joyfulnana yes, thanks for another 8.5x11 sketch! Your example is gorgeous, I really love the black mixed in with the pastels and the corrugated paper really adds a punch to the spread. Love those floral alphas too!
Love your take joyfulnana , I love that corrugated cardstock and the triangle paper on the right hand side and your little stack of the banner and word stickers, very cool!
Here's my take, I was just doing the left hand side - honestly! My texture is Nuvo dots and also the pink circles on the left hand side which I thought were a bit like a bottle/drink stain. I used Nuvo pink embossing paste.
Got 22 for this one. 1 for a LO, 1 for sharing, 5 for sketch + twist, #3, #7, #9, #12, #15, #21, #15, #21, #29, #31, #33, #38, #40 + BONUS, #42, #44 and Sept Stash Challenge - handwriting.
Another awesome page, kiwigirl: proof you can create a gorgeous page about ANYTHING!!! That pink circle/splotch piece at the bottom is great! I love the neon pink with the black, how it fits the theme, and how it balances all the excitement at the right.
Linda great koala page! I couldn't see the title cause I hadn't scrolled down enough and I was like, is that a koala..... is it? scroll down, well yes it is! Love the colours you picked to use with the photos, they're perfect!
Lush LO Meelleek! I love the strips top and bottom and your big title along with the house on the other side, it's all fab!
kiwigirl this is fabulous! I love the hot, bright colors and you are rockin' the black backgrounds! I used to use black quite often. Love the bottle stain. I don't need to be getting into nuvo paste too! :
linda - Love those colors! And that you took the sketch and made it work for you!
Meelleek cute pages! I love how you used up the extra space on the left with a bigger title!
Chinagirl828 I love seeing your layouts with the older photos and your clusters on either side are awesome. I love that little hedgehog!
You ladies that are doing every sketch are my heros!
Here is my two pager. I flipped the sketch horizontally, and changed the shape of the pp a bit, but I think you can still see the sketch here. I will add up the other points later, but I am claiming 5 for the sketch plus the texture twist (I added a couple of stick on sewing patches at the bottom right).
i went with the left page of the sketch and have to thank you joyfulnana because i am not crazy about the background paper i used, but it reminded me of the layers of your sketch and i'm actually quite happy with how it turned out my texture element for the twist was going to involve some tearing of the edge, but then i realized that my puffy stickers had a ton of texture and the edge would probably be overkill.
grammadee love the striped paper and stars, they help create a lot of movement on your pages, love the fun title too! Chinagirl828 I don’t think you could’ve chosen more perfect papers if you’d tried! Love the little flags and hedgie joural card (sassafras had the cutest animals!). you added just enough birthday themed stuff! Meelleek how cute!! hooray for using new stuff, too! That witch paper is just darling and so perfect for your little trick-or-treater; love the cluster with the pumpkin bucket that looks like candy spilling out. All the Halloween icons really add to the fun of this spread! Linda I love how you used bright colors with the mostly neutral photos and combined both pages of the sketch into one LO! The flowers add the perfect texture to go with mr. fuzzy buns koala
Wow Chinagirl828 loving your papers, so 70s! Also the clusters and that adorable little hedgehog, so awesome!
grammadee I love that stripey paper, it's awesome! Totally love those roller skates too, and the funky title, very cool & groovy LO!
stinkerbelle love that you can farm your alpacas now! And the perfect puffy embellishment - it's not even random!!!! Love that background paper, I used it and put Nuvos all around the edges of the different layers once (labour of love I tell ya!). I adore your stars too, so perfect
So I squashed the 2 pages together here, but kept the "thick" black line in the page-break area and turned it into 2 paper strips. For texture, I used texture paste, plus I cut out edge pieces with a punch and backed them, plus I had the fringed yellow cardstock (I was thinking towel when I did the fringing. Not sure it works, but it's different!)
