Sweet Thing – dt layout for Paper Secrets and Helmar Challenge entry

I love to combine my dt work with challenges (or just combine challenges) when I can, so when Helmar posted a gorgeous sketch by Lydell Quin for their Feb/March challenge and Nicolle said she would be hosting the Paper Secrets March Technique challenge (using punches), I thought they’d go together perfectly! 😀 Though it didn’t turn out the way I originally had in mind, this combo certainly did get me using my punches! 😀

Just Like Dad Layout

This is the second part of the 2 pager I was talking about the other day. The left page is “You Shine a Light” which I posted a couple of days ago. At the top of the other page, the word “You” is in red block type, so I continued that onto this page adding “want to be” creating a subtitle to link the pages together. I also carried over the puppy w/the oversize crown. The journaling reads, “You have your dad’s magnetic personality and want to be just like him. You wear his shirts & hats & want to do everything he does…even when he’s napping.

For this layout, I again combined a few challenges. I loosely based it on the sketch for the NSD sketch challenge on Paper Secrets, combined it with Rosey’s white space challenge on Sketches4All and the digi brushes challenge on InspireMe (Webster’s Pages), but I’m not entering into the WP challenge. Here’s what I came up with:

Materials:

Webster’s Pages Yacht Club 12×12 cardstock
WP Ladies and Gents 12×12 cardstock
WP Ladies and Gents digi brushes
WP journaling card
WP Storytellers Alpha stickers
Viva Pearl Pen in silver
Kaisercraft pearls
ink and markers

Adhesives:

Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots
Helmar 450 Quick Dry (I could have used the craft glue, but needed it to dry quickly, so I went with the 450).

TFL!
