Sunday Sketch with Emma

Hi CTK friends!  Emma on the blog today to share my layout using this week's Sunday Sketch. First up, let's look at the sketch for today:

Such a awesome sketch, right?!  And here's the layout I created:

I really wanted to try and stay true to the sketch this week because I love it so (funny how you can just click with a sketch/layout and be inspired by it!).   Because I used one of the Pocket Life journaling cards I had to alter it a little because of the size (6x8) of my pages but it's not too far off!

I even broke out the modelling paste for this page!  Every now and then I get these bright ideas that I can do "messy" on my pages; it's not true but I like to give it a crack anyway ;)  Not all that adventurous when you use white paste on a white page though is it? Ha! My page obviously started with the paste and I picked pieces from the Pocket Life that fit in with the sketch.

The Pocket Life kit this month is so fun and colourful and I found it a perfect match for my photo.  I used a couple layers behind my photo (scrap piece of the dictionary paper from the Main and of one of the 6x4 cards).  I layered one of the die-cut cards and the 3x4 journaling card ontop of those and machine stitched them in place, then popped the photo on top of those!  I typed a short bit of journaling onto one of the die-cut tags and tucked it (and another piece) underneath my photo.

 For my title I used one of the super fun word paper clips but put the red tag die-cut underneath so it was easier to read (the black got a little lost on the dark colours of my photo) - plus the red tag matches in with the red of the 3x4 card!

To finish off my layout I added a few of the puffy stickers at the top and bottom of my page.  I really love the circle puffy stickers (circlessssss forever <3) but the words didn't fit with what I wanted on my page, so I just cut them in half and used one at the top and one at the bottom to balance things out!

It was such a simple page to put together because I kept with the sketch - I didn't have to (over)think anything.  This sketch was a perfect match for my style/size!

Now it's your turn! To play along with this week's Sunday Sketch Challenge, create a layout based off of today's sketch, upload it to the gallery with today's date (3/18) in the title, and you are in for a chance to win a $5 gift certificate to the CTK Store!
