Dropping in today to share with you a layout that I created inspired by the latest Creative Scrappers sketch, sketch #281. You can find the sketch here if you're interested in playing along! I used the Doodlebug collection Frosty Friends for this layout, it was just perfect!
I will often change my pictures to black and white if the colors in the picture compete or don't compliment the papers that I want to use. It's quick and easy to do with PhotoShop. You would be appalled if you saw the clashing (neon) snow bibs and coats these children were wearing... Not a good scrapping Mum moment at all! LOL!
I love the little critters that Doodlebug includes in their collections. Very cute indeed. I added more dimension to the layout by layering stickers and using liqued adhesive to include some pom pom snowballs on the layout.
Layered tree stickers make for a dimensional tree, complimenting my little snow man and snowflakes!
It was really difficult to see the title on my page so the additional of a welded layer which I outlined and the wind swirl of thread really made it stand out against the snowy background. I shifted the title a tad to the right from the sketch, making it my own. Suiting the sketch to my needs.
Initially, I pondered using a large photo instead of the large bottom patterned paper, a little variety in the sketch. I just didn't have an enlargement that worked. Perhaps another picture with different papers! Stay tuned!
