Stuck?! Sketches

Happy Friday everyone! Do you have scrappy plans for the weekend? If so, then please check out the April 15th sketch from Stuck?! Sketches...

And here's how I used it...

For this page I used a photo of Santiago and Paolina with the Easter Bunny when we went to an Easter Egg Hunt at a local church last year.

I thought the background paper, which is from the Dear Lizzy Serendipity line, was perfect with the colors in Paolina's outfit. I faded the center out a bit with some gesso, and then I used the packaging technique with my gelatos to get a bit of a watercolor effect peeking out from behind the layers of paper. I also took a watercolor brush and splattered a bit of the paint around the layout. Since I don't have a sewing machine, I just did some handstitching. Most of the layers and fussy-cut embellishments are also papers from the Dear Lizzy Serendipity line, but the glittery pink & turquoise circular/floral paper is a scrap from an older SEI line. I think it might have been a birthday-themed line?

Thanks so much for looking. I really encourage you to head over to the Stuck?! Sketches blog to check out what the rest of our Creative Team did with the April 15th sketch. And we would love for you to join as well! Make sure you link up by April 29th for a chance to win our monthly prize.
