I am a little behind this week. Usually I get my post done on Friday but not this week. This means I am a little late with the layout for Lets Get Sketchy. The good thing with this layout, I am able to use it for 3 different challenges.
I started this layout on Saturday with intentions for the sketch challenge & decided I would also use it for the new scrapbooking challenge blog called About a Boy. Then the challenge for this coming week at Club CK was to place a heart & the word love on your layout. Bonus was to use washi tape. The sketch already had a heart on it so I thought I would incorporate the word love on the layout also.
Here is the sketch from Lets Get Sketchy:
Black, White & Red Cardstock
Jillibean Soup Black Salt Chevron Paper
My Mind's Eye Fine & Dandy Tickled Pink Banner Stickers
My Mind's Eye Blue Twine
Brown Cardstock Oval Tag
Tim Holtz Harlequin Elements Grungeboard
Tim Holtz Word Sticks
Tim Holtz Symphony Tissue Tape
Tim Holtz Barn Door Distress Stain
Tim Holtz Pine Needles Distress Ink
Tim Holtz Salty Ocean Distress Ink
Tim Holtz Picket Fence Stickles
Studio 71 White Acrylic Gesso
3D Foam Squares
Beacon 3-in-1 Liquid Glue
I placed the foam squares behind each letter to make them stand off the banners. I inked the tag, which I made on my Cricut. I added Gesso to the brown oval tag that I received from a peep at Club CK. I inked the felt Celebrate piece with the Distress Stain because the Distress Ink looked more pink than red. I inked the heart with Distress Ink & a blending tool. I poked a hole in the heart with my We R Memory Keepers piercing tool. I used the Sew Easy fancy floss to tie the heart & word stick together.I applied gesso to the stars & then added stickles on top of that. I placed the tissue tape on top of the red cardstock. The scallop edge was made from a friends border punch.
I have made my Valentines Card but will share it after Valentines Day.
Have a Great week & Happy Valentines Day!
