OK little things please little minds I know...
But thank you Stuck?! for the extra time
Firstly the sketch and layout for September 15th
It was going to be simpler but the layers and patterns just kept coming! And besides the photos are all bright and busy so why not reflect that?
The base paper is from Simple Stories and the blue corrugated is from Fancy Pants but everything else is Basic Grey clippings. I was so pleased with how the big white dots worked with an eyedropper and Mr Huey white.
I loved the triangle paper but couldn't add that in so decided to turn some of the triangles into mock pinwheels.
I am so glad I scrapped this. Just to remind Phil and I of the Sisyphian effort of the market workers who sweated for hours to clear the space (we know 'cos we had a meal our first night on the edge of the market place and watched them, marvelling at the hard work). They finished about 10pm only to put it back again next morning.
By the way - do you like the word Sisyphian? its about the only thing I remember from studying Camus for French A level.
And here is the layout using the September 1st Stuck?! Sketch
(And I don't say that a lot about my stuff)
Maybe because it is another memory that I so want to keep and the colours just reflect the whole holiday so well.
The background circle was done using a very old Crafters Workshop circle template - look I was using it in 2008! I used lemonade Distress Ink for the circle. All of the papers and stickers are from the Wonderful Day paper pack (that I have been using a lot but still have loads left!)
The letter stickers were a bit flat so I added some Glossy Accents and Peeled Paint distress glitter
The other non FP items were these cute coated woodshapes from Studio Calico; American Crafts gold glitter tape and some teeny gold sequins
There was a possibility of Stuck?! ceasing to produce sketches but I for one am so glad it is going to continue.
