In the Spotlight – DT Layout for Sketch #94

Charlotte created an amazing sketch for us to work with on the Let’s Capture These Sketches blog that was really fun to work with. It also happens that The Paper Variety is having a circle based challenge. To enter, your project must have at least 4 circles and be paper based. I’m pretty sure sketch #94 will make entering the Paper Variety challenge a snap! 😀

I decided to go with a photo of my daughter when she was just 1 1/2 years old. We were at one of Larry’s huge family’s summer reunions and some of the older family members were playing their guitars and singing. Well my little shoeless tot decided to start dancing right there in the middle of circle of spectators and quickly stole the show. The non-concentric circles made me think of a spotlight, so I figured the topic was perfect for the sketch. I also got to use the fab Webster’s Pages papers that Fia so kindly sent me during my dt term at Sketches4All. Here’s what I came up with for the example for the sketch and my entry in The Paper Variety challenge:


Webster’s Pages Trendsetter papers
WP princess petal
WP cameo
WP whimsies (resin flowers)
WP vintage inspired netting
WP Vintage Sparkler
WP Storytellers Alpha stickers
Want 2 Scrap bling flourishes


Helmar 450 Quick Dry
Helmar adhesive runner
Helmar acid free glue


Martha Stewart Circle Cutter
