Sketchy Thursdays DT Entry

Anyone who follows my blog knows that I RELY on sketches or scraplifting to do my layouts. I couldn't scrap my way out of a cardboard box without a sketch. I love them because they make me look like I know what I'm doing.

This is why I decided to take a stab at being a Sketchy Thursday Guest Design Team member. Here is the sketch for the challenge:

Doing sketches 1) with any kind of "artsy" look and 2) that much white space is outside the realm of what I'm used to, so I was definitely up for this challenge. And you know what? I think I did a pretty good job. (If I do say so myself.) :)

Here is the layout I created:

When I decided to scrap this picture, I knew the Echo Park "Little Girl" line was the only one I should use. The colors all go together so well. I used some purple and pink Glimmer Mists for the splatters and Sew Easy floss for the stitching. I am THRILLED with the way this layout turned out! I recently figured out how to distress papers and went a little distress-happy, but I'm happy with the effect. One small thing I'm proud of is the chipboard flower that I embossed and sprayed with Glimmer Mist to look like the flower on the hat my daughter's wearing. So cute!

Fingers crossed! :)

SIDE NOTE: I didn't make it, but I had fun trying!
