LGS & SATW Challenge


Hi Guys!

I'm back again with a real simple layout this time round with minimum mediums and a lot of paper matching scrapbooking.

My layout is inspired by this sketch from Let's Get Sketchy. I really loved this week's layout. I think the design is simple yet refreshing. There're simply so many elements you can play with.


As you can see later on, some of my choices of embellishments and colour scheme are inspired by this moodboard from Scrap Around the World which you can find more information here


I pulled out Amy Tangerine's Stitched Collection Map of my Heart paper and trimmed it down to the triangles I wanted. I popped them up with cardboard pieces (to save of pop-dots, hehe). I layered it with Crate Paper's Confetti Collection Cloud Nine paper. As for the papers I layered beneath my photos, they are from my scraps stash, I'm sorry I can't seem to remember which brands they're from. 


The sketch has a horizontal element, to incorporate that in my layout without hiding the triangle details, I decided to cut some glitter banners from my American Crafts Glitter Cardstock. I found out that the easiest way to cut a banner was to first cut a slit in the middle, depending on how deep you want the 'V' for your banner to be, then followed by cutting the from the corner of the banner to the end of the slit. I think this way is the easiest to ensure you get proportionate banner. 


And this is the final look of this layout!

Like I said earlier, there really isn't much techniques to this layout. 


I first cut out triangles because I wanted to create my own chevron pattern as I don't have any patterned papers with chevron patterned that fit in the moodboard. I did some stamping with Kaisercraft Tiny Dot stamps (MY FAV!) to add some interest to it as well as diluting some black gesso and splattered it on my layout. 

I also used Mambi stickers as embellishment as inspired by the chalkboard on the SATW moodboard.


I then create my own rosettes using rosettes dies from Sizzix Tim Holtz line. I think it's really one of the MUST-HAVES dies if you have a die-cutting machine. It can create 2 sizes rosettes at once and rosettes are perfect for any types of projects. 

I used mainly Prima and Petaloo flowers in this project. I also layered sequins from Teresa Collins with dew drops from Robin's Nest.



I think dew drops are awesome as embellishments. They come in a bottle and it's rather inexpensive given the amount inside the bottle. 

I also used Echo Park stickers from the Here & Now collection as my sentiments. 


That's all for this week's post.

Thanks for reading! Leave some comments to let me know what you think! :)
