So the challenge for the April Guest Design Spot at Sketchy Thursdays is this...
1. Prompt - Fill in the blanks: "If I could __________, I would ________."
2. Technique - Mist or paint IN PINK.
3. Sketchy Twist - Use this sketch:
I had to give the prompt quite a bit of thought, but kept coming back to "if i could create daily"...so I went with it! Next, the PINK mist or paint...well, there's just not a whole lot of pink in my scrappy supplies at all...guess that happens when you are scrapping mostly BOY stuff :o) I found some PINK acrylic paint & some large bubble wrap @ work & decided that would create a fun circle background...so here's my layout:
I just have to say that I had a blast creatingthis layout! Not only was the paint fun, but I also went with the 8.5 x 11 format...totally out of the norm for me...I can totally see myself doing more of this size...I also played with the sketch quite a bit, but was totally inspired by it :o)
My journaling (using those wonderful tiny alphas by Making Memories!): if i could create daily i would be on cloud 9
Here's a close up of my title embellishment:
How fun is that gem pin!?! I love it!
