Hello Lovelies, Theresa here today sharing a layout I created following the September sketch! I love a great sketch for how easy it helps pull a layout together, and this month's sketch works beautifully with the September Farmhouse kit.
This is the layout I will be sharing with you today! I was loving the pinks and greens this month, and I have used the black and white as lovely neutrals as well.
One of my favorite things about using sketches is that you can re-imagine any of the elements in any way you wish. In this layout, for example, I made one of the background patterned papers my mixed media element instead of paper. I took my Prima Art Alchemy paints plus a really wide, dry paint brush, and painted simple strokes onto my background.
Then, once my background was fully dry, I began adding the other papers and elements to complete the layout. I chose patterned papers that contrast against each other, so the black polka dot contrasts against the pink and white background, and another tiny bit of pink and white on top of that.
I have used some bits of ribbon from my stash as a little embellishment on the side, and it gave me an opportunity to include one of the little gold pin included in the kit!
I probably have my photos a bit larger than the sketch shows, so my title is going above the left photo. I have used one of the kraft tags, and also layered a few more word strips on top of that to incorporate a bit more color to the tag.
My photos for this layout are from my daughter's 11th birthday so I definitely wanted a feminine feel to this layout. The floral die cuts in this kit are perfect, so I have layered them over and under this photo. They repeat the pinks in the layout and also lead your eye down and around the page. Here is one more look at this fun, happy page.
Have you been working with this month's sketch and kit? We would love to see, so be sure to share and tag us. Use #cliquekits. Thank you for joining me today!
