CHRISTMAS CUTIE - Scrapbook Nerd
It is sketch week at Scrapbook Nerd. Since we are so close to Christmas, i decided to use the sketch to document a picture of my goddaughter from last year's festivities. But before i show you what i have created, let me share with you the sketch:
Sketches are a great source of inspiration and a map-of-sorts when it comes to creating layouts. This week's sketch is a perfect way to combine many manufacturers and techniques in one page.
I added a bit of diluted Distress Oxide (Cracked Pistachio and Peacock Feather) in the background of the page. While it dried, i started to work on the paper strips for the page.
I cut random triangular strips of paper from one of the specialty papers from Maggie Holmes Heritage collection, as well as papers from the 6x6 paper pad from Pebbles. I diluted VIcki Boutin Gold glaze and splattered it on white cardstock to create a texture paper for the layout.
To continue the clear look of the acetate paper, i chose to die cut stars from Metallic Kraft paper using the Altenew Bundle of Joy die set, The stars were glued onto strips of acetate, then trimmed to fit inside the strip.
I clustered the papers to follow the look of the sketch,but not covered the entire page with the strips. Instead, i chose to just cover half of the page, and used the empty space to add my title using a combination of alphas from Pebbles and Pink Paislee. The embellishment phrases come from the Simple Stories Say Cheese Christmas collection.
I love how this turned out, and how nicely the paper strips bring the focus of the page to the picture of my goddaughter.
