Good morning everyone! Sarah here this morning to share with you a new layout made with a 80’s-90’s theme.
So for me, I chose my sketch first to work with:
Like I said before, I have a ton of sketches pinned on Pinterest and this one comes from there to but it originally comes from DesignerDigitals.com
The first thing I thought of with this theme this month was a shirt I had when I was a kid. So I decided to head to my Silhouette and make a new cutfile for my background.
lol, I thought the cutfile fit quite well with what my old shirt looked like, but I do remember my shirt being black and all the designs were filled in with different neon colors.
I thought the We R Memory Keepers, It Factor, to play with. I liked the neon colors and cool patterns. I backed my cut file and then started the layering behind the photo like it shows in the sketch.
I added a doily behind my photo and then added the teal strip and bright yellow. For my title I grabbed a gold frame, clipped it off and slid it under in center of my photo. I love this old goofy picture of me and my sister, we were always together and since that was the first thing I thought when I saw this picture, I figured I’d use it as a title. I saw that the sketch had another strip of what looked like washi tape behind the photo, I grabbed my Dear Lizzy washi, it was a light teal with cool little squares on it, again I had a shirt like that when I was younger too, but I slid that washi behind the photo and then started add my pretty sequins and cork butterflies.
I pulled some little ephemera pieces from Pink Paislee-C’est La Vie collection and added the little label and for me I wanted a little more so I added a ticket on top of that. I wanted more embellishing then the sketch showed, So I added a nest of thread behind my cork butterflies then added sequins from Gotta Love Emojis and Wild&Free.
On the sketch it showed something wrapped around the photo, but I didn’t want to add that, So I didn’t. But I did like the look of the sewing around the layout, So I grabbed my sewing Machine and sewed a few wonky lines around my layout, then I decided I would add a little stitching to the bottom of my photo too. The sewing machine stitched so easily threw the cork butterflies and I loved the way it looked. The sequins I added matched this collection perfectly too!!
Thanks so much for stopping by and see what I made with this fun theme this month and I hope you come back to see what else we come up with!
