Hello Clique Kits friends! Today I have my take on the CK October sketch.
I have used my. October Gather kit to create my layout.
I firstly cut leaves on my Silhouette Cameo. I decided to gold foil the tips of the leaves for pops of colour and to add texture. I used Heidi Swapp's Gold Foil Flakes. I added a thin layer of clear glue and then covered the tips of the leaves. When dry I used a hard bristle paint brush and brushed off the excess. I love how each leaf tip looks different depending on how hard you brush off the excess.
On my white base paper I added a spray and splatters of Heidi Swapp Pink Blush color shine. I then added my leaves in a way they appeared to be falling. To add texture and definition I attached to my page with machine stitching to the centre, I lifted the sides of the leaves up as I didn't want them to appear flat.
I then layered 3 paper strips and added my photo. I added a die cut floral bunch and tucked it under the side of the photo. On the opposite side I added a floral bunch sticker over my photo. I finished off adding a sticker heart and bee.
I created my title using the word die cut 'thankful' and the 'so blessed' sticker finished off with a heart sticker. I added a floral paper strip to the top and bottom to break up the white. As in the sketch I added a floral bloom die cut to the right side of my page with an added word sentiment. I really wanted to keep this layout uncluttered and with lots of white space so my gold tipped leaves had maximum impact.
Well that's it from me today, I would love to see your take on the sketch so don't forget you can add it to Clique FB group or # @cliquekits on Instagram.
