Today is the release for this week's sketch from Let's Scrap. One of the things that I enjoy about being on the DT is the challenge of having to use a particular sketch. Sometimes they are easy to use and others a lot of thought and trial and error comes in to play. This week's sketch was the latter. I must have printed my pictures 3 times in different sizes and colors and switched my paper around twice that many times before I found a combination I liked.

I started with a sheet of patterned paper that is baby blue with white Polk-a-dots. Then I layered a piece of pale yellow card stock on top of that. Even though I used rectangular photos I still tried to get the cluster effect from the sketch. I liked the way the black and white photos looked against the yellow background. I used blue chalk to give the circles color and make them look like bubbles. Finally I finished off the layout by adding the ducky stickers. I felt like it was still missing something so I added 2 strips of white ribbon with a piece of cream in between, along the top of the page.
Thanks for taking a look. I hope to see your take on this fun sketch in the Let's Scrap Gallery this week!
