Look Dada! Layout – Let’s Capture These Sketches #92

This week at Let’s Capture These Sketches, we had another gorgeous sketch by Ness to work with. I loved working with it and felt that a photo strip would be perfect for the layout. I chose a strip with Larry holding Christian. He was so fascinated by their image on the screen that he kept pointing to it and saying excitedly, “Look, Dada”! 😀

Here’s my take on the sketch:

Materials:

American Crafts cardstock
My Mind’s Eye Stella & Rose Hattie papers
MME Stella & Rose Hattie frame
MME Stella & Rose Hattie brads
MME Stella & Rose Hattie charm
Little Yellow Bicycle doilies
Maya Road chipboard alphas
Folk Art Acrylic Paint

Adhesives:

Helmar Adhesive Runner
Helmar Acid Free Glue
Helmar Zapdots
Helmar Liquid Scrapdots

He Just Can’t Sit Still – Layout for Pagemaps and Practical Scrappers

Last weekend, Larry and the kids went to a local mall to get some photo strips taken of them. I needed just one for a different project that will posted here late next week. That left me with 2 more strips, but I didn’t have any specific projects that required them. Rather than saving the 2 extras for a future project, I decided to use one right away. One of the two current pagemaps sketches seemed perfect. All I needed to do was turn it 90 degrees to the left.

Practical Scrappers has also been so kind as to post some of my work to their blog recently. Most recently, they posted one of my Crate Paper cards and a Bo Bunny layout (their blue post), so I decided to participate in their current Challenge Me Tuesday and combine it with this sketch. The PS challenge is to use wood grain papers. Here’s what I came up with:

Materials:

My Mind’s Eye Stella & Rose Hattie papers
MME Stella & Rose Mabel papers
MME Hattie trims
DMC embroidery floss
Maya Road Sheers-A year to remember
Jillibean Soup journaling sprout
October Afternoon alpha stickers
Hero Arts trims
MME Stella & Rose Mabel layered chipboard sticker
Alcohol Ink
Distress Ink

Adhesives:

Helmar 450 Quick Dry
Helmar adhesive runner

Tools:

Martha Stewart lace doily edge/border punch
Cutter Bee Bugs (punches holes to make hand-stitching easier)
