Hello all! I have another 2-page layout to share today! I was inspired by several challenges for this one. We will start with the sketch for Stuck?!Sketches:
I rotated the sketch 90 degrees and used it for the left-hand page of my layout.
Next up is a color challenge from Lasting Memories:
Arent't the colors and inspiration just yummy?! I loved the ombre and the blues. I really want to do my nails like that too!
I didn't have a ton of blue patterned paper and nothing with that pretty ombre effect, so I made my own with inks and masks. I used a large, full page mask for the right side and a smaller mask, with circles to connect the pages, on the left side. I used an ink blending tool and 5 colors of dye ink to create the effect. I had a pretty lengthy story to tell with this layout too, so I typed it on my computer and put a square with an ombre effect behind it before printing it out.
I used some phrase stamp on the right side of the layout to add some interest. I also punched a little banner to put in the cluster on this page to mimic the banners on the left side.
monochromatic challenge going on now on her blog, which this fits as well. ;)
