Where’d He Go? layout – Sweet Peach August sketch

Earlier this month, a lovely sketch was posted on the Sweet Peach Crop Shop blog. I decided to combine it with the Pink Paislee color palette for July since those are the papers I would be using. The palette is also due today and I hadn’t worked it yet!

These photos were taken when Larry was playing peek-a-boo with Christian, who is 4 months old in these pics. Every time Larry would disappear, Christian seemed genuinely concerned about where his daddy had gone! 😀

I inked the background and handstitched the banners. Ideally I would have liked to have the “go” part of the titling done in clear alphas outlined with a touch of glitter, but since I didn’t have any, I scraped the glitter off of those 2 letters and coated them with light blue stickles to have them blend into the background more. Here’s what I came up with for the sketch and palette:

Materials:

Pink Paislee Parisian Anthology Divine Damask paper
PP Daily Junque Map paper
Bazzill cardstock
PP Daily Junque Ephemera pack
PP Hocus Pocus glitter alphas
stickles
Distress Inks
Color Box Pigment inks
DMC embroidery floss

Adhesives:

Helmar adhesive runner
Helmar Zap Dots

This is the Sweet Peach August sketch I was working with:

This is Pink Paislee’s July Hot Hues Palette I was using:
