Can't get my head around it being the 1st of May already! Where is the year going too???
Here is the first challenge for the new month - the new Stuck? sketch and my take on it for the design team.
The sketch is perfect to highlight that one special photo. I really love this shot taken at Easter of my daughter , Natalie (right) and my two elder son's girlfriends, Cindy (middle) and Libby (left). All three girls are so beautiful and they look so happy!
I used a dark background and scribbled a column just off-centre with a white inktense pencil. I added some random white and yellow paint splatters before layering on my paper pieces, tags and die-cuts.
The cool wood veneeer banner is a Kaisercraft product and was perfect to layer amongst the fussy cut flowers under the photo. I left it natural as I think the wood colour makes it 'pop' and draws the eye right in to the photo.
I used a transparency layered over the photograph for the title 'You are Awesome' and layered a larger one underneath to frame the focal point of the design.
I added a few details about the photo along the upper right hand edge, as the sketch suggests.
