An Artsy Take on Julie's Sketch

Hi everyone!  I loved Julie's sketch this month, how about you??  I really loved the clustered feel of the photos and the title so I shrunk the sketch down, kept embellishments super minimal (I am at the end of my Hello Sunshine kit after all!), and decided to accessorize using mists.  I used 4 different spray mists to splatter the background of my white cardstock, wrote some loopy journaling around the photos and then added vellum to the top and bottom instead of along the sides.  Totally a departure from my normal scrappy style, I usually use splatters as a small accent, not such a focal point on the page, but I really enjoyed stepping out of my comfort zone and creating something unique (for me) from this kit :)

I loved the wood title block in the kit that said "Life is Good On the Lake" but I haven't been to a lake in about 20 years so I thought I'd cover that little portion up with a Elle's Studio pennant flag housing the second half of the title.  'Life is Good in da' Hood' is a silly title that I think is double funny compared with my son scowling like a badass in all the pictures :P

Well that's my 7th layout from the Hello Sunshine kit, and I still have one more layout PLUS 3 cards to share! Boy do these kits last and last :)  Have a great Thursday!
