Create – dt layout for Creative Embellishments

It’s Thursday, so I’m up on the Creative Embellishments blog with a layout to share. 😀 CE is sponsoring the Stuck?! Sketches January 15th challenge, so I decided to play along. Webster’s Pages has also had a different challenge posted each day this week on their blog, so I combined their day 1 challenge (monochromatic) with the Stuck?! sketch. 😀

For my take on the challenges, I decided to go with a pic of 3 of my kids coloring, drawing, cutting and pasting. They love to create and tend to do something artistic every day. The Creative Embellishments Create set was perfect for what I wanted to portray and the steampunk light bulbs helped illustrate their innovative, creative ideas. Here’s what I came up with:

So Sweet – dt layout for Creative Embellishments

It’s Thursday, so I’m up on the Creative Embellishments blog today with a page I created using two of their fabulous flourishes, smart phone frame, hash tag title piece and one of the gorgeous bird cages. I stained and painted the flourishes, but for the birdcage, I also added some details to the birds using Pitt artist pens.

With permission from the site owner, I also combined my dt work for CE with the September challenge at the 123 Challenge Blog. Here’s what I came up with:
