Here is Scrapbook Challenges Blog's Sketch #398. Cool one huh??!! :-) I couldn't wait to use it!
I decided to use 2 pictures from Instagram - of 2 of my favorite subjects - my youngest son Jake, and our new puppy Valentino! I also have been on a Black, White and Teal, "binge" - as I think the colors go so well together! Here is my layout - what do you think??
I had so much FUN using up paper scraps and embellishments from my "stash!" I am so happy with how this layout came out - it makes me SMILE! -
(Behind the Scenes Note: I really found the thought of drawing those lines around the layout a "challenge" BUT let me tell you - once I got started - I had to stop my self and say - "That's enough!" I REALLY like how they add to the layout and bring it all together - This is definitely a "RE-DO" for me on a future layout!)
For the FULL HOUSE Challenge -
I used (2) Different ALPHA's - the black and white "My," and the chipboard "DOG"
I used - (2) Colors of Paint -(1) "Trunk Bay" Glimmer Mist - on the white back ground/base cardstock, and also on top of the "DOG" chipboard - after I painted it with Ranger's "Pool" Paint Dabber, and (2) Black -which was drops and splatters of of India Ink - FUN!
Here is a close up of the Chipboard "DOG" - I also outlined it with a Black Sharpie marker.
I used (2) Wooden Elements from QUEEN & Co. - that I purchased - along with all the rest of the items for this Layout, at my FAVORITE Local and On-Line Scrapbook Store - Scrap-a-Doodle Doo! You can see them in the close up photo below - along with some of the (5) BUTTONS - from my stash, and my sweet Tino's face!)
(5) pieces of Washi Tape was the last item in the FULL House Challenge - I had fun using it to cover up some items in the photo that took away from the color scheme of the layout -
That's my take on #398 - I hope it inspires you to get Scrappy With It! Check out all the other DT Member's Layouts over on the SCRAPBOOK CHALLENGES BLOG - We hope you will play along with us!
