow watercolors and Pure Black and Titanium White acrylic paints.  My photos were matted with white cardstock and set atop a bed of layered prints, all anchored with bright-pink-threaded, straight and zig-zag, machine stitching, as well as a snippet of cheesecloth for texture, and anchored with a Cameo-cut, white, cardstock scallop and open flower and floral die cut.  The "AMAZING memories" title, too, was tucked into that grounding cluster; created from a cardstock sticker and glitter die cut; and sandwiched between a puffy, floral sticker...
and darling, mermaid die cut, popped up with foam tape.
A scalloped tag, laced with white string, tied in a bow, was tucked under the left side of the photos.
A sweet, butterfly die cut, adhered just at its center, crowns them...
and an "all my LOVE", puffy sticker brings us full circle back to the title itself and turns our attention to...
a second, Cameo-cut, white, cardstock blossom, topped with a die-cut flower; puffy, floral sticker; and die-cut swan.  I tucked a "TODAY//" June 20, 2014, label under the head of the swan...
and a little journaling to its right side.  The journaling reads, Beating the heat in our own backyard.  Keep smiling beautiful!
A trio of stamped, in Jet Black ink, phrases; scattering of puffy sticker flowers; and sprinkle of colorful sequins completes the look.
Here's your June Sketch #150 to get you off and creating in the right direction.
I can't wait to see what you all cook up!  Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a wonderful weekend, friends!
