SWEET SUNSHINE _ Citrus Twist Kits

This week, i joined Anna and Emma on the Citrus Twist Kits sketch challenge.  HEre is the sketch i used for this page:

   I love a good sketch as it eases my process and takes away the guessing work from it.  For this, i used mostly the April Add-on kit with a few extra goodies from the CTK shop.

it all started with a bit of blue paint in the background.  I used the new Maggie Holmes paints from the SUnny DAys collection available at the shop, and a dry brush to create the distress look of the background.

After that, i followed the sketch,  first i laid the cut file, followed by adding layers behind the picture to match those in the sketch.  I used papers from the APril kit to create coordinating layers.

To embellish the page, i fussy cut florals from the Sunny Days paper in the kit and place them as a cascade behind the picture.   The rest of the embellishments comes from the ephemera pack, and sticker book from the Sunny Days collection.

To finish the page, first i trimmed the page on all sides, distress the edges and glued it to a paper that matched the color of the background also included in the kit.  Here  i used a combination of the stickers, ephemera and Add-on stamps to set my title in place.

I love how this turned out and how easy it came together by following the sketch.   Remember  you can check all the materials at the CTK Shop and a new sketch every SUnday in the CTK blog.
