And this is the sketch I used:
I did make a few adjustments, like for example at the bottom of the layout … I really tried to keep the space “open”, but I just couldn’t do it, I had to fill it. I started by adding one of those tear strips that are added to all the sheets in this collection, but that wasn’t enough. In the end I used the part of the paper that I had cut off the top; I turned it around and adhered it right above the dark blue strip of paper. I tucked a bit of yellow patterned paper behind it as well, so it matched with what I had done at the top.
The photo I used was taken only last month. The kids were all wearing clothes in the same colour and didn’t even do this on purpose. I made them sit down and pose, which didn’t work of course. I took 20 photos and this was the best, lol. But I’m happy with it, especially because it matches this kit so well! I matted the photo on two pieces of patterned paper and added lots of die-cuts and stickers.
Here are a few close-ups:
ust adore those puffy icon stickers and would love to hoard them! But I realize that that would be a shame so I forced myself to use them. What I also love is that the Thickers come in two colours: in black and in white and you can choose which colour fits your page best.
After a bit of machine stitching and a few drops of ink (not quite sure about those to be honest) I was done! Hope you like it.
