Stay Wild My Child

Hey everyone. I was asked to be a guest designer at the Sketchy Boards Challenge Facebook group this month!! Super excited to be asked by them!! I really love their challenges. For the October challenge you were to use gears and the sketch. I had this photo of my grandson on his balance bike which I thought would be perfect to use with gears. I used Jillibean Soup's '2 Cool for School' line, which has pattern paper with gears, so I of course fussy cut a bunch out. I also had some metal gears from Prima which I attached with brads. Below are some close ups and the challenge. Make sure to check them out on Facebook. You don't need a blog to enter, just message them your layout. There's lots of inspiration to be found. Thanks for stopping by.


Hey Girl

Hey everyone. There's a tricky challenge at The Studio Challenges today. You are to use only one sheet of pattern paper. I was a little nervous when I first saw the challenge but then found this gorgeous floral paper with a fun stripe on the back. I was also able to use the thin strip on top of the paper. I was able to mat my photos with what was left. No scraps to store from this sheet. There was only tiny bits left. Lots of mixed media on the background also helped to save the day. The paper was from Vicki Boutin's 'Wildflower and Honey' collection. This collection is STUNNING!! There are a ton of embellishments as well. For the background I first added watered down art crayons with the packaging technique. I then added dry art crayons with a stencil brush through a stencil. I then taped up a word stencil so that only the words I wanted were visible. I then added dry gold glaze with a stencil brush through that stencil. Love how it turned out!! Thanks for stopping by.
