No Limits Allowed
This weeks sketch at Stuck on U Sketches was another joy to do. I know we each have our favorites but personally, I like the clean and simple sketches so that I can use my creativity to embellish and make it my own (not that this was simple but y'all know what I mean! LOL!)
I don't know how it happened since I am such a big fan of DCWV paper stacks...but I thought I didn't need some stacks and my last shopping trip to Joann's proved me wrong! This time around maybe I saw this stack with the mind set of having the 2 boys...Generation Tech is such a fun and bold stack with computer, cell phones and video games. Good for any tech lover and even for a teen! Well with that said, all PP comes from there and then rest of the solid cardstock came out of my stash.
I also needed to make this weeks sketch into a double as I had some photos that needed a scrapping....
I added my journaling and doodling around the edges with a white gel pen. I could do this to every page because I enjoy to write and the doodling part, well, that's always fun too!
Now for some of the detail! I fussy cut the glossy images from the printed paper and lined them up in a row here....
These larger images came from another print within the stack. I just fussy cut them out and added them to the page (well, not all of them...I lost some that I had cut...dang it!)
You can kinda see here that I used a layer of Stickles with Glossy Accents on top...I loved how that turned out but next time would add another layer of Glossy Accents. But all in all it was a great accent to the pieces (warning, always do this with thicker card stock not papers as they will warp)
I wanted to add that the "raindow" pieces on each page was also cut from the same print paper as the larger music players (not sure what else to call them! LOL!) There were also two music notes that I punched with a circle punch, I only got to use one since I lost the other.
I did the same thing with the Stickles and Glossy Accents on the music notes as well. Here is a detail of my title which was cut from Graphically Speaking. You will notice I added the, I think its a MP3 player, to the center of the O on No. I also layered the whole thing with left over cardstock because I felt like it needed to pop off the page more. I also added some more fussy cut pieces on the rainbow part here as well.
My goodness...ok last one...LOL...I really just wanted to show some of the layering I did for the photos. I wish I could give credit to individuals for this. In all the holding that I do with having a baby, I find myself spending time on Scrapbook.com viewing pages and pages of galleries. One of the things that caught my attention was matting photos in different, bold colors. So I was able to try that here, and loved it! That is something you will see from me again.
And today means only one more week of school left! Then our family will be on summer vacation! Also a heads up if you find me missing some this month! Thank you all SO much for taking the time to come by....hope you liked!!!
