Playing along with Let's Get Sketchy Challenge #2

Let's Get Sketchy posted Challenge #2 ... and I was excited to play along! This is the sketch that was posted ...

My take on the sketch makes use of My Mind's Eye Breaking Free collection.  I enjoyed the blues and browns and thought they worked well with my niece's outfit!  I love using pearl flourishes ...and thought that this layout just called for one!  Also, you'll notice that I substituted a journalling tag (instead of the second photo) ... mostly because my sister Elaine gave me this photo & I didn't have a second one!


 I was playing around with various punches, die cuts, buttons and hemp and this is the cluster that resulted ... I used some Glossy Accents to add a bit of sheen to the word "Zoe".  (I rarely do a layout that doesn't have a glossy accent somewhere!)


I layered various size stars (from my new star die cut) ... using pop dots for dimension and Glossy Accents to give some shine to the top stars!


I created a chain of stars for the banner across the top corner ... and even though someone once told me that eyelets are "old school", I refuse to believe it and keep using them everywhere!


AND OF COURSE ... I made some cards with my scraps!



Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to stop in again tomorrow!
