Where’s Matthew? – dt layout for Lets Capture These Sketches #123

For my take on JJ’s sketch for Let’s Capture These Sketches challenge #123, I went with mostly primary colors using Echo Park‘s A Boy’s Life collection. The journaling reads, “July 16, 2011 – I was startled when I peeked into your room that night to check on you and you weren’t in bed! I had just passed the bathroom, but thought I could have overlooked you, so I looked for you there first. When you weren’t there either, I started to get worried. I raced to my room…no Matthew! I checked downstairs and all the other bedrooms and didn’t see any sign of you. Panicked, I checked your room again. To my relief, there you were…sleeping right on top of a 3 ft. high pile of folded blankets and plastic tubs of stuff animals and toys in the back corner of your room. You were snuggled in so deep, only your head was poking out!”

I went with “Where’s Matthew”? As the title because the photos remind me of Where’s Waldo. lol Here’s my take on JJ’s sketch:

Materials:

Echo Park A Boy’s Life papers
EP A Boy’s Life diecut stickers
EP A Boy’s Life Alpha stickers
October Afternoon buttons
twine

Adhesives:

Helmar Premium Craft Glue
Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots
