I love this photo of Benji and Natalie. It really deserves a fun, bright, layout and when I saw this months sketch challenge at Scrap 365 I knew that I wanted to give it a go. I love using lots of layers in my scrapbooking and this sketch incorporates as many layers as you can fit in! I used the awesome, bright 'Finlay' papers from Glitz Designs. When I first bought this collection I wasn't sure how well the colours would match my photos - they are so bright and incorporate busy patterns!!! As is often the case as soon as I started using them I couldn't stop.
I stamped and inked my background, before layering on my papers. I cut up a Project Life card for the journaling block and the 'This is Awesome' title card.
The black 'Thickers' that I used for my title word 'Hero' blended into the black background paper a little too much so I used a swipe of white gesso and white gel pen outlines to make the letters 'pop'.
To add a little detail to my photo I used a Becky Higgins Project Life overlay. These are so cool and add an instant border and sentiment to your photo!
Thanks for calling by today - I hope I have inspired you a little and that you are having a great week!
