Hello, everyone, I would love to share my take on the monthly challenge here at Creative Embellishments. I love doing sketch challenges. They can really get the creative juices flowing, and the twists really make you get crazy creative! I have been wanting to scrap these photos of our last trip over seas. And the Blues from the paper were perfect to match the photos. I started with some texture on the background, the paper added a abundance so I didn’t want to cover it up too much. I added a little crackle paste with the Flourish Stencil 3. I build up the background with more texture from ribbons and burlap. I took the tag shapes from the sketch and used various tags from the Tags Set 1, adding vintage paper from the late 1800’s. I actually got the books on this particular trip with Laneen. After building up the background, I used the Rectangular Stitched Frame to frame the photos, instead of three separate ones in the sketch. I added flowers, resin and metal embellishments to each of the flower clusters. I topped off the whole layout with the Best Things Title. Enjoy the creative video below and I look forward to the entries this month.
Here is the video of the creative process.
