NOT A PAGE FOR MY HUSBAND TO VIEW (GO AWAY BABE!)
Paradise Is Life With You
Hey all! I've got another sketch to share with you today and it's certainly different from the tough collage sketch last time at Stuck on U Sketches. This time, either keep it clean and simple or...take it where all the Design Team did, I don't think those girls could do CAS if they tried! LOL! Anyways, here's the sketch...
I had to start by scanning the photo and making it into a 5x7. Older photo, older camera and so the enlarged image was pretty fuzzy (yes, the technical word). So I played around with editing and then also thought that the colors would be cool if I used the antique effect. So everything started around the photo. I picked papers to go with at this point. My title was cute from Life's a Beach.
And I added this very fun birdie with a blue goggly eye. I did not weld these pieces together but just sat him up on top. I did cut a black title layer and then popped the green title, which I used both brown and white acrylic paint to distress. Do any of you recognize this paper? An old Summer stack by DCWV, in white. So the whole piece got a good dose of distress ink (as did the subtle sand print from the same stack.)
My journaling and another photo of the flowers. I used Prima's, bling and mixes of leaves from Life's a Beach. Some where inked and almost all were stamped with background stamps.
Here you can see that I used the title to mask. I used mist on this page by the bushel, LOL! And my tasty drinks (which is a funny thing because my husband is Straight Edge, which for those that don't know that means that he doesn't drink, do drugs, etc. Never has...) Me, I'm a lush...ok, maybe not either but the drinks from Pack Your Bags were fun to make! Another misted thing on the page because originally these were very, very bright colors!
Ok, gosh...only a handful or so more months before I need to finish this album and reveal it to my husband on our 10th anniversary...I'm so excited! I just finished a double layout for the album but that's for a future sketch..so you gotta wait, totally different from this page!
Have a great weekend friends! Don't forget to stop in at SOUS...
