Sketch 193: Pink + Glitter
June 29, 2010
Okay, so it's definitely not my normal thing. Wait until you see all the pink and glitter on this layout! Here's the Pencil Lines sketch:
I wandered away from the sketch for the most part. However I kept several of the elements: the large mat behind the photo, the layered embellishment, and the paper strip across the bottom. The more I work on sketches the more I discover that I *need* to wander away. It always feels very tight and confined if I don't.
Check out the details:
I made a paper bow and then used Rock Candy Stickles on it to add a bit of shine! I also used the Rock Candy Stickles on the cupcake, which I pieced and then stitched together:
I inked the edges of the large scallop with brown Distress Ink. It really helps to create contrast and focus your eye towards the center. And I like the mixture of the tough distressing with the soft glitter and girly pinks on the layout.
I added a bit of bling to the letters with some single rhinestones. And I added a row of rhinestones...
...to the frame around the journaling.
