This weeks layout is another double challenge. Of course, its the beginning of the month so we have a new challenge from About a Boy. Their challenges come on the 1st & 15th of every month. This challenge is to use Chevrons on your layout. Even though I misted Chevrons on my last layout, I did find some paper to fit this challenge. I also won the prize for the month of March at About a Boy. Thank You Ladies!
. Every week we have a new sketch from Lets Get Sketchy. I could not find 3 photos for this sketch. I did find 3 but they were blurry so I decided to go with 2 photos. I had an idea for the chevrons right away but looked closer & they were more like arrows so I went with this paper instead.
White & Black Cardstock
Bazzill Basics Paper
Basic Grey What's Up around the world paper
Sweet Dream Diecuts
Pink Paislee Artisan Chipboard
Ranger Diamond Stickles
Tim Holtz Salty Ocean, Peacock Feathers, Faded Jeans, Milled Lavendar, Squeezed Lemonade & Walnut Stain Distress Inks
I received the border & shadowed sweet dream diecuts from Kelly at Club CK. I punched out stars on the Bazzill Blue paper & then filled them in with the stickles. The chipboard stars have a resist pattern on them so when I inked them, the pattern shows through. I ink them until I get the shade of color that I want & then dab with a paper towel. The more you ink, the better the pattern shows up. I then added stickles to the edges of some of the stars & the inside of the cut out star.
I am hoping to find some time to get another layout done for a couple challenges at Club CK. If that happens, I will be back here posting on Saturday or Sunday.
