Today was a lot of "FIRSTS" for me...I created and used a sketch by Creative Embellishments and used a few NEW fun techniques.
When I saw this challenge by Creative Embellishments, I was intrigued immediately.
I was inspired by the pastel colours flowing in the background and the sketch was perfect for some pictures I had in my stash.
Creative Embellishments uses a picture and a sketch to inspire you:
|CE March Inspiration Picture|
|March CE Sketch|
and here is my take on the picture/sketch:
|Crazy Hair Day|
To create the background I used my Tim Holtz water brush (first time) I was aiming for a tie-dye affect (to coordinate his shirt) Some time ago, I watched a tutorial using coffee filters, I had to try this.
Using a coffee filter and the same water colour, I made my own coordinating embellishments.
The coffee filter also made some picture corners to coordinate, I kept the chenille twists from my sons hair and created an abstract butterfly, I used: candy dots, yellow floss, buttons (one button I created an abstract butterfly using wire to pop the slinky my son is playing with), acrylic paint, white texture effect, silhouette (arrow with faux sewing and resembles a J for Joaquin).
I love how this airy layout flowed together, it was so inspiring from a picture/sketch take. This was fun!! You should play along.
Thanks for stopping by
