Sunday Sketch with Emma

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

And here's the page I created:

As you can see I've not changed too much from the sketch - the layout is basically the same.

The page started with the ink splatters to match the sketch.  I have a love/hate relationship with "messy" things - particularly ink splatters.  They never seem to go where I want them to no matter how careful I am.  Took me 3 attempts to get it right, haha.  I mean I get that they're meant to be a little random but I obsess about the size and spacing..I know, I'm crazy right? ;)

Once I was happy with my splatters, I picked my photo - I love it because it has alot of gorgeous blue sky but what really I love is the sun flare in the top right of the photo.  I went with a yellow patterned paper (sun seeing my logic? ha!) and teamed it up with a neutral pattern papter, then layered those underneath my photo just like the sketch.

My title on the RHS was the most fun to put together!  I brought together a few pieces from the Main kit and layered them all down the RHS of my photo (popping a few foam dots behind a few of them to give it a bit of dimension).  Those gold Thickers from the Main kit are gorgeous so I paired it up with a few of those die-cuts. 

Because the title/phrase words had extended the full height of my photo on the RHS I just popped my journaling on the bottom left of my photo (being sure I didn't block any of those rather specifically placed ink splatters!).

To finish off my page I machined stitched at the top/bottom of my page (in black cotton for a bit of contrast) and popped a few of the gold thicker stars around my page to match in with the gold letters of my title (balance things out given I didn't have gold anywhere else).

This sketch was such a fun and easy one to work with.

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 (12/17) in the title, and you are in for a chance to win a $5 gift certificate to the CTK Store!
