Three blog posts today as we had Tinsel Tuesday earlier on, followed by my whimsy reindeer art and now we have another page using the Moments and Memories sketch of the year too!
This is actually the first scrap page I managed to do at my new desk a couple of weeks ago.
It was also a response to a Layout a day prompt from the app I downloaded of “Go big or go home!” So decided to grab this big picture I had in the stash of pics to be scrapped and use that. And whilst putting it together and choosing a layout I decided to get ahead on my M and M blog post and use the sketch as my starting point.
Now first I have to admit that having all my embellishments etc in easy reach has made this into a rather heavy layout in terms of the amount of stash I used on it… Completely in contrast to my usual style of keeping things linear and clean and simple. And I love that my style has changed a a result of my surroundings having changed!
I used some papers from the stash from a pack of American crafts papers I got at TKMaxx greatly reduced in cost! I also grabbed a doily and lots and lots of random embellishments and ribbon bits and pieces. Some of these were taken off some of the swaps I received at convention too… So a bit of a recycle job going on! I inked everything using Soft Suede to give them an aged look and also used my distressing tool on a few edges too.
Love how this turned out … And how different a page it is from the other M and M pages done so far even though it is using the same starting point! Goes to show a sketch doesn’t hamper the creativity at all!
