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
