It's Monday which means there is a new sketch at Nuts About Sketches. This week it is this really fun one- pager:
I decided to use some photos from a friend's little girl's first birthday. I flipped the sketch horizontally because of the direction my friend and her daughter's gaze in the photo in the upper left (I didn't want them looking off the page). I also only used one photo in that area instead of two as well.
I pulled out some washi tape and used that in a few areas on this layout. I love that is is such a quick and easy way to add a strip of color to a layout. After I had most of my stuff attached to the layout, I decided I needed something for texture between the two photo areas. I was going to try mist, but the only black mist I have has purple shimmer in it so it wouldn't really work with this color scheme. Then I remembered the glitter splatters! I took liquid glue and made spots randomly between the photos and sprinkled the glue with black glitter.
I also used my Cricut for some of the embellishments. I cut the dog using the "Boys Will Be Boys" cartridge and the bone is from the "Paper Doll Dress Up" cartridge. A few chipboard pieces and gems scattered around the page finished up the embellishing.
