Sunday Sketch With Aimee

Hey there Citrus Twist friends it's Aimee here to welcome you back to another Sunday Sketch! Let's take a look at the sketch: 

Isn't she lovely? I decided to go ahead and flip the sketch on its side. Remember — sketches are meant to strike inspiration and don't necessarily have to be in the same orientation or even format for that matter. 

For this particular layout I wanted to use the Market Square Add-On kit that's available in the shop— I still have a bunch of this kit left to work through. I selected a beautiful deep green paper from the kit and oriented it vertically behind my photos. I like how the green pairs really well with my photos and I loved the scripty title shown in the sketch so I chose my own puffy word from the Fresh Starts Puffy Phrase & Icon sticker sheet. I thought the black, "happy" was more fitting for my color scheme. 

Next I layered in some of those beautiful florals from the Market Square die-cut and Chipboard sets. They aren't shown in the sketch but since I am using it more as a guide this is okay! I also added neutral toned die-cuts from the Fresh Starts Die-Cut Ephemera pack and precious doilies from the add-on kit

The sketch indicates a place for handwritten or typed journaling but instead I decided to create my journaling with the All The Things stamp set and I'm so glad I did! I think it turned out adorable and it's definitely something I will be doing again. I added black acrylic paint splatters to the page by wetting my paint brush before dipping it into my paint and took care not to splash my photos. 

After my splatters dried I embellished with a few hearts and voila— there is my Sunday Sketch complete! You don't have to follow sketches down to the letter and I'm so glad I let this sketch inspire me to make this sweet and priceless page. I hope you enjoyed following along and I'll see you next time! Happy creating!
