Here is this week’s sketch:
I love a good diagonal circle layout, which you can see some examples of here, here and here, so this sketch was right up my alley! I was also challenged to create a project with a white background, and to use lots of layers and create texture.
Here is my take on the sketch:
I created lots of layers with my circles. There are lots of circles popped up with foam squares, there are some glued straight to the white yardstick, and there are 2 circles that I cut out of the white cardstock ahead of time (using my silhouette cameo), and I asked them with pattern paper and foam tape.
I also created a frame for my photo with circle metal dies, and I added some texture with machine stitching, and depth by popping it up with foam tape.
I created more texture by roughening up the edges of some of the circles. I also stitched through a few of the circles with the + patterns as well.
On some of the elements, I add foam tape to just the top of the embellishment, and glue the bottom of the embellishment with liquid glue. I did that with the hand sticker (which I backed with white cardstock, and fussy cut out). It makes the embellishment look like it’s popping off the page in a little different way then had I added foam tape to the entire embellishment. I hope that makes sense, lol!
There were so many elements that were perfect for a school themed girl layout…the lightbulb and the kitty notebook from the HKC exclusive ephemera pack are so perfect to highlight my daughter’s Honor Roll awards!
I love how my layout turned out, and I hope you do as well. It turned out so girly, and fun, and I love the sketchy vibes of the Crate Paper collection!
