Hello! Today I am sharing my take on the White Rose Crafts April Sketch Challenge. I have set a goal for myself to translate each of the sketches into scrapbook pages. I haven’t really had time to scrapbook at all lately, so this will ensure that I have at least 12 layouts by the end of the year. Here’s my page, featuring my daughter when she was about 2.
And this is the original sketch:
I thought this sketch was pretty perfect for a scrapbook page, since I often take multiple shots at once. After I had chosen my photos, I picked out my papers and additional elements. I was once again inspired by Kaisercraft’s Bombay Sunset 6×6 paper pad (I just can’t get enough of that collection!), and I thought it worked with the colors in the photos nicely.
You can see the beautiful foiling on this piece of paper. The one I used for matting my photos doesn’t have foil, but it is quite lovely. For my journaling spot. I used a background that I made some time ago with Distress Oxides. I wrote the journaling with a Spectrum Noir metallic marker. My title was made with a very old QuicKutz die set. Around my edges, I applied some Nuvo Expanding Mousse in Worn Linen with a palette knife, sweeping it towards the center of my page. I heat set it to help it expand. I applied it fairly tin, so it didn’t expand too much, which was what I wanted.
My horizontal panel has Kaisercrafts’s Fading Dots stamp on it, applied a few times to fill in the entire space. I used Spiced Marmalade Distress Oxide for it. Combining all of these products helped me to create a fun mixed media scrapbook page. I love using a wide variety of techniques on a page, because there is so much room to play. If you’d like to join in the White Rose Crafts April Sketch Challenge, you’ll need to head over to the White Rose Crafts Gallery and add your creation to the appropriate album. You can make anything you’d like with the sketch. Then, head over to White Rose Crafts LLC to check out some of the products I used on today’s layout. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
