This sketch challenge is sponsored by the Digi Shoppe and they sent us this image to play with.
I am not one for cutesy images or colouring in really but I thought I would go outside of my comfort zone and give it a try.
Here is what I came up with.
I printed the image onto watercolour paper and cut it out and matted it onto the pink cardstock. The image was coloured in using my neo pens and an aqua brush. I added the quote and the ribbon and flowers.
I enjoyed playing with it and who knows I may even give it a go again. :)
The next project is my layout for Let's Scrap Sketches #1-14-15 which has closed but I thought I would share my layout anyway.
Here is the sketch.
It has been a while since I did a double pager and I had a lot of fun doing it.
I am absolutely in love with Maja Design papers and I knew when I saw these photos of my darling Paige that I wanted to use them. I changed the photos to black and white because I wanted a vintage feel to the layout. I also tinted them slightly with a sage green tint. I have kind of kept to the sketch but opted not to go with all the little bits of paper.
Mu journalling on the back of the tags says:
I don't think I will ever get tired of being entertained by you Miss Paige. You are a delightful and engaging creature that is here to live out loud, and live out loud you do. You are the one who demands attention and cuddles as often as possible, your face lights up when you see the people that you love and there is no mistaking what you are feeling. You are all over the place, up and down, exploring, standing, sitting and flitting from one thing to the next with the seeming attention of a goldfish, but you are like a sponge learning, experiencing and soaking it all in. You know what you want and want it all and you want it now and you invariably get your own way, but you do it in such a sweet way that you draw people in to your little world. You get so excited by the things you do for the first time like sitting, crawling, standing and taking your first steps. I hope that I am always able to see things the way you do for the are exciting and the world is your oyster and I will love you fiercely until I draw my final breath.
The little quotes on either side of the layout are from Kaiser Craft and were perfect for my Paige. The letters for the title were silver and I painted them with gesso and some distress paint to age them a bit.
