I am so excited to be back with you guys with Make It Yours Monday!!! Today I am playing along with the October challenge created by the talented Laura.
I started out, as I usually do, with a piece of American Crafts Textured White Cardstock. I used Shimmerz Coloringz in Pretty In Pink, Heidi Ho Blue and Well Blue Me Down to create splatter in the background. I also added some Gold Heidi Swapp colors shine for some shine. I used the Pretty in Pink and Heidi Ho Blue Shimmerz to spritz 3 of the White Lace Doilies for the bottom layer of my photo cluster. I set all of that aside to dry and started on my photo cluster.
I decided to use the Fancy Free paper pad I got from the shop as my photo layers, the colors were perfect! I used the green arrow paper, the pink polka dots, and the stitched papers for the photo mats. I also added some gold scalloped washi from Jen Hadfield to bring in some more of the gold. I added some strips of ATG adhesive under the top photo mat and secured 3 pieces of thread in pink, along one side. The perfect sequins for this layout were the Pinky Pie Pinks, and the Pink and Blues from the Spring Blooms mix. After stringing the sequins on the thread, I ran another strip of ATG adhesive on the other side of the photo mat and tucked in the ends. I added some scotch quick dry adhesive to secure both sides of the thread ends.
When all the wet media was dry, I adhered the doilies to the back of the photo cluster and popped it up on some foam adhesive. Then, I sprinkled some of the sequins I strung on the threads throughout the splatters. I stitched some pink crochet thread in the corners and added my title. To bring some more gold, I added a glitter bow in the top right corner and some tiny word stickers.
I LOVED using this sketch. It was SOOO fun and it has a great flow to keep your eye moving around the page, but keeping the photo the main focus!
