During this weekend I will be celebrating the 5th birthday of my little boy in addition to the 1st birthday of Cardabilities. I am very excited that Karan's gave us the opportunity to participate along with the Cardabilities designers at this event (Cardabilities's blog hop)!
Today is the reveal of a new sketchabilities sketch! Here is sketch #39.
Looking for photos, I wanted to scrap a portrait from my birthday boy even though this photo is from summer 2010. Most of the supplies are from 3ScrappyBoys November 2010 Add-on kit.
For this layout, two corners from the background paper from House of Three Anthology collection were inked with yellow mist using a distressing application tool.
The photo is double mat against vanilla cardstock and the packaging of some Prima Marketing's vines. I opted to not alter the packaging's blue color, since it is very similar to one of Studio Calico's patterned papers.
The chipboard is raw chipboard and came with the kit. I painted it with vanilla acrylic paint, then I applied gold stickles. Love how it turned out!
The scallop diecut is from Jillibean Soup! I added a circle from patterned paper to hide the design and make everything more uniform.
Love all the Prima and Tim Holtz buttons that came with the kit, as you can see very glittery and sparkly but at the same time masculine!
Some items are from my stash: I added the round stars stickers from my stash (Prima dude) and the chipboard letters used for the title. The yellow stars were created with a star's punch from Stampin' Up!
The roses transparencies were fussy cut with scissors. This is an old transparency from Heidi Swapp, therefore it is not wonder it fits so well with the background paper designed also by Heidi!
I created the rosette with Studio Calico's paper that came with the kit!!!! Love rosette's flowers since they work very well with masculine pictures and/or layouts. For the rosette, I used the Scor-Pal to score the flower. This tool makes everything very easy.
I like very much how this one turned out! Definitely, I will use this sketch again!! And every time, I stumble at clothing stores with some T-shirt's like the one at the photo, I will get them! I really do not know this style's name but I like it!!
For more inspiration with sketch #39, do not forget to visit Sketchabilities, to see the always gorgeous work of the other designers!
Wishing a wonderful day!
