For the love of pretty paper – July Sketch Challenge

Hi There,

Last week I entered this layout into the FTLOPP scrapbooking group where they have weekly alphabet challenges and a monthly challenge. This month it was sketches and they had 6 to choose from. I went with this one below

I tend to keep quite accurate to a sketch as when I use them I’m trying to make pages quickly and it helps my process. Below is my take on this sketch. It’s quite true except I staggered the lines in the background using up paper from the Shimelle Starshine collection here as I have lots to use still.

I gave the background layer a bit of texture by sewing up and sides of each strip, inking the edges and giving them a little bit of a tear. This layout was meant to be pretty silly with it just being some fun snap chat photos as my son is obsessed with playing with it at the minute, especially the dog one.

All the enbellishments were from the Starshine collection and I was trying to use up a couple of letter stickers before throwing away the rest and added a few silvery enamel dots and x’s
