Hi! The latest challenge at Beyond Grey Challenges: BGC #51 is a wonderful sketch for a layout.
I was very happy when this challenge was announced as I have been wanting to get into scrap booking seriously for a long time. I have, of course, done several digital layouts, but physical layouts are a different ball game altogether!
So here is my take on this fun sketch.
I found this lovely pic of my husband and the kids playing and decided to use it. I wanted to use bright colours in the layout to convey a sense of joy and fun.
I converted the pic to gray scale to make it stand out. The little tab is to note the year this pic was taken.
The paper pieced band is made up of little squares of paper scraps that I die cut, pasted and then stitched over. The floral DP is actually a tissue paper that I stuck to a piece of card stock using cling film.
the plane and
the boat are all from the Shapeabilities Play Time Cut/Emboss & Stencil Die set which I bought from Itsy Bitsy ages ago.
The glitter alphas are also from Itsy Bitsy. I changed the position of the title since I did not want to take away any thing from the band which actually reminds me of a warm and cosy quilt. The final touch were the dashed lines which add some movement to the design.
I am entering this layout in the following challenges:
Challenge #206 - Wheelie Fun + sentiment
I have used 3 DPs, 3 toy die cuts and there are three people in the pic.
