Hello there! I'm back to share with you another layout I created using the gorgeous Gabrielle collection by Bo Bunny. The sweet photo is of my daughter making a wish while throwing a coin into a fountain in Cinderella's Garden in Disney World, Florida last year.
This week's layout challenge in the Bo Bunny blog was to create a layout inspired by a piece of clothing or fabric. I was inspired by the halter top Emily is wearing in the photo. I tried to recreate ruffled edges all around my page to mimic the ruffles on the front of her top. I also thought its color coordinated very well with the teals and browns in this beautiful range.
I was also inspired by another wonderful sketch designed by the talented Nadia Cannizzo from Once Upon a Sketch blog. Please check her out, she's not only super creative and gifted, but also absolutely sweet and friendly!
Because I love this paper so much, I decided not to add as many layers as I normally do, instead, I made a slit on the paper and tucked a punched trim in between. I'm very pleased with how this turned out. Here's a closer look...
The gate behind the photo is a Dusty Attic chip piece I bought from Vicky Alberto's etsy store, another super sweet and talented crafter. To get the old patina look, I first sprayed it with Tattered Leather Glimmer Mist, then lightly brushed a thin layer of turquoise blue acrylic paint and followed with another layer of Glimmer Mist. I call this, 'easy peasy patina squeeze'! I know, so corny! LOL!
I hope you have enjoyed my post today. If you like to play along with this beautiful sketch, head over to Once Upon A Sketch, the deadline is June 15th.
