You are Awesome - new sketch from Stuck? Sketches!




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. 
Thanks for calling in at my blog today. hope that you are having a great week. Do head over to the Stuck blog and check out the other DT members pages. We would love for you to have a go at this challenge yourself - we have some great prizes to entice you!!!
