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:

Materials:

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

Adhesives:

Helmar 450 Quick Dry
Helmar adhesive runner
Helmar acid free glue

Tools:

Martha Stewart Circle Cutter

TFL!

Scrapbook Challenges Layouts – First Post on the New Blog

Sorry I’m a little late posting these. Since I was working on transfering content from my previous blog to this one, I wasn’t trying to add new posts in the interim, so my next few posts are just to catch up.

Scrapbook Challenges hosted a really fun Sizzling Summer event last month. It started with the Seasons of Change Hop On that I posted about previously then continued with 15 different sketches posted through the month (one new one each day M-F, then you had the last week to catch up on any sketches you missed). Though I didn’t do them all, I did have a lot of fun playing along and finished the month long event completing 8 of the 15 additional sketches. Below are 2 very different lo’s I created using very different styles. They were the first 2 I completed for the event.

This one really challenging for me since I don’t typically doodle on my layouts and Nat’s style is very unique. I was very inspired by her sketch and example (she was even nice enought to include a tutoral on how she created hers!) and loved working beyond my comfort zone. Thanks Nat! Here’s what I came up with:

If you have any questions about what materials were used, I’d be more than happy to let you know, just contact me with any questions. The bg paper is MME Stella & Rose, the tissue paper is 7 gypsies, the frame is Webster’s Pages, the drops I used for rain are by Robin’s Nest. All adhesives were by Helmar. Here’s the sketch it was based on:

I went very CAS (clean and simple) for the next one:

Again, since I’m posting something I created weeks ago, I’m not including a full materials list, but if you have any questions, I’m easy to contact. 😀 The papers and embellies are Teresa Collins Sports Edition II, I used an Epiphany punch and epoxy circle for the baseball embellie. All adhesives were by Helmar. The 450 Quick Dry made it a breeze to attach that bit of mesh trim on the photo, btw! 😀 Here’s the sketch my layout was based on:

Over the next couple of days, I’ll be posting 6 more layouts based on the Scrapbook Challenges sketches from last month. TFL!
