Sketch Time!!

So excited to be back this week with a new sketch challenge for April - YAY!!!  This month the sketch showcases two photos, some fun circular embellishments, and a mix of patterned papers.  Keep in mind the sketch is simply a starting point - feel free to make it your own to work for your photos and supplies :)

Here is what I came up with using the April Melrose kit.  I stuck with mostly neutral patterned papers, but found lots of fun embellishments within the kit to add "pops" of color throughout.

I used one of the Amy Tangerine envelopes to "house" all my title work.  The graph paper you see through the envelope is actually from the Amy Tangerine packaging :)  For my circular elements, I used a mix of punched patterned paper sunburst circles that I stitched down and some of those fun SEI gold stickers found in the kit.  These are an easy way to add a bit of subtle glitz to your layout :)

As usual, there were TONS of great stickers and tags in the kit to cluster around the photo.  I also added some splatters of mist in grey and gold to the background.  In addition, the Pink Paislee gold rub-on stars were PERFECT to add to the background :)
