Sunday Sketch with Angela



Hello friends, happy Sunday!
It's Angela here and today I am on the blog with our Sunday Sketch Challenge. This is the sketch I played with this week




It is a beautiful 12x12 inch sketch with a single photo and a fun banner on the side. I created my page using The Best Parts Life Crafted kit as well as September Add-on kit. Here is what I came up with!




At first I planned to use the pink patterned paper from the Add-on kit, paper Blooming from Fresh Bouquet collection  by Crate Paper, but I preferred to save those gorgeous flowers on the reverse side for another project. Also, I wanted to get messy and create my color background. So, after the initial hesitation, I chose white card-stock for as the base of my page. This came with the Add-on kit too.




Just a little side note; the layout is dedicate to my friend Valentina, my sweet girlfriend I spent the summer with. Here is the meaning of the title, Vale is the abbreviation of her name and I stamped it on the layout using my favorite stamp ever, Citrus Twist Kits Madison Alphabet.




Now, back to the background. I used Distress Oxide inks in yellow, pink and green. First, I added some water to the pigment and used them with a brush, like watercolors. When the color was dry, I added a second layer of color of pure pigment using a brayer.





Instead of using tickets and numbers like the sketch, I fussy cut a few tags from paper Old School by Heidi Swapp and hanged them to a piece of string to create the banner.




I stamped a few phrases from September Traveler's Notebook stamp in black, to balance the page with the black title. Last, I added a few die cuts and stickers from the kits and voilĂ !



If you'd like to see me in action, here is the process video of the layout.




Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you like the layout and feel inspired to create your own version of the sketch. If so, please share it on the Citrus Twits Kits Fan page on Facebook, we would love to see your pages!
Love, NG
