THE 2 OF YOU - Scrapbook Nerd
It is time for our monthly Sketch Challenge over at Scrapbook Nerd, and this month's sketch is a playful and simple one that will make you pull scraps of different patterned papers to construct your page.
I love the quilted look on the background of the page, so i chose to stay close to the sketch when creating my page, and decided to use the Spoonful of Soul collection from Jillibean to create this page.
The background uses 2" squares from various papers from the collection. Once i glued on the page, i used simple hand stitching to join them together, and curl t he edges of the papers a bit.
For the picture, i added layers of the same papers behind it, and added clusters of embellishments (all from the collection) along with feather cut outs; these were created using a cut file from Handipaper and then painted gold with Shimmer watercolor from Prima Marketing.
I chose to keep the location of the title and lines of journal as in the sketch, and used bold black alphas (Shine On collection- Amy Tan) for this. A few splatters of gold and black ink complete the page.
Stop by the Scrapbook Nerd Shop to check all the materials used in this page, and check the sketch in the Scrapbook Nerd Friends and Family page on Facebook.
