Stick It Down


Here is my January DT layout for Stick It Down...

I was not a fan of the sketch - but I made it so I can say that without offending anyone!  This is take three - I don't usually have to restart a layout let alone restart twice!


I settle on lots of subtle layers behind my photos and a simple watercolour background...


Unusually for me, I have embraced a cream background.  I know it's not miles away from my beloved white background but it does give the layout a completely different feel.


The colour palette is Autumnal to match the photos.  I love to work with these colours.





 The layout tells the story of a drive through the New Forest randomly coming across free range pigs who were out to clear up the acorns.


Seriously, it's the best sight!  A pig crossing the road!

Here's the video:

Stuck-ish


You know when you see a sketch and get inspired but by the end of the creation it doesn't really look all that much like the sketch?  Yep, read on...


This is the January skecth from Laura W at Stuck and the diamonds started me thinking about a pack of epoxy cloud stickers in my stash.  Already this doesn't make sense, diamonds, clouds, what?!


However, I really like how it turned out.  Can you see the sketch?  The diamonds hanging down become the clouds, moon and stars.   I worked on a smaller panel so the scale was right.  When the clouds were stretched across a 12x12 they looked too small.


I had fun with some doodling, pencil work and sewing.  It has made me think; I have 4 sets of different colouring pencils and I never use them in my scrapbooking.  This has got to change!!


I popped my panel up and tucked loads of sequins in and around the edge.  I love this look and think I definitely need to play with it more in the future.




Thanks for stopping by!
