Paper Bakery Sketch Challenge #8

Happy Sunday everyone! It is time for another Paper Bakery Sketch Challenge! I present you...


And this is my take on the sketch! I definitely did not follow the sketch this time. In fact I switched it up quite a bit. I used only one photo and I flipped the design horizontally. I also moved the position of the title. I love creating sketches, but I really enjoy how they can inspired my layout.  Sometimes I really enjoy taking the easy road and to follow the sketch exactly, and at other times it is fun to use it as a starting point. That is exactly what I did this time. I was inspired to use the squares above and below the photo as well as the strip behind them. Instead of circles though I choose to use some die cut clouds. Remember, let the sketch inspire you. You do not have to follow the shapes and patterns exactly.


As I created this layout, I used a combination of products from both the July Boardwalk Scrapbook Kit and Project Kit.  One of my favorite things in this kit were the Studio Calico Wood Veneer Circles. I gave them a coat of Distress Ink in Picket Fence for a bit of a whitewashed look and then I added a layer of Glossy Accents for a bit of shine.  Sometimes it is just fun to play with products and see if you can give them a different look!


I also had fun playing with the exclusive Paper Bakery Anchor Background stamp that is part of the July Mixed Media Kit! I stamped it and heat embossed it using gold embossing powder. I think it added a fun and unexpected touch of shimmer to the die cut clouds!
