Sorry for the sporadic posts and radio silence lately. My laptop has been on the fritz. The process of figuring out that it was slowly eating up files and then Internet browsing capability disappeared was a long, slow decline. The attempt at rebooting Windows was long and painful. Nor successful yet my Internet browsing has resumed and my files have re-appeared... Either that or I'm just going mental... Very likely as well! LOL!
Today I have to share with you a layout I created based on a sketch I created for this month's sketch challenge over at Cocoa Daisy! I love creating sketches and am happy to be doing so again! If you would like to play along, we would love to have you join in. No Cocoa Daisy kits necessary!
Here's the sketch;
And here's my interpretation of my own sketch;
The sketch is originally based on a previous layout that I created for Cocoa Daisy. I don't want two layouts that look the same so I worked the sketch to work with the goodies I had from the February kits and the photo I wanted to scrap with. I still used the photo layers and the far edge strip, just not as many and not as big/wide.
I gotta say, I am a fan of puffy stickers! They have long been something I have loved so I am loving that they are back in vogue in the papercrafting world. I love having a bit of dimension on my layouts and they are the perfect amount. So fun! I just used three of the DITL cards to back the photo.
That large flower is fussy cut from one of the patterned papers along with a few digital die cuts. The die cuts are not from this month's subscriber exclusive cut files. I found this month's files tough to cut with the clarity I like so many of them I print and cut. I have a layout and video upcoming using a pencil file that I print and cut then watercolored for a school layout - stay tuned. I also print and cut the banner up top then used markers to color the triangles in.
I think I have a process video of this layout in the making as well. I just haven't had the chance to edit and voice over with the technology debacles of late... Perhaps another to join the vault of unused process videos. I just can't seem to edit them and voice over as fast as I can edit photos and write blog posts. Not that either of those of rapid either. I just have been doing the later two longer and thus have a more streamlined process. Plus with the video you still have to write a blog post... What are your thoughts on process videos? Do you like them? Do you care about the narration or just like watching the process unfold? I would love to hear your take!
Thanks for popping in today!
