Stuck?! Sketches

Happy Sunday everyone! Who's ready for a new sketch to play with this? If so, please check out the May 15th sketch from Stuck?! Sketches...

Here's what I did with it...

I had a lot of fun with this page. The photos are my favorite part...they are pictures of Paolina a few weeks after she had turned one, completely buried in all of the kids' stuffed animals. At first all you could see was her face, but then she popped up and said "Boo!"

I had fun working with the sketch too. At first I looked at the circle elements, which is an aspect of the design that I love, but I wondered how I could achieve a similar effect since the only electronic cutting machine I have is a basic Cricut, Then I had an "Ah hah!" moment when I remembered my stash of KI Memories lace cardstock. I found a sheet of white hearts, used some of my Glimmer Mists to make it a coordinating shade of pink, and then trimmed it down to the desired size. I also did some minimal mixed media work on the background paper...just a little gesso to tone down the busy pattern and then some ink splatters. Normally I don't gravitate towards pastel color schemes, but I like that this paper had a few pops of bright pink mixed in, and it really went perfectly with the colors in the photos.

I hope this gave you some inspiration. For tons more, please head over to the Stuck?! Sketches blog to see how our talented Creative Team interpreted this amazing sketch. Don't forget that if you play along and link up your page by May 29th, you will have a chance at an awesome prize.

Hope you have a great week!
