Two Peas - OUAS May Challenge

What a day - the sun is shining and in a few hours, I am going to be whisked away on a surprise adventure, by my wonderful friend for my birthday!

Before the festivities begin, I'd love to share with you (and especially you, Denise van Deventer!) my layout for the May challenge at Once Upon a Sketch. It's a great sketch and we'd love to see your entries!

As it's a two image sketch, I've chose to use some pics which I have been wanting to scrap for ages. There is no mistaking my two are related - at age two, they look like they could be twins!

































I've started with some gorgeous 'Scallop' paper from Glitz's Unchartered Waters. I've used both the (backing) of the Imaginarium Designs chipboard letters as a stencil and the alphas themselves.

























Playing around with some Color Me Happy peekaboos. How I love my Greatest View flair!









































I treated the chipboard with two shades of Color Shine (Gold Lamé & Sweet Cherry) and similarly, I tried to create an Ombre effect with Mustard, Georgia Peach & Sweet Cherry). I was able to create a sort of pinboard effect and tuck a few bits and bobs into the Cross Hatch, by snipping parts of it.

























I've used a Louise Nelson designer 'Cross Hatch' and some Capital Letters from Imaginarium Designs

This is the sketch and the theme is NUMBERS

This month, we ask you to include a number , ANY number, on your layout. It has to be VISIBLE on your layout and it can be in your title or part of your journalling. It can be a date, an age, a house number, an anniversary, the number of children you have, the number of pets ....anything you like. But please make sure that there is some explanation through your journalling, somewhere on your page or blog about what this number means to you.

Your layout must incorporate this theme and the sketch
Materials used: Glitz Unchartered Waters, Imaginarium Designs chipboard, Glitz Color Me Happy washi tape, Peekaboos & 'Polka' paper; Elle's Studio tags, Studio Calico Sundrifter wood veneer; Greatest View flair

Hope to see you all there!
