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

How Old Are You? – Sketches in Thyme challenge entry

Here’s another layout I created using the fabulous Stella and Rose collection by My Mind’s Eye. I’ve been very impressed with how well the embellishments coordinate with all of papers. I especially like their new label stickers and metal buttons! The brads for this collection are reminiscent of ones they came out with for the Lost and Found collection. Love them!

For this layout, I again stuck with the “Hazel” range and based it off of the Pagemaps sketch for the Thursday Takes Challenge #38 at Sketches In Thyme:

Materials:

My Mind’s Eye Stella and Rose “Mother” papers
MME Stella and Rose “Mother” transparency
MME S&R “Lovely” label sticker
MME S&R “Fancy” button
MME S&R “Lovely” brads
MME S&R “Memories” trims
Webster’s Pages Storytellers alphas

Adhesives:

Glue Arts Glue Glider Pro PermaTac
Helmar 450 Quick Dry liquid
