Happy Friday, everyone! I for one am ecstatic that it is Friday .. been a long, busy week for me!
Today I want to share with you my take on the sketch that we are revealing for the next challenge at Stuck on U Sketches. I hope that you will hop on over there if you haven't been yet because we are introducing 4 new designers, saying good-bye to 2 and we introducing a new sponsor as well!
For this page, I used my February Swirlydoos kit along with some flowers and ribbon from my stash. First, I had this awesome new photo of dgd Maddie with her fiancee, Marcos, that I wanted to scrap. But secondly, my kit contained some of the new Graphic 45 Core'dinations embossed cardstock. Well, this piece has clocks on it with the hands set to 3:00 .... which is the time of day for Maddie's and Marcos' wedding .. so my inspiration sprung from that clock. I cut my cardstock so that I could maximize the clocks and get the larger one approximately where there is a circular photo on the sketch. Then I sanded it really well for definition. Using my craft knife, I trimmed around the clocks so that I could slip my larger photo behind them.
The word Joy was cut using my Cricut Winter Woodlands cartridge .. go figure?! Then I computer generated the words Share~in~our, printed them out, cut them apart and tucked them here and there among the Prima flowers. I love that awesome feather that came in the kit. My journaling is partial wording from their wedding invitation. I did quite a bit of distressing to my page .. good ole Zutter Distrezz-it-all .. plus a little hand tearing and folding.
The paper as well as the mirrored embellishment are TPC Studio Grandma's Attic. I tucked a filmstrip between the mirror and a Prima flower.
Here you can see the embossed clock and see how the sanding brings it to life. I had lots of fun putting this page together .. I always enjoy working with earth tones.
