Sunday Sketch | Pink Space Buns

Sketches and I are like two peas and a pod. Sometimes I get stumped when it comes to 12x12 layouts, and when that happens I turn to a fabulous sketch.  There’s nothing like a great sketch to get the creative wheels turning, and this CTK one is no exception.

For this particular sketch I knew I wanted to keep the ripped pieces at the top, and I also wanted to keep the great grid in the middle, so I started with some ripped bazzil colored cardstock. I love that it comes in any color I could ever need.

I layered up a bright pink and a yellow for my ripped sheets at the top.  I decided I wanted my accent on the upper and lower sections, including the background of the grid, to be a scrap of pink book page from a prior project. It brought in the great peachy color, that tied in it all together with that vibrant striped patterned paper.

Next I got started on that great 3x4 grid section.  I decided I’d arrange my photo on the right side, as in the sketch, and I’d stick pretty close to it on the opposing side too. I decided to fussy cut the great bright pink star sheet of cardstock from this month’s kit. Those stars were the perfect addition to match my “Pink Space Buns” theme.

I layered in some wax paper, my old book page, fussy-cut stars, and various ephemera pieces to create a bright and vibrant layout from this sketch. I wanted a super colorful layout, with big punches of pink, so I think I achieved my goal!

I finished off my layout with some journaling, and just like the sketch, I added my giant title to the bottom, with the amazing chipboard alphas in this month’s kit!
