Sunday Sketch with Marie-Pierre

Hello everyone, Marie here today with you for another Sunday Sketch Challenge. It's such a fun sketch with lots of possibilities. I hope you'll like it!

The sketch has 3 photos, a small space for journaling and a fair amount of white space. I used much bigger photos which reduced my white space a lot, but still, I could fit in lots of embellishments and even all the things I wanted to say.

My layout is about our January 1st celebration with my family. The feel I wanted to give to the layout is one of joy, and I wanted to show the bond and friendship and love that exist in our family. I achieved that with the title and the pictures I chose.  The title is big, bold and vibrant and the words "delight" and "magic" are just perfect for the idea I wanted to carry. I chose pictures with lots of big, genuine smiles, people looking into the eyes of others, and feet and arms interlacing each others.

There are a lot of things going here with 3 busy pictures so I used the embellishments to calm the layout and to hold everything together. To do so I placed my embellishments in a triangle (the third point of the triangle being the title in the middle), and I made sure that my photos were inside that triangle. I then stitched all around the middle square of patterned paper.

There were no christmasy colors in the January kit so I decided to just try and keep the color combo calm and to not have it compete with the colors in my photos. I sticked to yellows and pinks and added some black dots at the very end to add some punch.

The black enamel dots are also accentuating the stamped details that you see in my title cluster.

It's now your turn to play with the sketch. And if you feel like it, go ahead and share your layout with us in the gallery for a chance to win a 5$ gift certificate to spend in the Citrus Twist Kits store. Don't forget to put today's date in the title. Good luck and most importantly, have fun!!
