Oh My Gawrsh! ~SOUS Original Sketch~

Oh My Gawrsh!

 Eek! Another wee late post, dang! Ok, I am! And better late then never since I am getting to share maybe one of my tippy top favorite layouts! Yay! And what better then for a sketch challenge, designed by yours truly for Stuck on U Sketches

 I have been really enjoying designing sketches which I've been doing for a bit now, and now with our new card challenges, I think I've been enjoying those even more! It's great having a place where you know each week will have original sketches! =)

 My sketch.

 My layout.

 Anyone that has even once tried to put characters together will know how extremely time consuming it is! Let alone choosing different characters, moving and welding shadows together. I am sure the design alone took around 3 or more hours, and another day to put the page together (a day in the life of a Mom with 3 kids at home, which means I stopped 100 times before finishing).

 Pretty happy with these guys...but by the look on their faces, not sure what they think of being put together!!!!

 I used the large tree from My Community as a background for the photos. That inspiration came from the sketch, instead of using another patterned paper in the large square, added the tree instead. The hills were hand cut, the grass from Zooballoo. Butterfly punch and small flowers are Martha S.

 Had to do a close up of the title! Font from Mickey and Friends Font (an all time fav of mine). To help this stand out, I clear embossed tiny polka dots from Papertrey Ink (polka dot background basics). Adore how that turned out! Plus the doodling and added clouds I think round out the Disney feel to the page!

 Thanks for coming by and see you all soon...don't forget to check out the huge variation of projects by our Design Team! Such unique layouts this week!

Oh My Leah, this page is so darn cute. I love the Disney characters, and yes, I have done the 7 dwarfs. I decided to do a short cut while I had a particular colour on the mat and cut all their noses at the same time - big mistake!! Which nose belongs to which dwarf? That was fun - NOT!
This is such a fun page, and all your doodling and extra wee touches certainly makes it a winner for me... Hugs xx
